In honor of National Cheesecake Day, here is one of my favorite Cheesecake recipe for you!

Baileys Cheesecake

  • •7 Tbls. sugar
  • •3 8oz. pkgs. cream cheese, room temperature

  • •2 large eggs
  • •1/4 cup plus 2 Tbls. sour cream
  • •1/4 cup plus 2 Tbls. Bailey's Original Irish Cream liqueur
  • •1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • GLACE':

  • •9 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • •1/2 cup whipping cream
  • •Shaved chocolate curls
  •  ( white chocolate ones too)

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Finely grind graham crackers in processor. Add butter and blend until combined. Press crust mixture onto bottom [not sides] of a 9 inch diameter springform pan. Bake crust until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Transfer crust to cooling rack and maintain oven temperature.
    • •Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in flour Add eggs one at a time, beating just until combined. Mix in remaining ingredients.
    • •Pour filling into crust [will not fill the pan]. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees and then lower heat to 250 degrees and bake for 30 more minutes. Run sharp knife around pan sides to loosen cake. Cool. Chill overnight.
    • •Bring cream to a simmer in a heavy medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Add chopped chocolate and stir until melted and smooth. Cool glace' to lukewarm.
    • •Release pan sides from cheesecake. Place cheesecake on rack placed over a cookie sheet. Pour glace' over cheesecake, spreading with a spatula to cover top and sides and allowing excess to drip on to cookie sheet. Refrigerate until glace' sets, about 30 minutes. Transfer cheesecake to platter and garnish with chocolate curls.
    • ENJOY!!
