Intro: Sugar Free Cheesecake
Like Cheesecake? Can't have sugar? then try this one. This Recipe was made for my wife and friends who are diabetic and really like my cheesecakes
Step 1: The Ingredients
2 tablespoons Splenda sugar subsitute
2-3 tablespoons melted butter
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
Optional - cinnamon. I sometimes add this to the crust for a background flavor
1 pound cream cheese, softened
1 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups sour cream
Step 2: The Oven
Preheat oven to 375*
Step 3: The Crust
In a small bowl combine Splenda, butter, and graham cracker crumbs. Use a fork or your fingers to mix ingredients together and sprinkle evenly over the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and press the crumbs down lightly. Place into pre-heated oven for 10 minutes.
Step 4: The Filling
In a medium bowl (or mixer bowl) put cream cheese, Splenda, and vanilla. Beat until it's fluffy and free of lumps. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until they just combine, add sour cream and mix until smooth. At this point you can add in any other ingredients (ie. Nuts, chocolate chips, etc...)
Step 5: The Cooking
Pour the batter into the springform pan with the prepared crust, place in pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes. Refrigerate overnite before serving.
This cheescake will keep well in the freezer for about a month.
