Tiramisu didn't do it for me until I tried this recipe, with its luscious layers of cheesecake and coffee. It's one of my favorite desserts to make this time of year. —Christie Nelson, Taylorville, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2016

"I agree with previous reviewers who didn't give this many stars: the texture is incredibly dense. I think one layer of cookies would be plenty. I understand that because it is a cheesecake, it would be a little more dense, but it was too much. The flavor was good, but because I'm such a coffee lover I guess, I could tell that it was instant coffee and I didn't care for that. I'd make this again, but I'd omit one layer of cookies, and make some strong coffee for the flavoring instead. Also, I used about 2 cups of whipped topping; I don't think 1 cup is enough."

"I made this for a family reunion this weekend and it is delicious. I amped up the coffee a bit in the recipe, but otherwise didn't change a thing. Loved the texture of the cheesecake filling."
