A BIT-OF-IRISH CHEESECAKE

what you need

1-1/2 cups finely chopped PLANTERS Pecans
2 Tbsp.  sugar
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
4 pkg.  (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp.  flour
1 cup BREAKSTONE’S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1/4 cup  Irish cream liqueur
4 eggs

Make It

PREHEAT oven to 325°F if using a silver 9-inch springform pan (or to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Mix pecans, 2 Tbsp. sugar and the butter; press firmly onto bottom of pan. Bake 10 min.

BEAT cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and the flour in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add sour cream and liqueur; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour over crust.

BAKE 1 hour 5 min. or until center is almost set. Run small knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

Tips

Size-Wise
This is the perfect dessert for your annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Since it serves 16, one cheesecake goes a long way in feeding the crowd!
Fun Idea
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by garnishing chilled cheesecake with green colored sugar just before serving. Or, sprinkle the green colored sugar over a clover-shaped template placed on top of chilled cheesecake to resemble a shamrock.
Cappuccino Cheesecake in Nut Crust
Prepare cheesecake filling as directed, substituting 1 Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling water for the liqueur.
