This is very yummy!

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake

 

Crust:

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

3 tablespoons butter, melted

Filling:

3 (8 ounce) packages reduced-fat cream cheese

1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 eggs

1/3 cup reduced fat milk

1/2 cup dulce de leche

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Mix crust ingredients together, and press into a 9-inch springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
  3. Reset oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
  4. Beat cream cheese, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener and flour together until well mixed and smooth. Add vanilla and mix until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix until smooth. Add milk and mix until well blended.
  5. Measure 1/2 cup of the cheesecake batter and pour into a small bowl. Add dulce de leche and stir until well combined.
  6. Pour plain batter over crust. Top with dulce de leche batter by placing rounded spoonfuls over the cheesecake batter and gently swirl into plain batter with the tip of knife or spatula.
  7. Bake 45-55 minutes or until center is almost set. Remove from oven and gently run metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cheesecake (this helps prevent cracking). Let cool 20-25 minutes before covering and placing in the refrigerator. Refrigerate 4- 6 hours or overnight before serving.

Note Graham cracker crumbs can be replaced with crushed vanilla wafers.

 

Exchanges per Serving: 2 Fats, 1 Starch

Where do you find Dulce de Leche in the stores? and does anyone know how many points this works out to be? Not sure how to calculate points yet without having the NI listed. Thanks!

I have a Flan Recipe that uses some cream cheese (any kind!)

 

3/4 cup white sugar (carmelize in skillet and coat pie plate - 10 inch)

 

In Blender add:

 

1 can eagle brand sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated!)

3 eggs whole

3 egg yolks

2 oz cream cheese

14 oz 2% milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

 

Blend all for 7 minutes. Pour contents over carmelized sugar. Place pie pan into a larger pan and add water (1/2 inch deep) into the outer pan. This creates a water bath. Make at 350 degrees until knife tests clean in center about 50-60 minutes.

 

To serve: run knife around edge of pie plate..invert onto larger dish (with sides) let carmelized sugar coat top. Serve with FF cool whip (or not!) this is delicious.

 

This recipe serves 12 for 5 points each.

 

It is easy to substitute FF sweetened condensed milk, FF cream cheese & Non-fat milk. Don't substitute the eggs it just doesn't work right. I don't have the points calculated this way but I think it's 3points per serving. I'll doulbe check!


Be your own best friend every day.
