Chocolate Cinnamon Cheesecake

I have a bit of an obsession with cheesecake.  In fact, I happen to love cheesecake with a rather unhealthy obsession. It’s a 50/50 household split though, on the rest of the family. But just because a few of them don’t like it as much as I do, doesn’t mean I don’t make them often. I love to try different recipes, put different things both on top and inside the cheesecake. After a lot of experimenting I came up with this very scrumptious Cinnamon Cheesecake with Shaved Chocolate on top.

Chocolate Cinnamon Cheesecake

Chocolate Cinnamon Cheesecake


For the Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs, we use chocolate sometimes
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ¼ cup sugar

For the Filling:

  • 1 lb cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • Chocolate for shaving


The Crust:

  1. Preheat oven 350.
  2. Put the graham crackers, butter and sugar into a food processor and combine. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch pan. Springform works best. Bake for 5-7 minutes.

For the Cheesecake:

  1. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the sugar, and then beat in the eggs until the entire mixture is very smooth. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until firm in the center.
  2. Put in the refrigerator for a couple hours or until completely chilled. Just before serving add shaved chocolate to the top. Enjoy!
