This was a repeat request from my family. It was easier than I thought and will continue to make if for the clan.
This was the first cheesecake I made and I was happy with the results. After reading several reviews, I decided to use the crushed mint Oreo crust. I also doubled the Irish Cream (I used Bailey's), it was just enough mint flavor. I baked the cheesecake with a pie pan full of water in the oven for an hour and five minutes. I think it could have used an extra 5 - 10 minutes as the middle of the cake was a softer consistency than the rest. I decorated using the shamrock design and green colored sugar. The green sugar did bleed/run although it only sat on the cake an hour before serving (and cooled overnight in the fridge.) Everyone loved it, even those who claimed they don't like "flavored" cheesecakes. A success!
I thought the Irsh Cream flavor was too subtle and I increased it to a 1/2 cup. I also used Mint Oreos like a previous review did. It was OK, but needed a boost. Other reviews suggested topping with chocolate mint candies. I might try that next time.
Used chocolate mint Oreo's and 1/2 cup Bailey's Irish cream as suggest by another member and it was delicious. Co-workers ate it up and wanted more. All I got were the crumbs on the plate.
Nice flavor and a rich final product. I didn't use the colored sugar, but drizzled chocolate syrup over each piece as I served it. Quite a hit with friends!
One of the most requested cheesecakes that I make
I followed this recipe exactly. The cheesecake was okay but cracked before it was done baking.I made it for a St.Patty's day party and only 1 piece was taken!I will not make this one again.
Nothing goes better with Bailey than chocolate in my mind, so I put my own touches on this recipe. I used crushed Mint Oreo's for the crust. I made the cheese cake exactly as suggested in the recipe but added 1/2 cup Baileys. While cooking I placed a jelly roll pan with water on the rack underneath the cheesecake. Baking took about 15 minutes longer than the recipe called for. Cheesecake came out perfect no cracks! Just before serving I drizzled the top of the cake with half a package of melted Andes mints. It was DELICIOUS! All my guests raved about it!!
I loved this recipe because it has GREEN. i was very delicious. Whoever came up with this recipe u did a good job very good.
it is amazing you should tryit even if you dont like cheesecake!!
