Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
This is the perfect dessert to serve at your annual St. Patrick's Day celebration. Since it serves 16, one cheesecake goes a long way in feeding the crowd!
Special Extra
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day by garnishing the chilled cheesecake with a candy shamrock. Use rolling pin to flatten 3 sugar-coated candy spearmint leaves. Cut each into heart shape with small cookie cutter or sharp knife. Arrange on cheesecake as shown in photo to resemble shamrock, using trimmings to make stem.
Cappuccino Cheesecake in Nut Crust
Prepare as directed, substituting 1 Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling water for the liqueur in the cheesecake filling.
