Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C ). Mix together graham cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup melted butter. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9 1/2 inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes. Cool. Don't turn the oven off.
  2. Place potatoes in a baking dish. Bake until a knife inserted in center goes through easily, about 1 hour. Don't turn oven off. Cool sweet potatoes enough to handle, peel, and puree.
  3. Transfer 1 1/2 cups of sweet potato puree to a large bowl. Mix in cream cheese, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, sour cream and 1/4 cup half-and-half; beat until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, blending well after each. Season with cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour filling into crust.
  4. Bake until tester inserted in center comes out clean, 1 hour. Turn off the oven. Let cake stand 1 hour in oven with door ajar. Cool to room temperature, and refrigerate to chill.

This recipe didn't turn out for me at all! Okay, I took a couple of shortcuts so I can't really rate it one star. I used canned sweet potatoes (not in syrup though) and tried making mini cheesecakes in muffin tins rather than one big cheesecake. Still, I can't imagine why they wouldn't cook/set up at all and I don't believe it would have turned out much better by not taking the shortcuts. I don't think I'll be trying this one again... I'm actually not a big fan of baking with Splenda, but I love the idea of satisfying my sweet tooth without a ton of calories!

This is excellent! I am on a low carb diet - so I bake it in a 13 x 9" foil lined pan - delicious.
