The ability to make a good cheesecake should be in any budding cook's repertoire.
Cheese filling - I added three drops of green food coloring for visual effect.
Lime curd - I halved the recipe and used all of what I made for the cheesecake. I would not have minded making the whole recipe and using the excess lime curd for other things, as previously mentioned.
Toasted shaved coconut - toast under a broiler for under five minutes, keeping a close eye on it.
