DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300F; have ready an ungreased 9-inch springform pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the two crust ingredients; mix well.
  • Press in the bottom and up the sides of the pan; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, with electric mixer, beat cream cheese until it is fluffy; slowly beat in sugar, beating until smooth.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Stir in the cream and liqueur until well blended, then pour into the crust-lined springform pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes or until the edges are set, but the centre jiggles ever so slightly when the pan is gently shaken.
  • Turn oven off and leave the oven door open at least four inches; let the cheesecake sit in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the centre now appears set.
  • Remove from oven and place on a wire rack on your counter for one hour, or until completely cooled.
  • Cover, then refrigerate for at least three hours before serving.
  • Just before serving, carefully run a table knife around the edges of the crust to loosen, then carefully remove the sides of the pan.
  • If desired, garnish individual servings with whipped cream and a crumbled or chopped chocolate mint (the kind that has the green stripe).
