Excellent cheesecake! I made this for our office St. Patty's day pot-luck luncheon, and it was a huge hit! Wouldn't change a thing!

I made this for Christmas day, 2009, It was excellent. I spread a generous layer of Whipped Cream on top and garnished with crushed Skor bars. I might of added a wee bit extra Irish cream.
