This recipe was perfect for adapting for our family’s dietary needs. I subbed used 1/3 cup + 1 tbl of Stevia and ½ cup + ½ tbl of organic sugar. I replaced one of the packages of cream cheese with Neufchâtel cheese. Instead of butter, I used Smart Balance Blend. I also used low fat graham crackers. To ensure consistency, I used an extra egg yolk. The sour cream was reduced fat. Like many others in the reviews, I melted the chocolate chips. This was by far the tastiest cheesecake I’ve made in awhile. It was also the simplest. I was a little worried that it wouldn’t be set in the allotted time, but I was worried for nothing. The second really made helped bring together the flavors in the topping. I’m not big on toping cheesecakes with sour cream, but this worked. I will say that I’d be fine with no topping at all because the cheesecake doesn’t really need it. The crust was just right, the consistency of the cheesecake was perfect and the taste was spot on. There are no leftovers. If you are hesitating about which recipe to try- go for this one. Its easy and its delicious. What more can you ask for?
