This is the BEST cheesecake recipe I have ever made/had! I made this for a St. Patty's Day party and got rave reviews. Everyone wanted the recipe! Soon after, I lost my copy of it and have been searching for it ever since! I am sooo glad to finally find it again.....and I am going to make it again this weekend....yummmmmmm!!!
I made this for our work St. Patrick's Day potluck lunch and it was a big hit--almost completely gone in one sitting! I used more Bailey's than required and it was good flavor, could really taste it but not overpowering. Cake was rich and creamy. I underbaked it a tad because I was so afraid of the top cracking and no way to cover it up since there was no topping other than the green sprinkles. I did wonder why the Shamrock pattern was not posted? I just sprinkled the green sugar all over but would try the pattern next time, if I could find it. The most expensive part of the dish were the pecans for the crust and I think they could be easily substituted with either graham crackers or chocolate cookies. Would definitely make again, it's that good!
This cheesecake was very good. I did find that it needed to bake more than the recipe calls for, then you definitely need to chill it in the fridge like it says. I found adding an extra 15 minutes cook time to work out well.
Can the Irish Cream be substituted with Kahlua, or would that completely change the flavor?
I really would like to know why the person did not tell how to get the shamock on top of the cake. Is it green candy speckles or what. I would like to know.
I tested it with a knife to see if it was done and it cracked. So I sprinkled it with coarsely chopped peacans. It looked professional with that garnish. The people who ate the cake said it was wonderful and had a sophisticated flavor.
Great recipe... I used Baileys Irish cream in the first recipe then used a rum cream in the second.. the flavour was better in the second... Tasted better after 3 days in the fridge!!!
Cheesecake was good, but the Irish Cream flavor was very mild. So you may want to have sauce and cream to put on it.
this recipe does not work well if you substitute fat free cream cheese and use splenda instead of sugar
