I know Christmas is close and I’ve been so busy in the kitchen,
I’ve had very little time to actually post what I’ve been cooking.
Soon I’ll have a post on the candies and cookies I’ve been making,
but in the meantime … these are some of the dishes
I made for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes
I’ve ever tasted!
A few days before, I had made some low carb almond flour brownies. They were okay, but nothing to write home about. I hated to waste, so I decided to recycle what was left of the brownies. I wanted to make a peanut butter cheesecake, but there was no peanut butter, but…I had sugar free chocolate chips! So I drug out this recipe I have used before, along with a 9″ spring form pan. I’m so glad I did!
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with Brownie Crust
I crumbled my leftover brownies in a bowl along with an egg and mixed it well. I pressed that mixture into the bottom of the spring form pan to form the crust.
2 large eggs, beaten
16 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup granular Splenda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips
Place the eggs, granular Splenda, cream cheese and vanilla into a mixer and blend until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the cheesecake mixture into the crust and bake for 45-50 minutes at 350º or until it looks like it is set or kinda firm in the middle. Cool in the oven for a few hours. Refrigerate overnight.
This cheesecake makes several servings and even a small slice is very satisfying.
Note: If you are not watching your sugar intake, substitute regular granulated white sugar for the Splenda and regular semi-sweet chocolate chips for the SF chocolate chips.
