Kraft Kitchen Tips!
To add a shamrock design, sprinkle the green coloured sugar over a clover leaf-shaped stencil placed on top of the chilled cheesecake.
How to Avoid Cracked Cheesecakes
After adding the eggs, be careful not to overbeat the batter since this can cause the baked cheesecake to crack.
Add 1/4 cup boiling water to 1 Tbsp. Maxwell House Instant Coffee Original Roast and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon; stir until dissolved. Use instead of the liqueur.
