We had a work gift exchange that involved "stealing" others gifts. Well, after all was said and done, I ended up with a huge bottle of Irish Cream Liqueur. This is great, but not if you don't drink like me! LOL!!! :-) I said to a few girls that I would find some yummy recipes that include Irish Cream and share it with them. Here is one that I ran across on the www.ifood.tv website. It appears to be slightly different from the other ones posted. The picture on the site looks incredible! ENJOY!
- Mix together cracker crumbs, 3 tablespoons sugar and melted butter. Press this crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with 2 3/4 inch high sides. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees) until brown - about 8 minutes. Transfer crust to rack and cool. Maintain oven temperature.
- Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and vanilla in large bowl until blended. Beat in 1 cup sour cream and liqueur. Add eggs one at a time, beating just until combined. Pour filling over crust in pan. Bake until edges are puffed, and center no longer moves when pan is shaken. Transfer cheesecake to rack, and cool 10 minutes. Maintain oven temperature.
- Mix 1 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl until smooth. Press down edges of cheesecake, and spread mixture on top. Bake 10 minutes. Transfer cheesecake to rack and cool. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Release pan from cheesecake. Cut and serve.
