Size Wise

Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Passover Celebrations

To prepare this recipe for Passover, select food products that are kosher for Passover as needed. Consult with your rabbi if you have any questions.

How to Test Cheesecake Doneness

To avoid overbaking a cheesecake, check for doneness at the minimum baking time by gently shaking the pan. If the cheesecake is done, the edge should be slightly puffed and it will be set except for a small area in the center that will be soft and jiggly. Do not insert a knife into the center as this may cause the cheesecake to crack during cooling.

Note

Reduce oven to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan.

Make Ahead

Cheesecake can be baked ahead of time. Cool completely, then wrap securely in plastic wrap followed by foil. Freeze up to 2 months. Thaw wrapped cheesecake in refrigerator overnight.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instead of the 4 blocks of regular cream cheese, I substituted with 2 fat free and 2 reduced fat. Instead of the 4 blocks of regular cream cheese, I substituted with 2 fat free and 2 reduced fat. I also used liquid egg substitute in place of 4 eggs. I used lemon cookie crumbs for the crust and real lemon peel in the cheesecake itself. Turned out pretty good and cut out a majority of the fat.
