For a special treat, serve this rich dessert with gourmet coffee. If you prefer a milder liqueur flavor, use a little less Irish cream and add whipping cream or milk to make up the difference.

This is a delicious and decadent cheese cake. There are only two people in our household so I only bake this cake if there are others to share it with because it is addictive. Otherwise we'll end up eating much more than we should.

I think it is great. My wife is Irish, so guess what will be having on St. Pat's Day
