Cappuccino Walnut Cheesecake

1 cup finely chopped walnuts (I used pecans! )
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
32 oz. cream cheese, softened (4-8oz. pkg.)
2 tablespoons flour
4 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup strongly brewed espresso (bean optional)
1 teaspoon instant coffee

Topping For Cheesecake:
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup espresso
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
sugar to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine walnuts, 2 tbsp. sugar, and butter in a bowl and mix well. Pour
mixture into a 9-inch spring form pan and press onto bottom. Set aside.
3. In a food processor (I used a blender) combine cream cheese and the rest of the cup of sugar. Mix until light and fluffy and completely combined.
4. Add flour and eggs one at a time.
5. Add sour cream and cinnamon.
6. Dissolve the instant coffee into the espresso and then add to cream cheese mixture.
7. Pour into pan and bake approximately 1 hour. Some ovens may require 10-15 extra minutes. Shake gently to test. Cake will be firm when done and top will be lightly browned. Cool completely.

1. Heat all ingredients and stir until melted.
2. Drizzle topping over cooled cheesecake.
3. Chill cheesecake before serving.
