Irish Cream Pie

In my last post, S'mores Cheesecake, I told you that for a family get-together, I made two desserts. Well, S'mores Cheesecake was one of them. The other is today's topic:  Irish Cream Pie, courtesy of good ol' Betty Crocker.

The ingredients say you can use pecans or walnuts. I used pecans, because they're my husband's favorite. Regarding the Irish liqueur, I used Bailey's.

Usually, when I prepare a recipe, I deviate from the recipe at least once. I pretty much stuck with Betty on this one the whole way through, until the very end. In the recipe, it says to top the pie with grated chocolate. I did this, but I also sprinkled pecan bits on top. Trust me, it didn't take anything away from the recipe.

I don't know why so many of my pictures turn out yellow.

Personally, I didn't care for the pie. It wasn't that I did anything wrong making it, I just didn't like the flavor of the Irish liqueur. My husband's opinion was that I had put too much liqueur in, and that it was just a little too strong. But everyone else at the party said it was perfect. So it would be up to you, if you choose to try this one, whether to put less or the same amount of Irish liqueur in.

It turned out lovely, regardless.

In conclusion, I suppose this goes down as a Success. Just because I didn't like it personally doesn't mean it didn't go over well collectively. If I decide to make this recipe again, I'll probably put less Bailey's in.
