    1 1/2 lb Creamed cottage cheese
    1 c Granulated sugar
    1 1/2 ts Coconut extract
    4 Eggs

    1 c Heavy cream

    1 1/2 c Sour cream
    1 tb Granulated sugar

    Pan: 10-inch springform pan Crust: In a medium-size

    springform pan inside of a larger pan containing 1
    inch of water and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven
    for 1-1/4 hours. Transfer the cake to a wire rack and
    allow to cool for 30 minutes.

    Topping: In a small mixing bowl, combine the sour
    cream, sugar, and shredded coconut and beat until
    smooth. Spread the mixture evenly over the top of the
    cake and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5

    completely. Remove the sides of the springform pan and
    decorate the top of the cake with a cherry.
    Refrigerate overnight. Remove the cake from the
    refrigerator at least 2 hours before serving.
