2 Tbsp.  sugar
3 Tbsp.  butter or margarine, melted
4 pkg.  (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened

1 cup  Sour Cream
1/4 cup  Irish cream liqueur
4  eggs

How to make it:
-HEAT oven to 325°F.
-MIX nuts, 2 Tbsp. sugar and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 min.
-BEAT cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and flour in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add sour cream and liqueur; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
-BAKE 1 hour 5 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate 4 hours.
