This Easter egg cheesecake combines a crunchy biscuit base with a vibrant, creamy filling, topped with toasted coconut and Cadbury Eggs. It's the perfect festive dessert for your spring celebrations.


  • Crust
  • 1 package of sugar cookie dough
  • Filling
  • 16 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • Pink Food Dye
  • Blue Food Dye
  • Yellow Food Dye
  • Green Food Dye
  • Purple Food Dye
  • Toppings
  • Toasted Coconut
  • Cadbury Eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a springform pan with parchment paper.
  2. Press the sugar cookie dough into the bottom of the pan, creating an even layer of dough for the crust. Set aside while you create the filling.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth.
  4. Add the white sugar, salt and flour to the cream cheese. Blend again until combined.
  5. Add each egg to the mixture one at a time, mixing in between each addition. On the addition of the last egg, also add the vanilla extract and sour cream before mixing one last time until smooth.
  6. Separate this mixture into 4 bowls. Place a small drop of food dye of each color into each bowl. The goal is to create pastel colored layers for the Easter theme. Mix together each color in each bowl and  add more if needed to create a better pastel color. 
  7. Take the first colored cheesecake bowl and pour onto the cookie dough base. Spread evenly.
  8. Then gently pour the second color on top of the first, spreading again. Repeat with the rest of the colors. It is ok if the pastel colors mix slightly during this process.
  9. Once the last layer of colored cheesecake filling is added, place this in the oven and bake for 60 minutes. The cheesecake top should be puffy, with the edges set and center still a bit jiggly. 
  10. Turn off the oven and open the oven door, allowing it to finish baking and cooling inside.
  11. Once the cheesecake is done, cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour to chill.
  12. Place toasted shredded coconut around the edges of the cheesecake along with cadbury eggs for garnish.
  13. Slice, serve and enjoy!
