  • Heat oven to 325ºF.
  • Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Mix wafer crumbs, 1/2 cup nuts and butter; press onto bottom of prepared pan.
  • Beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Dissolve coffee granules in liqueur; stir into batter. Pour over crust.
  • Bake 45 to 50 min. or until centre is almost set. Meanwhile, bring remaining sugar and water to boil in small saucepan on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling, without stirring, 5 to 7 min. or until syrup is thickened and begins to turn golden brown. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining nuts. Spread onto parchment-covered baking sheet. Cool cheesecake and nut brittle.
  • Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours. Use foil handles to lift cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve. Break nut brittle into 16 pieces; place 1 on top of each cheesecake piece.


Dessert can be part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Toasting Nuts

To easily toast nuts, spread them in single layer in shallow pan. Bake at 350°F for 5 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

How to Crush Wafers

To crush wafers without using a food processor, place wafers in large resealable plastic bag. Press bag to remove excess air before sealing bag. Then crush wafers with rolling pin.

    Very good. I mixed chopped walnuts in with the crust, and drizzled chocolate saunce over the cake (before cutting into squares) to add a nice touch. I tried using brown sugar for the brittle, which did not work (it wouldn't harden!). Overall, great recipie, especially with 1/2 cup of liquor!
