Pina Colada Cheesecake


by: payaldhawan

I have been wanting to try out a boozy cheesecake - after going through my recipes I narrowed down to a Margherita Cheesecake. Very happily I go to the bar and yikes.....where is the tequila ? All I see in an empty bottle :( Since I was determined to make something I quickly switched to my second option, a Pina Colada Cheesecake. I love coconut and pineapple so it was not really a bad second choice. Honestly it should have been my first. I used the digestive biscuits to make the base [no coconut macaroons in the house] and added in some coconut instead. For the filling I made the cheesecake using coconut cream, rum, regular whipping cream, pineapple juice and pineapple chunks. And the topping was pineapple. The since I felt it looked very plain I caramalised the pineapple and topped it with the same. All in all it was a good dessert, a true representation of the drink without going overboard on the alcohol. And yes it can be made minus the alcohol also.
