BK, you adorable little witch, you've cast one impressive spell with this creation! You know that I had to reduce the numbers as much as I could but even with using graham cracker crumbs in place of the cookies (to lessen sugar content), non-hydrogenated margarine, low fat cream cheese, Splenda and egg whites (no yolks) this is a very rich tasting, creamy, smooth and elegant cheesecake. My only problem was that the crust wanted to crumble even though I added more margarine. That might not be the case if the cookie crumbs are used. Love the crunch of the almond bits in the crust, they are a lovely counter point the the smoothness of the filling. Yule Blessings and peace to your heart my friend, and thank you.
