Why I Love This Recipe

This rich, creamy cheesecake with crème de menthe and mint candies will impress everyone.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
Aerosol Whipped Heavy Cream, optional


Heat oven to 375°F.


Stir together all crust ingredients in large bowl until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto bottom and 1 inch up side of lightly greased 9-inch springform pan; set aside.


Combine sugar and cream cheese in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.

Continue beating, adding eggs one at a time, until well mixed. (DO NOT OVER BEAT.)
