This recipe has been on the menu at the Hali'imaile General Store Restaurant in Maui since almost day one and is their signature dish. It is very popular there. It also graced the cover of Food and Wine magazine once! You will need to make the white chocolate ganache a day in advance - this is not included in the cook time. The baked cheesecake will need to rest in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours, also not included in the cook time. Also, you will need to have a 10 inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom. It's definitley a specialized recipe, but totally worth it! Just make sure you read the recipe through so you know what to expect. Note: the recipe calls for decorating the cheesecake with pineapple shortbread cookies, which I am omitting. I think it's perfect on its own.
