Mmmm Smooth & Creamy Coconut Cheesecake
110 mins (prep 20, cooking 90)

Ok, fine, I am a cheesecake snob. The rich, dense, smooth & unctuous cheesecakes (no flour please) with shortbread crusts are my favorites (no greasy graham cracker). This cake developed for Easter dinner - I yearned for coconut but did not want to disrupt the smoooth texture of cheesecake - it's "sine qua non". Family insisted I post ASAP to keep recipe intact (even though cake is gone - before it could fully develop its flavor!). Recipe is truly easy - I believe this is much easier than flour-based cakes. Hardest thing is making the crust (which isn't that tough)! Please plan to make the day before serving to allow the cake to firm up & develop its flavor (best after 2 days but it won't last that long!)
