Almond Cheesecake


For 8 people

  • 1 1/2 cup(s) chocolate wafers
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) sweetened, flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup(s) sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) unsalted butter
  • 32 ounce(s) cream cheese
  • 1 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup(s) flaked coconut, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon(s) coconut extract
  • 1 cup(s) sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 cup(s) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup(s) whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap outside of 9-inch spring form pan with foil. Finely grind cookie crumbs, coconut, almonds and sugar in a food processor. Add butter; process until moist crumbs form. Press mixture into bottom and up 1-inch side of pan. Bake crust until set and begins to brown, about 12 minutes. Cool. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees. Using electric mixer beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Mix in coconut and coconut extract. Fold in almonds. Transfer filling to crust. Bake until cake is puffed and no longer moves when pan is shaken, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cool completely on rack. Combine chocolate chips, cream and vanilla extract in small saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until smooth. Cool until glaze begins to thicken but can still be poured, about 30 minutes. Pour glaze over cooled cake; spread evenly. Chill cake overnight.
