This is my husbands favorite cheesecake. Actually my entire family really likes it because it is not so sweet. Thank you for posting...I just had an old copy out of a magazine and it was looking pretty worn. Making this for Valentines Day :).
Fantastic, can hold it's ground against any regular New York Cheesecake. My Dad had been asking me to make his favorite New York Cheesecake for eons, but I kept putting it off as he really didn't need all those calories. I made this for him without telling him it was sugar free and low fat. He raved about it, said it was the best cheesecake ever. Thanks for sharing.
