Cappuccino Cheesecake

This coffeehouse-inspired cheesecake is light, creamy and not overly sweet. You won’t even have to turn on your oven, because it’s no-bake! The instant espresso powder in this recipe can be found at kitchen specialty shops and online. It gives the cheesecake a more pronounced coffee flavor, but if you don’t have any on hand, instant coffee granules are an acceptable substitute. Whipped cream can be piped on top of the cheesecake in a spiral using a piping bag and a plain 1/2-inch decorator tip, or you can swirl it on using an offset spatula.
