While there my friend, Stephanie took me all over sight seeing. Thank goodness I didn't have to drive because they not only drive on the wrong side of the road, but they sit on the wrong side of the car to do it!
One day we took a drive through the Curragh. This is an area that sheep can roam freely. There are cattle guards so they can't really get loose and just flat run off. They are loosely contained I guess you could say.

Do you all like being able to come into this group and find just "Irish" or "St. Patty's Day" themed recipes?
Tell me your thoughts. As I am having many recipes posted in the group that are "NOT" Irish themed. Do you want to keep it just Irish recipes?

Oh My!!! Who wouldn't want this for dessert? Irish Coffee Pudding......check out the recipe below! Yumm
Prep: 15 minutes plus 2 hours chilling time
Yield: 4 servings
This is an easy recipe, but if you want to shortcut it further, use prepared whipped topping from the grocery store. I use heavy cream in the pudding recipe, but whole milk can be substituted. If you want to make this dessert non-alcoholic, omit the whiskey and add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
Pinch of salt
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder or 1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee
3 tablespoons Irish whiskey
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
Whisk the cornstarch, sugar and salt together in a medium saucepan. Stir in the heavy cream. Bring the mixture to a bubble over medium-high heat whisking constantly until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in espresso powder and whiskey.
Divide the pudding evenly between four 6 oz. dessert glasses. Chill for 2 hours.
Whipped cream directions
In a medium bowl, whip heavy cream on medium high speed with an electric mixer. Gradually pour in extra fine sugar, 1 tbsp at a time. Increase speed to high and whip until thick and fluffy. Dollop or pipe whipped cream on top of puddings.
Sprinkle a pinch of instant espresso powder over the whipped cream if desired. Embellish with chocolate gold coins if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
