Brief description

This decadent, rich cheesecake recipe comes to us from Talk Story Bookstore in Hanapepe. It is a symphony of flavor, allowing one to savor the sweetness of Kauai.


Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add melted butter and mix thoroughly. Press evenly into a nine-inch springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour batter on top of the crust in the springform pan. Bake at 300 degrees F for about 1 ½ hours, or until set. Cool at room temperature. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.
