Coconut graham cracker crust topped with Key Lime Cheesecake filling and a swirl of whipped cream creates a simple and delicious dessert for every summer occasion.
If you’ve followed My Baking Addiction for awhile, you are well aware of the fact that I have a minor obsession with layered desserts – especially of the mini variety. My friend Glory of the incredible blog, Glorious Treats, recently sent me a copy of her debut cookbook, Glorious Layered Desserts. As you can imagine, it’s pretty much my favorite cookbook – ever.
Not only is Glorious Layered Desserts beautiful, it’s brimming with over 60 amazing desserts for every occasion. From Peach Raspberry Almond Trifle to Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes – there’s truly something for everyone. And as if her delectable recipes weren’t enough, Glory also included tips, tricks, and source information that will make you the layered dessert queen – or king – in no time.
While flipping through Glorious Layered Desserts, I was immediately drawn to Glory’s recipe for Key Lime Coconut Cheesecake. Since I just so happened to have all of the ingredients on hand, I made them the very next day. And then we ate every last crumb. I love Key Lime Pie, but the addition of toasted coconut and cream cheese takes the key lime pie eating experience to a whole new delicious level.
If you want a cookbook on hand for easy, quick desserts that are perfect for last minute barbecues all summer long, this is the book for you!
