Love this recipe but I''''m diabetic. Here are adj
This is a wonderful recipe but, alas, I am diabetic so I made a few adjustments and it turned out quite well. I substituted Murray's brand sugar free oreo-style cookies for the crust, splenda for the sugar (I only used half a cup ~ 1/4 cp for the cream cheese mixture and 1/4 cp for the sour cream topping). I used the sugar-free version of the powdered creamer, substituted neufchatel cheese for the full fat variety and low fat sour cream for the regular sour cream. Please don't try the no fat varieties of cream cheese or sour cream, they don't bake well ~ at all. The resulting cheesecake wasn't as wonderful as the original but I can eat it without using up all my carbs for the day w/ one slice. Many thanks to the creator of this recipe. I would never have come up with a version I could enjoy without your original.
You can use ANY flavor of CoffeeMate to make a won
As a member of the CoffeeMate Brew Crew, I love using CoffeeMate creamer in cheesecake! This is a delicious recipe! I use all kinds of CoffeeMate flavored creamers to make an almost endless number of variations. If you want to use the liquid CoffeeMate Creamer, use 3/4 cup of liquid and 1 Tbs. of flour whisked into it before adding to the rest of the recipe. My all-time favorite for cheesecake is using CoffeeMate Creme Brulee liquid creamer.
I used Butternut cookies for the base instead, and wasn't able to get the creamer powder so used the small UHT creamers of the Nestle French Vanilla coffee. It was a great success and I've had the people at my dinner party all ask me for the recipe.
