Low-Carb Cheesecake
(Brenda - thomas6pack)

The only carbs are in the cream cheese, BUT since it is on the Craving Reducing list I have been having this anytime during the day without apparent problems.

16oz cream cheese
1 packet sugar-free gelatin-your flavor(this may affect some)
2 Tablespoons Splenda
2 cups boiling water
chopped nuts for bottom crust (optional-I dont use-if you do you would have to only eat this at your RM).

Preheat oven to 375.

  1. Lightly spray or oil small 8" baking pan.
  2. If used, place chopped nuts in pan and bake 4-5 min.
  3. Mix sugar free gelatin with boiled water till dissolved.
  4. Add sugar and cheese and mix til smooth.
  5. Pour into prepared pan.
  6. Bake 12-15 min til slightly set around edges, center may be slightly soft yet.
  7. Cool at room temp 15 min then refrigerate at least 1/2 hour til firmed.

OPTIONAL -- Chocolate cheesecake -- add 2 Tablespoons baking cocoa with gelatin and hot water, and 1/2 to 1 Tablespoon more of sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla (or almond) flavor. SUPER delicious -- and cocoa only has 1 carb per tablespoon.
