GETTING READY
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

MAKING
3. Using a food processor, grind the ladyfingers, add butter and espresso, pulse for another few seconds.
4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and press well in the bottom using clean hands. Place the pan inside oven to bake at 350F for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool.

6. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on high speed for about 2 minutes until it turns fluffy. Slowly beat in the sugar at high speed until incorporated. Add mascarpone, vanilla and salt.
7. Add the eggs, one at a time, beat after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips( 1/2 cup).
8. Set the springform pan in the roasting pan. Pour the prepared mixture into the baked crust, place the roasting pan in the oven.
9. Pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan to reach halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
10. Bake at 325F for about 1 hour. Allow to cool in the water bath for 15 minutes, transfer to a rack and allow to cool completely. Refrigerate for 6 hours or up to 2 days.

FINALIZING
