Chocolate Espresso Cheesecake

“I believe I got this from Debbie Fields' TV show. It's the absolute best cheesecake I've ever had, even without the glaze. To respond to a review, I actually made this with a chocolate cookie crust (sorry, I don't have a recipe), so I can't comment on whether the recipe for the crust is good or not. Since the reviewer thought it was horrible, maybe you should try your own chocolate cookie crust instead. I posted the recipe like it was written by Mrs. Fields, but it didn't sound like one I wanted to try.”
