Fresh cherry cheesecake

Today I'll let my friends do the talking:

'The best darn cheesecake I ever ate!' - Mr. Boyfriend
'Hmmmmmm...' - The Sister
'Can I have another piece?' - Marjan
'Screw diets, I'm eating the entire cake'- Anonymous
'I even told my mother {fairy godmother of all things related food} about the major awesomeness of this cake!' - Lisa
'It's almost my birthday... For me?' - Babysit kido {3yr}

One of the cool things about this cheesecake is its utterly freshness: the uncooked cherries point out their peak-season taste! 
Another? What about the scrumptious speculoos crust, the subtle layer of jam and the no-bake aspect of this beauty?

Fresh Cherry Cheesecake
inspired by
& wouldn't be the same without the awesome advice of Alex
{you're a cheesecake-hero, dude}

250 g speculoos, crumbled {if not available - but only in that case - use digestive biscuits}
100 g butter, melted
3 T cherry jam
700 g cream cheese 
250 ml coconut milk
180 g icing sugar {3/4 cup}
6 sheets of gelatine
200 g fresh cherries

one: blitz the speculoos in a food processor until it begins to turn to crumbs, then add the butter and whiz again to make the mixture clump.
two: put 'dough' into a form lined with baking paper.
three: using the base of a dry cup, firmly press mixture into bottom of pan.
four: refrigerate for about half an hour.

one: combine cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl.
two: in a small saucepan, combine coconut milk and gelatine; heat over low and stir constantly until gelatine is completely dissolved {!Make sure it doesn't cook!}
three: gradually add the coconut milk mixture to the bowl with cream cheese, keep on stirring constantly.
four: take the crust out of the refrigerator and spread a thin layer of jam evenly on it.
five: spread mixture in cooled crust and smooth with a spatula.
six: gently press the cherries where you want them to be; neatly organised or scattered around... That's up to you.
seven: refrigerate tart at least 1 hour or, covered, up to 1 day.

ps1: of course you can use any kind fruit your heart desires. Why not use raspberries, strawberries or even blueberries?!
ps2. if you like this recipe, you'll sure as hell like Marmushka's blackberry cheesecake! Go check it out! You're nuts if you don't...
