Coffee Cheesecake Pie

Standard

My baby! I still remember how much fun I had with this sweetheart. I browsed through a couple of recipes and took bits here and there to create this. You should notice that I made the crumbs into a pie case, just to see if it was possible. And it worked out quite well, don’t you think? The little dots of chocolate sauce gave it a little professional feel and I was (and probably still am, 6 years later) excited about this dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 100g chocolate chip cookies
  • 112.5g butter
  • 87.5ml milk
  • 75g Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 40g sugar
  • 27ml coffee
  • 125g dark chocolate
  • 25ml double cream
  • 4 strawberries

Preparation Method:

  1. Grease 8cm-round loose-based flan tin.
  2. Blend or process cookies until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  3. Add butter and milk.
  4. Using one hand, press cookie mixture evenly over base and around side of prepared tin; refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 140 C. Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs and coffee; mix until blended.
  6. Pour into crust.
  7. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until centre is almost set. Cool completely on wire. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight. Decorate.

Cocoa and Coffee Sauce: Dissolve the instant coffee in hot water. Put dark chocolate, milk, double cream and butter into a bowl over a pan of simmering water and melt them together with the coffee. Stir in the sauce through a fine sieve and it is ready to serve.

Try it, try it, try it!!
