Erica's Cheesecake

Submitted by: JT_GMOTU

Introduction

This comes by way of Erica on the Chatzy Board. Her original recipe used xylitol as the sweetner (which measures 1 to 1 when compared with sugar). I used Sweetleaf Stevia Powder where 2 TBSP Stevia = 1 C sugar sweetness. This comes by way of Erica on the Chatzy Board.

    3 - 8oz Cream Cheese (room temp.)

Tips

I tried xylitol, but this sweetner made me "gassy"...apparently I do not do well with the sugar alcohols.
