How to Make Baileys Cheesecake Recipes

Do you know how to make Baileys cheesecake recipes? All my Irish cream recipes are made with Bailey’s Irish Cream As I always state if I go to the trouble and expense of making recipes I want to use the best ingredients possible. (I have learned the hard way!)This is especially true when making things like cheesecakes when you also have the additional expense of the cheese. I have found that Baileys produce the very best flavor in these recipes.

I have learned how to make many Baileys cheesecake recipes. My favorite one starts with a chocolate cookie crust then topped with a creamy chocolate cream cheese filling; this Irish cream add the great taste to this creamy cheese filling. It is made with fifty percent of fresh cream and Irish whiskey. I have heard that some people make their own Irish cream at home by using Irish whiskey and cream plus adding a little coffee and a little chocolate syrup. I am perfectly satisfied with the results that I get by purchasing the Baileys Irish cream.

Learning how to make my Baileys cheesecake recipes has made me famous in my world because of this liqueur. Baileys Irish cream was the first of its kind on the market and it is now world famous for its flavor. A special process is used to prevent the alcohol from separating from the cream. I use Irish cream in many of my recipes; it is wonderful especially in desserts. I love my delicious Baileys cheesecake recipe!

I garnish the following Baileys cheesecake recipe with chocolate curls; it adds a beautiful touch on many desserts. Making chocolate curls is not difficult. Small curls are quite easy the key is having the chocolate bar (or block) at room temperature. Making chocolate curls in a larger size takes a little more time but is not difficult either. Place 1 ½ ounces semisweet chocolate (not the pieces) with 1 teaspoon shortening in a small heavy saucepan. Melt over low while stirring. With a metal spatula spread chocolate evenly over the bottom of a glass baking dish. Let stand until set.

Press a straight edged metal spatula against the dish just inside the chocolate. With gentle steady pressure push the spatula straight forward at a 45 degree angle. Do not touch curls but gently lift out with a skewer. Place on wax paper and use immediately or store in refrigerator. These make beautiful chocolate garnish for desserts. They can be made with milk chocolate or white chocolate.
