Ingredients

Crust:

30 caramel and toasted coconut cookies, such as Samoas® (Two 7.5-ounce boxes)

2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil, melted

Cheesecake:

One 1/4-ounce package unflavored gelatin

Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese

1 cup low-fat buttermilk

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Pinch of kosher salt

Topping:

1/4 cup prepared dulce de leche

1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions

  1. For the crust: Put 20 cookies in a resealable plastic bag and crush into fine crumbs (a few larger crumbs are fine) with a rolling pin. Add the coconut oil to the bag, seal and use your hands to mix the oil into the cookies. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate to make a crust. Refrigerate while you make the filling.
  2. For the cheesecake: Sprinkle the gelatin over 2 tablespoons water in a small microwave-safe bowl and set aside to soften, about 5 minutes. Microwave the dissolved gelatin, stirring every 10 seconds, until melted. 
  3. Combine the cream cheese, buttermilk, brown sugar, vanilla, salt and melted gelatin in the food processor and process until smooth and the sugar has dissolved. Rub a little of the mixture between your fingers, if it is still gritty then continue to process. 
  4. Pour the cream cheese mixture into the crust and spread evenly with an offset spatula. Wrap the pan loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the cheesecake layer is set, about 2 hours.
  5. For the topping: Put the chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. When you are ready to assemble the pie, microwave the dulce de leche in a second small microwave-safe bowl until it is loose enough to drizzle, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Microwave the heavy cream in a third small microwave-safe bowl until hot but not boiling, about 30 seconds. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and allow to sit for 1 minute. Stir until completely smooth. The sauce will thicken as it cools slightly. Use a serrated knife to cut the remaining cookies in half cross-wise. Drizzle the chocolate sauce and caramel sauce on the cheesecake. Decorate with the cookies halves.
