Let's Make It
1
Heat oven to 325°F.
2
Melt 5 Tbsp. butter; set aside. Use pulsing action of food processor to process 2 matzo sheets, and 1/2 cup each nuts and sugar until matzo sheets are finely crushed. Add melted butter; pulse just until blended. Press crumb mixture onto bottom and 1/2 inch up side of 9-inch springform pan.
3
Bake 12 min. or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup of the remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.
4
Pour cream cheese mixture over crust. Bake 55 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim.
5
Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours. Meanwhile, cover rimmed baking sheet with foil, then sheet of parchment. Place remaining matzo sheet on prepared baking sheet.
6
Bring remaining 1/4 cup each butter and sugar to boil in small saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 min. Pour over matzo; spread until matzo is completely covered with sugar glaze. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup nuts. Bake 10 min.; cool completely.

Break matzo sheet into pieces as shown in photo; place on cheesecake just before serving.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Substitute
Margarine works well for the crust, but the almond toffee only works with butter.
Tip 2
Substitute
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
Tip 3
Note
If any of the sugar glaze or nuts slide off the matzo sheet while it is baking, carefully use a knife to scrape the glaze or nuts off the baking sheet to return it to the matzo sheet.
