A TASTE of the tropics is as close as your kitchen, thanks to the delectable dessert here! To complement Michele Crawford's exotic party projects, CT's cooks baked a creamy cheesecake on a coconut crust. Then they covered their confection with a homemade pineapple sauce for fresh fruit flavor. A colorful edible orchid tops off this tempting treat that's a breeze to prepare. Just follow the recipe below!
These tempting bites from our Test Kitchen are sure to steal top billing at any summer meal or social. Let family and friends choose from a warm drizzle of caramel and almonds, a dollop of fresh fruit and jam or a chocolate-dipped strawberry to top off their cheesecake. Each topping takes only three or four ingredients and mere minutes to microwave.
