Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Make Shamrock Decoration
Use a 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter and place it just above the center of the chilled cheesecake. Sprinkle green cake decorating crystals in the cookie cutter. To maintain heart shape, use a light touch when sprinkling crystals. Remove the cookie cutter and place it directly to the right side of the heart you just made, with the bottom points touching. Repeat sprinkling the crystals. Next, make a third and last green heart on the left side of the center heart, again, bottom points touching.
Size Wise
Enjoy a serving of this rich and indulgent cheesecake on a special occasion.
Almond Cherry Cheesecake
Prepare as directed, substituting 2 Tbsp. almond-flavored liqueur for the creme de menthe and using a ready-to-use graham cracker crumb crust. Top with 1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling just before serving.
