The other day I featured a super decadent dessert recipe in the form of a Bailey's Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cheesecake. I know it was incredibly mean for me to tease you by discussing a super delish cake, so today I am making up for it by giving you another St. Patrick's Day dessert that is quite a bit healthier. Keeping in mind that a healthy dessert is an oxymoron and essentially only exists in the form of plain fruit, this recipe called a cream delight gets its sweetness from honey. While the cheesecake highlighted Bailey's irish cream, this delightful dish highlights the flavor of good old Irish whiskey. For a peek at the recipe,

Cream Delight with Whiskey
From Ireland Information

3/4 cup of raw oatmeal
1/2 cup of sliced almonds
1 1/2 cups of whipping cream
5 tablespoons of honey (for sweetness)
4 tablespoons Irish whiskey
1 teaspoon of lemon juice

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Combine the oatmeal and almonds in a bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the nut/oatmeal mixture on it. Toast for 5 to 10 minutes, mixing repeatedly. Do not let the mixture burn.
  3. Whip the cream until soft peaks form and stir in the honey.
  4. Mix in the whiskey, oats, almonds and lemon juice. Mix well and then pour the mixture into long serving glasses.
  5. Chill and then serve cold.

Serves 6.
