    echo echo's Note:

    This was a great hit the couple of times I served it. Other liqueurs could be substituted for Kahlua, though I guess then you'd have to change the name of the recipe. If desired, you can reduce the fat content a little by using low-fat vanilla wafers, replacing half the light cream cheese with nonfat, and using 1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute in place of 1 of the eggs.

      I love cheesecake and I love White Russians, so after reading the first few 5-star reviews for this cheesecake, I'll admit I was expecting great things. Unfortunately, this cheesecake just didn't deliver for me. I could not really taste the "White Russian" flavor, and the coconut just didn't seem to fit the flavor profile. Plus, it didn't quite taste sweet enough. In general, it was rather bland to me; I didn't even want to finish my slice, and I don't usually let cheesecake go to waste. Too bad - I really wanted to like this.

      I make a lot of different cheesecakes and this one is definitely a keeper. I did make a couple of changes. I used full-fat ingredients. For me, it's a texture issue and if I'm eating cheesecake, I don't care how healthy it is. I also used hazelnuts (filberts) instead of pecans because that's what you get in drinks. I put them in the crust and also added them to the coconut topping. It was absolutely scrumptious! Thanks for a great recipe!

      Let me first just say WOW! Awesome cheesecake... made as a dessert for a small group and there wasn't any left over :( It was a hit after a spicy dinner! Loved it. Thank you so much for sharing, this one's going in my "Cheesecakes" cookbook for sure! ~V
