Here is a recipe for my favorite vlf cheesecake. It is from the Susan
Powter cookbook "Come On America, Let's Eat."
1/4 c sugar
2 TBS sugar
1 cup sugar
2 8-oz packages nonfat Philadelphia-Brand cream cheese
1 8-oz package low-fat cream cheese
4 egg whites
2 TBS lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon rind 1 tsp vanilla extract
Spray pie pan with nonstick spray. To make crust, combine sugar and
crumbs. shake into pie pan, lightly covering sides and leaving a thick
layer of crumbs evenly on the bottom.
To make filing, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sugar and cream
cheeses together until creamy. BEat in remaining ingredients. Pour into
pie pan and bake for about 45 minutes, until set.

(Of course the last two are changed by omitting the whole egg.)
I think it tastes best after chilling over night.
I omitted the egg and used 5 egg whites and found it didn't taste any
I used a food processor to blend the cream cheeses etc. It made the job
I hope you like it as much as I do. The only problem is that it is hard
for me to stop eating. Therefore, I make it only on special occasions
(like when my weight is where I want it)
I've put a topping of a ff pie filling and found it great that way also.
