This past weekend I needed a dessert recipe for a family Father’s Day picnic. I browsed through my collection of Pinterest recipe pins and decided on this Coconut Cheesecake. It crossed my mind that maybe not everyone would enjoy a coconut cheesecake since not everyone likes coconut flavors. I forged on anyway basically because of my own selfish desires to taste this delicious looking treat.
I feared for no reason since this bugger was devoured completely! I didn’t even get any pictures of the sliced cheesecake, it was that good. It had a velvety smooth texture with just the right amount of coconut flavor. The original recipe did not call for toasting the coconut on top but I opted to toast if for more flavor and some crunch.
Overall this cheesecake recipe was fairly simple. I only had a slight issue finding the Cream Of Coconut but finally found it in the drink aisle at my local Giant Eagle. Be sure to mix that stuff up too cause the can I bought was separated and I didn’t realize it at first since I never used it before.
In short, this coconut cheesecake recipe is a definite keeper. If I had three thumbs, I’d give it all three. It is superb and obviously a crowd pleaser!
