I’m not into gadgets, but my mini-cheesecake pan comes in handy for lots of desserts, including this one (it comes in two sizes). I first tasted this when a friend made a pareve version. The top and bottom were amazing, but I knew the middle layer could be totally transformed if it were milchig. And it was. So now I never bother making it pareve. With a heavenly crust, these dairy mousses are perfect together.
Combine butter with remaining crust ingredients and press into the bottom of a baking pan or mini-cheesecake pan (I used the Chicago Metallic three-inch mini cheesecake pan with removable bottom. You can also use a 9- x 13-inch pan).
Melt butter together with coconut flakes.
Pour over frozen vanilla cheese mousse.
