BHG Coconut-Macaroon Cheesecake

by on April 17, 2009 · 18 comments

It rained all morning here in Austin – perfect baking weather. But I am sorry to admit I spent the whole morning (seriously) glued to my computer reading about beach vacations in L.A. I wanted to bake, but wasn’t motivated.

My friends at Better Homes & Gardens must have sensed something was wrong, because they sent  an email with links to some of their more spring-like recipes. This one in particular caught my eye. It’s a coconut macaroon cheesecake. Is coconut in this year, or what?

Omg, that looks like such a great idea for a cheesecake variation.

I just made a coconut lime cake for my friend’s b-day yesterday. There has been a lot of coconutty things around lately. ;) That cheesecake looks killer!

I love coconut cake, but they start putting certain combinations with the coconut and it start smelling like suntan lotion to me. :-(

Vacations on the beach in L.A.? Count me in. Since I won’t be going to Italy anytime soon, California will have to do.

coconut is SO in this year! i can’t get enough!

If you are going to LA I’m going to scream. First Italy now LA, my hometown? Wahhhhh, not fair.
You know what I am always on the lookout for? I had this banana cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory and it knocked my socks off. I want to find a decent clone-like recipe for it. Next on my list is a coconut cheesecake recipe.

That cheesecake looks incredible. I want it. Now.

I noticed in the ‘Mix it up with Betty Crocker’ competition that ALL of the winners had coconut–I felt a responsibility to vote in it, given you highlighted it in your blog, but I couldn’t because I don’t like coconut! I guess it is a trend, though!

Hi Everyone!

Steph, I thought this one was interesting too. It’s a coconut cream pie, cheesecake and macaroon all in one!

Megan and Dawn, I collect air miles and hotel points like a maniac.

Jasmine, that is good to hear! I should put a note that you made it and it was the hit of the party. I guess that’s why BHG sent me the photo.

oh my! that looks so good!
