  • For the Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies (about 28 cookies)
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • For the Filling:
  • 4 8-oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp red food coloring


Preparation time 35mins
Cooking time 120mins


Step 1

1. Make the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 F. Mix the cookie crumbs, melted butter, sugar and salt in a bowl. Press into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Put the pan on a baking sheet and bake until set, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

2. Make the filling: Reduce the oven temperature to 325 F. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a stand mixer fitted wit he paddle attachment until smooth, 4-5 minutes. Add the flour, then beat in the eggs one at a time. Transfer 2 cups batter to a bowl; stir in the cocoa powder and food coloring. Pour the red batter into the crust, then pour the white batter on top. Using a spoon, pull some of the red batter up from the bottom of the cake and swirl. Bake until the edges are set but the center is still wobbly, about 1 hour 20 minutes.

3. Turn off the oven but keep the cake inside to cool, 20 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan (don't remove the springform side) then transfer to a rack to cool. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
