Coconut, pineapple and other tropical fruits are commonplace in Eastern Europe these days. So, it's seems natural that they would find their way into a popular Polish dessert -- cheesecake or sernik. Polish cheesecakes are typically made with a shortbread crust as I have done in this Polish Coconut Cheesecake or sernik kokosowy. If you really want to get tropical, you can put well-drained pineapple slices or tidbits under the coconut crumbs that grace the top of this rich cheesecake.
