In response to the Kitchen Chef, all cheesecakes need to be baked in a water bath to prevent cracking. The dry heat is what causes the cracking. I've been making all sorts of cheesecakes for over 35 years and not a one has cracked using this method.
Best ever cheesecake.
I made 2 of these cheesecakes and used a 1/2 of cup like everyone suggested and baked it for a few minutes longer & 1 i used baileys coffee creamer non alcoholic. Both of them cracked and look terrible. I know how to cook and bake so out of all these ratings my guess would be no one is mentioning the cracks in the cake. I just wonder if they taste as bad as they look. I'm going to make one more and see if the results get better.
I made this for St. Patrick's Day. What a hit it was! The women were asking for the recipe. I used the oreo mint cookies and 1/2 cup of Irish cream as suggested. I baked it for an additional 10 minutes (5 min. at a time).
Served on St. Patrick's Day to rave reviews, including "best cheesecake ever" from a guest. I doubled the Bailey's as suggested and baked 5-8 minutes longer. The creamy texture of the cake was fantastic. Loved the pecan crust! Will make this again trying different liqueurs.
I made this last year and it was wonderful! My daughter's boyfriend wanted this as his Christmas present. Which he got! I did use the mint Oreo's and increased the Bailey's to 1/2 cup. Total Yum!!!!
I made a couple of changes based on the reviews I read and OMG was it a hit!! I used mint oreos and just the melted butter for the crust and increased the Irish Cream to 1/2 cup. I also put it in a 10' pan instead of the 9' and baked it for 1 hour 10 minutes. All I can say is there was very little left and this will definitely be a repeat at least once a year. With the mint flavor, it could also be used during the Christmas holidays.
GREAT As good as The Cheesecake Factory. My daughter asked for me to make for her B'day. Gets better with a little time
A nice cheesecake but I couldn't taste the Irish cream liqeur so next time I think I'll add some Irish cream flavoring.
I have made this twice, well actually two at the same was wonderful! Only problem was it cracked just a bit, but I used homemade whipping cream to cover and fill and then did the shamrock! No one knew what the problem was. Loved it
