I'm just trying to help Miller increase the Irish dessert selection! I must confess to never having made this one. Prep tome includes 1 1/2 hours of setting time.

I'm sorry this recipe has failed you twice, but I think it is perfectly acceptable to post untried recipes if you admit the fact. This site is like a large recipe book and when you buy a recipe book, there are no real guarantees that every recipe will work-I personally know this from my own experience. I would quit trying to make the recipe and wasting money.

This recipe sounds wonderful and enticing. I have now prepared it twice (a second time to make sure I didn't omit anything, skip steps, etc.), but the cream DOES NOT set. I am assuming it is because of the alcohol in the Irish Mist, which can, under some circumstances, counteract setting... am tinkering with it and will update when I have a version that works. Right now, I am still alittle miffed that I have wasted a lot of ingredients... Irish Mist is rather expensive. My advice: Don;t post anything here unless you have tried it first. Posting untried recipes is a disservice to others.
