DIRECTIONS

  • Grease a 9 inch spring form pan and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • For crust: Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter, minced coconut, and vanilla. Stir very well, until all incorporated. Press graham cracker mixture into the pan, evenly, all over the bottom and about half way up the side.
  • Cheesecake: Start beating the cream cheese and sugar with a mixer until smooth. Add the vanilla extract, sour cream, and cream of coconut. Mix until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the corn starch and coconut flakes. Make sure that all ingredients are well combined.
  • For topping, combine the coconut flakes (not minced) and cream of coconut. Mix well and set aside.
  • Pour the cheesecake batter into the pan with crust. Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Take the cheesecake out and spread the topping evenly over the top.
  • Bake for another 5 to 7 minutes.
