Who doesn't love a delicious slice of gourmet cheesecake? Well mix that with coconut and you've got a delicious treat for family and friends.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Beat the cream cheese until smooth, and then beat in ½ cup sugar gradually. Add 1 egg yolk at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the flour, salt and coconut, then the cream and cognac.
Beat the egg whites until stiff; gradually beat in the remaining ¼ cup sugar. Fold into the cheese mixture. Pour into the lined pie plate. Bake 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Open the door and let the cake cool in the oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven to finish cooling.
