Ingredients

  • - For the Crust
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • - For the Filling
  • 24 ounces (3 packages) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • - For the Topping (optional)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chocolate shavings or cocoa powder for garnish
  • Whipped cream for garnish

Instructions

Preparing the Crust
1
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
2
Combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a medium bowl until well mixed. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared springform pan to form the crust.
3
Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and let it cool while you prepare the filling.
Making the Filling
1
Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F (160°C).
2
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and flour together until smooth and creamy. Add the Bailey's Irish Cream and vanilla extract, and mix well.
3
Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Be careful not to overmix.
4
Pour the filling over the prepared crust in the springform pan.
5
Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until the center is almost set but still slightly jiggly. The edges should be set.
Adding the Topping (optional)
1
Mix the sour cream, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Carefully spread over the top of the cheesecake.
2
Return the cheesecake to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Cooling and Garnishing
1
Remove the cheesecake from the oven and run a knife around the edges to loosen it from the pan. This helps to prevent cracking as it cools.
2
Allow the cheesecake to cool completely at room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
3
Before serving, garnish with chocolate shavings, cocoa powder, and/or whipped cream if desired.
