ST. PATRICKS DAY: Cheesecake Fun

Although cheesecake isn’t a traditional Irish food, none of the traditional Irish desserts pop out at us. So we like to celebrate St. Pat’s with these Green With Envy Cheesecake Bars or this Irish Coffee Cheesecake with Irish whiskey.

But if you’re more inclined to click than bake, consider these cheesecakes from Harry & David.

A cream cheese-based New York style cheesecake recipe, these cheesecakes have a chocolate cookie crust and are covered with dark chocolate mint ganache and festive green swirls with a shamrock adorning the center of the cake.

Send them to friends, and they will indeed feel the luck of the Irish.

Each cheesecake is 5.5 inches in diameter—enough for sensibly small pieces for four people, a large piece for two, or a very big piece for a superfan. Get yours at HarryandDavid.com. The pair of cheesecakes is $29.95.

MORE CAKE FUN

You can add a St. Patrick’s Day theme to any frosted cake.

  • Mix up some basic frosting, homemade or store-bought, and tint it with green food color. Place it in a piping bag or in a plastic storage bag with a corner tip cut off.
  • You don’t have to have the steady hand required to create shamrocks. Squiggles, dots and Jackson Pollack-style drips are just fine.
  • Here’s a recipe for Irish Cream Liqueur Cheesecake—so yummy!
     
    By the way, March 6 is White Chocolate Cheesecake Day, which you could make for St. Pat’s with green kiwi sauce instead of the raspberry sauce in the recipe.

    Here are more of our favorite cheesecake recipes.
