How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Butter or spray the bottom of a 10 inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. Cover the outside of the pan in foil.
  • Finely grind the graham crackers and cashews in a food processor. Add the melted butter and 1 tablespoon of lemon zest, and process until the crumbs are moistened.
  • Press the crumb mixture over the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake until the crust is golden, 10-15 minutes. Cool completely.
  • Mix together the sour cream, cream cheese, and sugar. Blend in the lime zest, lime juice, Malibu, and vanilla. Add eggs in one at a time.
  • Pour the cheese mixture over the crust in the pan. Place the pan in a large roasting pan. Create a hot water bath by pouring enough hot water into the roasting pan to come halfway up the sides of the baking pan.
  • Bake until the cheesecake is golden and the center of the cake moves slightly when the pan is gently shaken, about 1 hour.
  • Toast the coconut in a dry skillet over medium heat. Keep stirring it so it doesn’t burn; it will toast up quickly. Sprinkle the toasted coconut on top. Garnish with lime slices.
  • 6. Transfer the cake to a rack; cool 1 hour. Refrigerate until the cheesecake is cold and firm, at least 8 hours (best overnight).
