    I made this cheesecake for my son's 29th birthday. Although, it is rated at the intermediate level, I felt it was quite easy to put together.

    AWESOME!!!!

    Mystie from

    I made this for a dinner party, and everyone thought it came from "the fancy French bakery" in town!!! I was very flattered, but the recipe was to be praised. Usually I don't follow a recipe to the letter, but this time I did. EXCELLENT! I was told this was a keeper! I decorated it with a little whipped cream and used the chocolate lace and leaves that are already pre-made at the store in the bakery isle. You have to try this recipe!

    Easier than Intermediate level

    Arlene Case from Baldwinsville, NY

    Results were great...I used Bailey's Irish Creme and a 10 inch glass deep pie dish. Also, using regular semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the the mint ones.

    Yummy cheesecake

    J FLANAGAN from KANSAS CITY, MO

    This was very good. I would use only the minimum suggested Irish Cream next time. I added more and found the flavor a bit too strong for me. My husband liked it, though.

    Another Great Crowd Pleaser

    Lena Steele from MATAMORAS, PA

    Once again I have made a recipe which I have downloaded on line. My dinner party was complete with this cheesecake. My guest are telling me I should make Cheesecakes for a living because they are so wonderful. I have to advise them I am only as good as the Recipe. As always it was easy to make when you plan ahead and have everything ready and BAM . It's in the oven.

    Superb Meal Ending

    robert kenny from Novato California

    I made this to cap off a St Patrick's Day dinner, and recieved nothing but positive reviews. It was absolutely delicious. The Irish Creme gives it that extra little shot of flavor. Rich? Yes, but something that simply cannot be passed up at dessert time.

  •  Star(s)

    Score one for the Irish!

    Hans van der Laan from Calgary, Alberta, Canada

    This is a great, easy recipe, and a hit in our family. I have tried both the Irish cream and the Mocha versions, and they are equally good. This freezes well also, provided there are pieces leftover!

    Wasn't enough to go around 5 adults and two kids...Everyone had seconds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best Cheesecake ever!!!!!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Yes, it is.

    Jo Vanderwolf from Lillooet, BC

    This is a great recipe to make if you want to impress someone with your baking skills. It looks like you slaved over it, yet it is very simple. The texture is incredible! You won't be able to stop with one piece.
