A great treat that's almost as satisfying as the original. If you want a goodie without clogging any arteries or adding 500 calories with one small piece of dessert, this is a good one. I made this twice, discovering after my first attempt that the egg whites were not mentioned in the directions and I had forgotten to add them. In the end I added the egg whites along with the other filling ingredients, using 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 cup Splenda and 6T baking cocoa, turning it into chocolate cheesecake. I also increased the sweetness of the topping, using 3T sugar and 5T Splenda, finding that the extra sweetness hid the slight aftertaste of the fat free dairy.
