Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecake

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This weekend I had a little mini dinner party for my family to celebrate St. Patricks. (It was mini, because two people couldn't come). There was guinness, there was harp, there were potatoes, and there was Bailey's Cheesecake.

YUM. This cheesecake was simple to make and absolutely delicious. But, beware. You have to like Baileys to like this cheesecake, because it tastes just like it! But it's very good. Very rich and very smooth and silky.

The crust was a little different... it was oreo cookies and toasted pecans. But the crust might have been one of my favorite parts.

Everytime I make a cheesecake, I'm reminded of how delicious homemade cheesecakes are, and how simple they are to make! This beats any Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake!


Baileys Cheesecake Recipe

(I didn't make the coffee cream topping or add the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the top of the cake. I did add the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the bottom of the cake before I poured the filling in, though).
