  • You can find the recipe for Almond Cream Cheese here: https://koshereveryday.com/almond-cream-cheese-kosher-for-passover/
  • If you don't have a springform pan you can use a deep pie dish.
  • If you'd like a thinner crust use 1/2-3/4 of the can of macaroons.
  • You can also make this a plain vanilla Almond Cream Cheesecake. Simply omit the chocolate from the recipe.
  • You can also top this cheesecake with your favorite fruits/berries.
  • You can make a completely chocolate Almond Cream Cheesecake by using 3/4 cup melted chocolate chips instead of just 1/4 cup.
  • It's important not to spray or grease the sides of the pan as it will hamper the rising of the cake.
