Delicious Coconut Cheesecake!
Mis en place:
Coconut and vanilla wafers with clarified butter. Before I attempted this cake I only knew about the Israeli style vanilla wafers. My wife was able to clear things up.
Cream Cheese and sugar.
Spin the cream o' coconut in the food processor. Here I made the mistake of putting the whole 15 ounce can in instead of the recommended 8 oz. Thus, I got to make some cupcakes too. :)
Mix in sour-cream and cream of coconut.
Prepared mini cheesecake pans.
Toast two at a time in the water bath.
Baby cakes. I ran out of the cookie crust bottom mixture so I put straight crumbled vanilla wafers. It actually gave a nice extra crunch on the bottom!
The extra cream of coconut did not seem to hurt the flavor too much. It may have had a slightly more languid flavor than it was supposed too. These were easy to make and really delicious. One of the fellows who I shared this with at work stated that it was the best cheesecake he had ever had and said: "You should have a blog!"
