    miss gracie's Note:

    This is one of my all-time favorite cheesecake recipes, and I am a cheesecake lover! It was originally published in Bon Appetit about 10 years ago. It is simple, yet looks and tastes fabulous. Perfect for a holiday dessert since it can be made ahead of time. I see there are several recipes in Zaar for Bailey's Irish Cream that could be used in this recipe.

      Miss Gracie - this was terrific! The texture was really silky and - well - I'll be honest. I didn't expect to like it. I was making it and then realized that there were only 2 eggs in the recipe. I thought that just couldn't be right. I ALMOST added another egg because I thought this cake would turn out like a huge block of cream cheese. But I restrained myself because I already had made 2 changes to the recipe; I didn't want to change it totally (my changes: omitted the sour cream because I don't like that taste in my cheesecakes - I used heavy cream instead. The other change was structural - I cut the recipe in half and made a 6" cake instead of a whole one since my family is so small). I was also nervous about not baking it in a water bath, which I always do with cheesecakes, but I thought I'd try it and see. It was beautiful when I took it out of the oven, not a single blemish or crack. And the taste and texture are WONDERFUL!!! Truly, it has a great texture - very silky, almost like a really fine custard. Was I surprised, and pleased! Once again, DH said "Give that woman 5 stars - this is great" and I may have to re-tool some of my own cheesecake formulas to try and come up with this texture. Thank you very, very much! We love it.

      I couldn't appreciate the flavor of the Bailey's but overall this is a good cheesecake.

      Thanks for such a great recipe. I'm not a cheesecake expert, but this was very good. This set up so well, and I had no problems with this recipe. I was short on time and only let it set up for about 3 1/2 hours. It wasn't completely set, but it was still fine, and the flavor was still great. The only thing, like other reviewers said, was that it wasn't overly Irish creamish. I put 2 T in the ganache and that helped, but it still wasn't too strong.
