    acerast's Note:

    This is a wonderfully, creamy cheesecake that I make for friends and family. Folks like it so well that a single cheesecake raised $32.00 at a fundraiser/auction for my children's school. I have made this successfully with low-fat cream cheese and sour cream. (Many of you have had problems with cracks in the top of the cheesecake and have given wonderful instructions as to how to avoid this. I have included your info in the instructions and really appreciate you making this recipe even better - Thanks :)

      I made this cheesecake for a St Patrick's Day themed party. I was a little unsure at first about not looking in the oven while it was cooking/cooling. But it was well worth the self restraint. The texture and flavor were incredible. I will be making this one again (and again)

      You could also modify the crust by using the Nabisco chocolate wafers for the crust (about 2 1/4 cups), with the addition of 1 tbsp. of sugar (for sweetness) and also the butter.
      To amp up the Irish creme flavor, try 3/4 to 1 cup Irish creme for an enhanced flavor.

      Very good, but the "Irish Cream" flavor was very faint.
