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.

I first made this cheesecake in 1993. It is very good. You must refrigerate the cheese cake for 1-2 days before serving to allow the flavors to bloom.

The flavor of this was good but as another reviewer posted, not overly "irish creamy." I added a little more Bailey's to the chocolate glaze. The glaze never got hard though. Of course, maybe it wasn't supposed to and I just assumed it would. I'd make it again because it is easy and a nice dessert.

I thought this was okay. I would not make it again. I was slightly dissapointed by the flavor, not too much of a Irish Cream flavor at all. I made it for St.Patricks day, and no one was particularly impressed. I followed the directions exactly, except I used a chocolate crust.

Very easy recipe and also very delicious. I didn't use all of the chocolate sauce because I thought it would overpower the cake. My guests all gave it 5 stars, thanks Miss Gracie!

Very easy to make,butlooked like a single cake. I like a higher (thicker) cheesecake; maybe a smaller pan. Taste was creamy. The glaze was too thick and overpowered the cheesecake taste. Next time, I'll try an 8" pan, cut the glaze recipe in half and thin it. Beautiful presentation. I put three chocolate leaves on the top - elegant. Thanks.
