St. Patty Whoopie Pies. Imagine for me, if you will, a beautiful, crisp spring day.
The sun is out. The skies are clear with maybe just a little puffy cloud here and there... A nice, refreshing breeze that blows up all the leaves that have fallen off the trees into the air, dancing around you as if trying to prove that there is life after death. That they are still beautiful even though they are broken, brown, and seemingly drained of their bright green pride. You are feeling new. It's one of those days where you can't help but smile, open up the windows, breathe, and fully appreciate the oncoming brighter days. When it comes to my favorite type of days... these have to be up there in my favorite. It's gotta rain before it can shine, right? So, with such a perfect day to take a hold of, I really wanted to make something pretty... and festive! Here's to brighter days for all of us. And yes, I know I totally sounded like a hallmark card.

The first time I spooned a morsel of this delicious cheesecake into my mouth it was one of those idyllic afternoons in the Irish countryside where the sun was shining and you could see hilly green meadows and trees for what seemed like miles.
I like to call these my Merchant & Ivory Irish days. Those are the ones that make all the other dreadfully gray, rainy days disappear as if they never existed in the first place. A pair of wonderful new aquaintances had invited us to their home for an afternoon of tennis and tea. Something that would not ordinarily be on our agenda, but nonetheless, a lovely invitation which couldn’t have been more perfect given the day before us. After saying hello and meeting a handful of lovely new people, I made my way to the banquet and took a slice of what seemed to be a very plain and un-sinister looking tart. Fast forward a few years. Hope this recipe brightens your day as much as it did ours. Enjoy. Slan Abhaile, Imen Irish Curd Cheesecake For the Filling: Food - Recipes : Shortcrust pastry.
