How to Make Coconut Banana Cheesecake with DoubleTree Cookie Crust

DoubleTree Coconut and Banana Cariari Cheesecake

If you’ve ever stayed at a DoubleTree Hotel, you already know the best perk about staying there. It’s not the room service or the WIFI. It’s not the location, no matter where you are. The best perk comes mere moments after checking in when the front desk representative opens a warming drawer and pulls out the signature Double Tree chocolate chip cookies. Many times I’m already wiping the crumbs off my face before I hit the UP button for the elevator.

Now you have the chance to take that cookie to the next level with this Coconut Banana Cheesecake recipe. The recipe comes courtesy of The Double Tree by Hilton Cariari San Jose in Costa Rica. Don’t worry I’ve converted the metric measurements for you lazy infidels.
