Ingredients

  • CRUST

  • 1

    cup graham cracker crumbs

  • cup macadamia nuts, chopped

  • 3

    tablespoons sugar

  • cup melted butter

  • FILLING

  • 16

    ounces cream cheese, softened

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • ½

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2

    eggs

  • ½

    cup chopped white chocolate

  • ½

    cup chopped macadamia nuts

  • ½

    cup chopped white chocolate

Directions

For the Crust: Mix the graham cracker crumbs, macadamia nuts, sugar, and melted butter in a bowl. Press onto the bottom and up the side of a 9 inch spring-form pan. For the Filling: Beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl at medium speed until cream and well blended. Add the eggs and beat well. Stir in 1/2 cup white chocolate. Pour into the prepared crust. Sprinkle with the macadamia nuts and 1/2 cup white chocolate over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. To reduce the risk of fire, place a piece of aluminum foil or a baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping butter. Cool on a wire rack. Chill for at least 3 hours before removing from the pan. Remove the side of the pan and cut into slices to serve. Yield: 12 servings
