The Great Cheesecake Fiasco

So, I came up with this Phase 1 friendly cheesecake recipe (find out more about Phase 1 at I Know the Cause!), and posted it on the Message Board at I Know the Cause!.

I will post the recipe below, for everyone! Anyhow, a woman read it and sent me this email:
"Amelia....What is crack in your recipe...that you put on top while cooling!!!"

Can I tell you that I friggen fell off of my chair? Clearly she read it wrong....

Now, here's the recipe!

I call this Wahoo! Cheesecake because when I found out I could make and have cheesecake on Phase 1 - I said "WAHOO!"

Yield: 1 9-10 inch Cheesecake

12oz Cream Cheese
2 eggs
1 tbsp lemon
1/2 cup Heavy Whip Cream
Stevia to taste (go sweeter than you think)

If you'd like, you can soften the cream cheese in the microwave for 15 seconds, this makes it easier to mix without lumps.

In a large mixing bowl combine cream cheese, lemon, stevia and 1 egg. Mix until well blended and there are very few lumps. Mix in 2nd egg until completely mixed.

Fold in whipping cream until just mixed, do not overbeat.

Pour into crust (see Nutmeal Pie Crust recipe). You can use a springform pan, however, you would need to add to the recipe, or this will make a very flat cheesecake in a springform pan.

For a creamy cheesecake, bake it in a water bath. Take a large pan like a roasting pan (be sure to test your pie plate/springform pan to fit inside), and place cheesecake pan inside. Fill larger pan with water until halfway up the sides of the cheesecake pan.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Then chill for at least 2 hours. Top will crack while cooling.

Serve with sliced strawberries or other Phase friendly fruit.
