" Atkins Friendly" Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by mermaidmagic

My neighbor Frannie came up with the idea for this cheesecake. Her husband and mine (who are on the Atkins diet) both love it! This cake is sweetened with Splenda. Makes 12 servings, 6 to 8 grams of carbs each.

Delicious. I am not an experienced cheesecake maker but I was easily able to make this perfectly. I did make a substitution, though - I used part Erythritol (2/3 c) and part Erythritol + Stevia (1/3 c) blend (both granulated) instead of Splenda.
