- 15 graham crackers, crushed
- 2 tbsp. butter, melted
- 4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
- 1½ cup white sugar
- ¾ cup Baileys® Original Irish Cream
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Grease a 9 inch springform pan.
- In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan.
- In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in Baileys Original Irish Cream, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth.
- Pour filling into prepared crust. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
