Dessert & Baked Goods » Key Lime Cheesecake
Close your eyes and imagine that you are basking in the sun of the Florida Keys. Like the feeling? Acheive a similar utopia when you taste the dessert creation of Colleen Resendes, Pastry Chef at Montione's Biscotti when she brilliantly combines two of the world's best desserts - key lime pie and cheesecake. A simple, tangy cheesecake batter is poured into a crust of graham cracker and toasted coconut crumbs, then baked to a firm, velvety consistency. Pillowy swirls of sweetened whipped cream are piped atop the cake, and it is decoratively dusted with toasted coconut and lime zest. OK, so cheesecake may not be the equivelent of a tropical vacation -- but -- this one is pretty darn close.
