Recipe: Cheesecake

My original recipe used regular cream cheese, sour cream, butter, and graham cracker crumbs. It was 515 calories per piece (12 pieces per cheesecake) and 36 grams of fat. Low-fat cheese cake is 217 calories a piece and 16 grams of fat.

Low - fat New York Cheesecake

3 whole low fat graham cracker - crushed into crumbs
3 Tbsp splenda or sugar substitute
1 1/2 Tbsps canola oil (it sounded gross to me but it worked and was good)
3 pkg. (8 oz. each) low fat cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups splenda or sugar substitute
3 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup light sour cream

Mix crumbs, 3 Tbsp splenda and oil; press onto bottom of 9-inch greased springform
pan. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes.

Mix cream cheese, rest of splenda, flour and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition, just until blended. Blend in sour cream. Pour over crust.

Bake 1 hour and 5 minutes to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

Makes 12 servings
