Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly coat a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons of sugar until well combined. Press into the bottom of the prepared springform pan, and 1 inch up the sides. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, then remove to cool on a wire rack.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  4. Beat the softened cream cheese in a large bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually add 1 cup of sugar, beating until blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sour cream, espresso and vanilla. Pour batter into the baked and cooled crust.
  5. Bake cheesecake in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 5 minutes; then turn the oven off, partially open the door and allow the cheesecake to rest for 15 minutes more. Remove from the oven, and run a knife around the edges. Cool cheesecake on a wire rack to room temperature, then cover the springform pan with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours.
  6. To serve, cut the cheesecake into wedges and garnish each slice with whipped cream and caramel sauce.

I'm Dawn's husband, Kevin. For over 20 years, I've been the winner. Dawn puts so much into her cooking and loves putting new dishes in front of us all the time. The Carmel Macchiato Cheesecake is another in a long line of great recipes Dawn has come up with. It's the best desert I've had and, thanks to Dawn, I've had a lot of great deserts!

I found this to be sickly sweet, as did most of my guests. It could easily serve 16, as the serving size has to be tiny in order for it to be edible. Maybe I went wrong somewhere...

The first time I made this recipe, I overbeat it and didn't use a waterbath. The cheesecake rose while baking, then fell and cracked. It was the ugliest thing I'd ever made! I ended up cutting off the high edges to make it level, then covered the top with a chocolate ganache. Everyone loved it! I've made it two times since and it has turned out beautifully each time. Don't overbeat your cheesecake, and bake it in a water bath (see instructions on baking a cheesecake). The ganache is still a nice complement--scald a cup of heavy cream, then pour it over 1 1/2 cups of chopped chocolate. Let it sit for 5 mins, then stir until melted. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla, stir, and pour /spread on top of cheesecake.

This cheesecake was absolutely incredible! I went to Starbucks and asked for a quadruple shot of espresso, used 1/4 cup for the recipe, then froze the rest in an ice cube tray to use for iced mochas. I baked it in a water bath, and when the hour was up, I turned off the oven and left the cheescake in the oven to cool for a few hours. Absolutely no cracks! I made it a couple of days ahead so the flavors had time to mature, and served it with drizzled caramel and whipped cream, just like in the picture.

If you love chocolate, make a mocha cheesecake with the addition 8 ounces of melted semisweet chocolate stirred into the cheesecake mixture! Heavenly!

This was wonderful... I made homemade caramel sauce- used approximately 1/4 cup in the batter by fillign the crust half way with the batter then dropping in large drops of the caramel sauce. i then took a butter knife and swirled the drop throughout the batter. I repeated this again after adding the remainder of the batter to the shell. I love Starbucks Caramel macchiatos and this sure did take care of my Starbucks fix for the day.

Creamy and smooth, and absolutely decadent with homemade caramel. Make sure to bake the cheesecake in a water bath for that perfect texture. If you can manage not to eat it all at once, the individual slices freeze and defrost really nicely -- just make sure they're wrapped really well in plastic wrap and aluminum foil before freezing. 30-60 minutes out of the freezer, and a divine treat without all the prep!

Wow! If you love cheesecake and you love caramel and coffee flavors then this cheesecake is for you! I mean this is one fabulous dessert! It just doesn't get much better than this. There's just enough coffee flavor in here so it's not overpowering and just subtle enough to really come through and compliment the caramel topping. The richness and creaminess of the cheesecake is well...as one of my guests put it "to die for". I always bring my ingredients to room temperature before mixing and don't overbeat - plus do a waterbath to avoid cracks. I topped it with homemade whipped cream and it was beyond delicious! Thanks for a great recipe Dawn!
