Tiramisu Cheesecake


  • 1-½ cup Gingersnap Cookie Crumbs
  • ¼ cups Butter, Melted
  • 2 Tablespoons Unflavored Gelatin
  • 2 cups Heavy Cream, Divided Use
  • 4 whole Large Egg Yolks
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅔ cups Sugar
  • 1 pound, 1-⅔ ounces, weight Mascarpone Cheese
  • ½ cups Brewed Espresso, Cooled, Divided Use
  • 12 pieces Ladyfingers
  • ¼ cups Cocoa Powder


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan. Line the bottom and side of the pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Make the crust by mixing all of the crust ingredients together with a fork. Press the mixture onto the bottom of the springform pan. Bake crust for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Put 1/4 cup of cream in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over it. Allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat the remaining heavy cream until stiff peak forms. Keep in refrigerator for later use.
  • Put egg yolks, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl over a pot of simmering water. Use an electric hand mixer to beat constantly until the sugar has completely dissolved and the egg yolks are a pale yellow color. Remove from heat. Whisk in the gelatin mixture.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat mascarpone on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  • With the mixer running, slowly add the yolk and gelatin mixture. Scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl occasionally. Mix in 1/4 cup of cooled espresso until combined. Fold in the chilled whipped cream.
  • Pour half of the cheese mixture over the cooled crust.
  • Soak the ladyfingers, one at a time, in the remaining espresso for a few seconds each. Lay the soaked ladyfingers over the cheese mixture. Pour remaining cheese mixture over top of the ladyfingers. Level the top with an offset spatula.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Top with sifted cocoa powder before serving.
