    Buster's friend's Note:

    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!)

      Cut chilled butter into flour mix until flour & butter have texture of cornmeal.
    6. 6
      Beat egg yolk with vanilla & add to flour/butter mix - mix well. Dough will be crumbly - that's ok.
    7. 7
      Pat dough onto floor & a bit up the side of the springform pan - go for even distribution.
    8. 8
      Bake 14-16 minutes - until golden brown.
    9. 9
      Remove from oven & cool to room temperature Brush with egg white. Set aside.

      Pour custard into springform pan whose bottom is lined with the baked crust.
    16. 16
      Raise the filled pan 3 to 4 inches above the counter & smack sharply onto counter to release air bubbles, Repeat a couple of times (more if things are loud or stressfull).
    17. 17

      I planned on serving this for Easter, so I made one in advance yesterday as a trial run. Based on the other reviews, I added 3/4 c toasted coconut to the dry crust ingredients and pulsed it in my processor before adding the butter, then the egg/vanilla. I also added 3/4 c shredded coconut to the custard ingredients before adding the egg, then baked as directed. After cooling in the oven, I removed it, whipped up Broiled Coconut Topping Broiled Coconut Topping, and carefully spread on the cheesecake (I did have to soften it a bit more so as not to tear the cake top) and broiled for about 2 minutes. I let it cool on the counter, when it was completely cool I stuck it in the fridge WITHOUT wrapping it. i did steal a few bites...though forced myself to wait until tonight to enjoy a slice. Ohhhh, it is so good! The texture is smooth and rich and velvety...the best cheesecake i have ever made. The coconut in all 3 layers was perfect...the crust on top, the smooth subtle taste in the cake, and the nutty flavor in the crust. I can't wait to serve this on Sunday! Thansk so much for posting!

      Fabulous, delicious cheesecake! The texture is just wonderful - smooth, creamy and perfect! I fancied this up by the addition of an icing on the sides (I used Homemade Icing ) and a pineapple topping (I used Pineapple Cake Filling ). Next time (and there will be a next time) I think I might try a chocolate glaze. Thanks for posting, this is just divine!

      It didn't turn out perfect (my fault for underbaking) but I do agree with Chef Mommie that it needs more coconut flavor. I think it needs some sort of coconut topping. But the texture was great; nice and creamy.
