  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbs butter
  • 1/4 tsp non-flavored gelatin


  • 4 1/2 bricks room temp cream cheese
  • 1 2/3 cup sugar
  • 5 lg eggs room temp
  • 1 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1 Tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet Choc chips

Coffee Cream:

  • 1/2 pint chilled whipping cream
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp instant coffee powder


For Crust:

  • Preheat oven to 325. Coat 9 inch spring form pan with nonstick vegetable
  • Oil spray. Wrap outside of pan with a double of aluminum foil. In a bowl
  • combine crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Press mixture into bottom and up sides of pan. Bake until light brown, about 7 minutes. Maintain oven temp at 325 F
  • Sprinkle Choc chips over crust or put in batter

For Filling:

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smoothe. Gradually mix in sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Blend in Baileys and vanilla. Spoon filling into
  • Prepared crust. Bake until puffed and springy in center and golden brown, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Cool completely before removing springform.


  • For best results bake the cheesecake in a Bain Marie ( a water bath).
  • Place the wrapped springform in a roasting pan. Fill the pan with hot water
  • until the level reaches 3/4 of the way up the side of the springform pan. This will
  • keep the cheesecake moist and will help prevent the cake from falling in
  • the center.

For Cream:

  • Beat cream, sugar, and coffee powder until peaks form. Spread mixture over cooled cake. Garnish cheesecake with chocolate curls.
