Happy birthday to you!

I love you, mom-in-law!

(makes a 6" cake)
Ingredients:
Crust:
1 1/4 cup oreo cookie crumbs
1/3 cup melt unsalted butter

Filling:
450g cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
50g dark chocolate, melted and cool
2 tbsp Kahlua

Directions:
Preheat oven at 350F.

Make the crust by mixing all the crust ingredients together.

Press the mixture onto the bottom of the spring form pan. Bake crust for 10 mins. Set aside to cool.

Turn down oven temperature to 275F.

Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and egg (one at a time). Blend well.

Reserve 1 tbsp melted chocolate, and pull the remaining chocolate and Kahlua in the mixture. Mix well.

Pour the filling over the cooled crust. Tap the pan on counter a few times to release all the air in the batter.

Bake in waterbath for an hour, or until the edge of the cheesecake is puffed but the center is still wobbly and wet looking.

Turn off the oven with the door slightly opened, let the cheesecake sit in the oven to cool, at least an hour.

Remove from water. Chill for overnight.

Drizzle or pipe the reserved melted chocolate on top of the cake and serve.
