Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecakes in Mini Tart Shells - No Bake
March 26, 2018
"Most cheesecakes are lrg & made w/a homemade crust of some kind. While I'd do that for most occasions entertaining guests, there are times when you want a sml sweet treat for yourself or for you & another couple. That's when sml & simple become your goals & it usually happens for me when we host our best friends for a light dinner meal & games night. A late dessert is a given, usually a cheese/fruit plate w/a small sweet treat. This recipe by Jennifer at bakeorbreakdotcom & the 1 that follows it by Taste of Home are my favorite go-to choices for sml sweet treats. Jennifer wrote the recipe for a lrg cheesecake, but I use it to make her cheesecake in store-bought mini tart shells (10 per pkg) so it was halved. These little treats are divine! ENJOY!"

Using an electric mixer on med speed, beat the cream cheese, sugar, Bailey's Irish Cream & vanilla until well-combined & smooth.
In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the cream on high until soft peaks form.
Fold about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Then gently fold in the remaining whipped cream.
Spoon the cheesecake mixture evenly into the mini tart shells & chill at least 4 hrs. The size of commercial tart shells can vary, so you may have an excess of cheesecake filling you can put in a sml bowl. :-)
TO SERVE: Serve as is or garnish as desired (a sml strawberry w/a mint leaf is nice).
