My husband and I love cheesecake. Once, when we were asked to make a dessert for a "traveling basket" for our church, we prepared this luscious layered treat. It looked so good, we couldn't bear to give it away. We ended up contributing another sweet treat instead!

The inside scoop on this tasty treat is the white chocolate center, which makes for an especially rich dessert appropriate for celebrating New Year's. Carol Staniger of Springdale, Arkansas serves it when company calls and at holiday meals.
Inspiring ideas come from many places, and often when we least expect them. I enjoy making cheesecakes for family and friends, and I came up with this recipe after eating ice cream on vacation. Featuring pineapple and coconut, this cheesecake will remind you of a trip to an island paradise. —Ellen Batenhorst, Omaha, Nebraska
"When I have time, I enjoy making cheesecakes," says Benjamin Clark of Warsaw, New York. "In fact, I’ve come up with a couple of my own recipes, and one of them won second prize at a local bake-off contest. I like this fail-proof dessert because it’s so easy to prepare and has just the right mix of ingredients to make it a “special pleasure” for any palate!"
"This is one of my favorite company desserts--it looks magnificent!" writes Karen Grant from Tulare, California. "Another easy way to decorate it is to cover the cheesecake with whipped cream, then add chocolate shavings and maraschino cherries to the top."
