Breakfast Cheesecake (South Beach Diet, Phase 1)

I adapted this from an old recipe for a lowfat cheesecake using sugar. Prep time does not include chilling time. When you get tired of eating eggs on the SB Diet, this will feel like a treat.

The recipe was easy to put together and smelled amazing while it baked. BUT when it came time to eat it; it was like cold wet sand in your mouth. Very disappointing.
