The night before (or at least 8-12 hours), cover the raw cashews with water and let soak. Rinse and drain the cashews. Set aside.For the crust: combine all the ingredients into a food processor and process until it starts to clump (if the dough crumbles too much, you may have to add a little more coconut oil). Don't process the ingredients too much, you still want to see pieces in the mixture and you sure dont want a smooth paste. Line a round 8 or 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper and pour the crust into it. Press the mixture evenly with your fingers or a glass. Set aside.For the cashew layer: combine all the ingredients into a high-speed blender (or quality blender) and mix until completely smooth.
Add a touch of lemon juice or maple syrup if the mixture wont come together well.
Wine Pairing :
- lambrusco dolce
- late harvest riesling
Cheesecake on the menu? Try pairing with Lambrusco Dolce, Late Harvest Riesling, and Sauternes. White dessert wines are a safe pick for cheesecake (without chocolate), but a sweet lambrusco will be so good with classic strawberry cheesecake.
