Junior's Lemon Coconut Cheesecake
1 cup coconut macaroon cookie crumbs
1 cup butter cookie crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
6 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup Coco Lopez milk
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups fresh shredded coconut; in freezer section
2 cups lemon curd anglaise sauce
fresh mint sprigs
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Combine the cookie crumbs and the butter. Mix well and press into a 10-inch springform pan. In a food processor, with the metal blade, mix the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar and blend. Add the eggs one at a time to thoroughly incorporate into the cheese mixture. Add the coconut milk. Add the flour, salt and vanilla and blend until smooth. Add the coconut and pulse until incorporated. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the cake is set.
Remove from the oven and with a knife loosed the sides from the pan. This will prevent the cake from splitting down the center. Cool the cake completely before cutting. Slice the cheesecake into twelve slices and serve with the Lemon Curd Anglaise, whipped cream and fresh mint sprigs.
