Tips for Success
- Measure accurately. You’ll get the best results when everything is well-measured.
- Bring the cream cheese to room temperature. Allowing the cream cheese to come to room temperature will make your cheesecake smoother and lump-free.
- Toast the coconut and almonds. While this isn’t an absolute requirement, you’ll get a bolder, richer flavor if you toast these ingredients. Spread them in a single layer on a lined, rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until toasted and fragrant. Be sure to stir occasionally to prevent burning, especially with the coconut.
- Place the springform pan on a lined, rimmed baking sheet. Springform pans can develop little gaps, which can leak. Setting the pan on a baking sheet will catch any potential leaks or spills.
- Don’t skip the extra oven time. While this cheesecake isn’t complicated to make, the method for baking means lots of oven time. Stick to this method for a beautiful, crack-free cheesecake.
This beautiful cheesecake is just the thing for a special occasion when you want your dessert to be a showstopper. It’s rich and creamy and completely drool-worthy!
