Delious! I made some small changes cause I had to. I used oreo chocolate cream filled cookies cause I can't get plain chocolate wafer cookies over here, I used the whole package and used about half the cream from the cookies, left out the cinnamon and sugar but still used 1/4c of the butter. This gave it a thicker crust and it held together which I wasn't sure that it would. I also was worried that the cooking time was to short, I used a 9inch springform pan and on the bottom rack I did place a waterbath, I have never cooked a cheesecake without a waterbath so was worried about not having a cheesecake in one and I know some people cook their cheesecakes in the water while others say just put a pan of water in the oven when preheating and leave it there while it cooks. I did this one with the pan under, when I cook a cheesecake IN the waterbath I always had trouble with water leaking into the crust, no matter how many times I wrapped the cake pan in foil (I think the pan was crappy replaced it we shall see). I did replace the instant coffee with 1/4c espresso cause I love coffee and I used french vanilla Kahula liqueur. The cooking time was right on! Infact I bet I could of turned off the oven about 5 mins sooner, cause it cracked slightly, I made a chocolate ganache and poured it over the cheesecake and that hid that crack. The coffee flavor was not overpowering at all, almost hard to taste it actually. Loved it and I will make it again!!
