            Here is a cheesecake that is creamy, indulgent and well worth the short time it takes to make it. I have tried many cheesecakes that are specific for diets. I agree, after one bite, I usually do not eat anymore of it. There is just something that does not taste right to me. However, now I can once again enjoy the cheesecake that I love.

            You can still top this cheesecake with any fruit toppings you enjoy. Keep it low calorie so that you can still stick with the diet. Also, know that the graham cracker crust is optional with this recipe.

I suggest no crust, however, I did include the recipe I use when I include it with the cheesecake. If you choose to have the crust, look for a product that has no sugar if possible, gluten free also helps.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            How can I tell if my cheesecake is completely cooked?

When the outer portion of your cheesecake is set firm, but the inside still slightly jiggles, your cheesecake is done. Keep in mind, when cheesecake is overbaked, it cracks and often gets puffy and odd looking.

            What can I do if my cheesecake top cracks?

If you are eating the cheesecake plain, there is nothing to be done. It is a cosmetic issue. If you use fruit toppings or whipped topping, all you need to do is cover the crack in the cheesecake with one of the chosen toppings.

            How do I keep cheesecake fresh?

Wrap your cheesecake tightly in plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can also freeze cheesecake if you would like. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap a couple of times, then use a layer of aluminum foil to cover it. Mark the date on the top and it can sit in the freezer for up to 6 months.
