st. patrick’s day
Here’s the benefit to being “never on time,” folks: you can still be punctual every once in a while!
I made this dreamy, creamy Lucky Mint Cheesecake last year for dessert to our Irish fare, and I never, ever posted about it. Oh sure, I meant to – I really did! I thought it would be a nice touch even around the holidays (where instead, I made a different version of cheesecake – a pepperminty one), but I didn’t post this one then…
After all, it has shamrocks.
But trust me when I tell you that this cheesecake… it’s better than so many things. It’s better than a Peppermint Patty straight from the fridge (with or without the Charlie Brown) and chased by a glass of milk. It’s better than a stick of Doublemint gum with a dollop of cottage cheese at the same time.
Wait. That last one might not actually be any good at all… *shakes head*
This is heaven. Sweetened cheesecake, lightly minted, resting on a rich layer of cold ganache, and wrapped in a chocolate cookie crust. I’m pretty sure that IS in the Bible somewhere, right?
