   1 1/2 lb Cream cheese; softened
     1/2 c  Dark honey
       3    Eggs
       1 ts Vanilla extract
       3 tb All-purpose flour, sifted
       1 tb Cornstarch
     1/2 c  Heavy cream
     1/2 ts Ground cloves
       1 ts Allspice
       1 tb Instant freeze-dried
            -coffee, dissolved in
       1 ts -hot water
   1 1/2 ts Powdered sugar (optional)
       1 c  Heavy cream, whipped
            -(optional)
  
   In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, honey, and eggs until very smooth.
   Add the vanilla, flour and cornstarch and continue to beat until very
   smooth. Add the heavy cream, cloves, and allspice and beat well. Add the
   coffee paste to the cheese mixture and beat until very smooth. Pour into a
   well-buttered 9 springform pan and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for
   1 hour. When done, turn off the oven and allow the cake to remain in the
   closed oven for 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool
   completely. Carefully remove the sides of the springform pan and transfer
   the cake to a serving dish. If desired, decorate the top of the cake with
   the powdered sugar or whipped cream and serve.
   
   COMMENTS: The very moist and creamy filling is flavored with dark honey,
   ground cloves, allspice, and freeze-dried coffee to make this a decidedly
   special cheesecake. Topped with powdered sugar or whipped cream, it is a
   delectable choice for special occasions.
