The best Chocolate Chip Cheesecake ever!

This is absolutely one of the best

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

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.

Cheesecake:

2 large eggs, beaten
16 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup granular  Splenda (or equivalent in Kal Stevia)
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.

* Honeyville Almond Flour 

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.

Happy Easter! and my 100th post!!!

Due to family sickness and a very busy weekend, we’re having a simplified Easter meal.

For the past couple years, we’ve gone to a local restaurant, but it’s just not the same as a good home cooked meal spent in a relaxed atmosphere with family.  Good times!

Here’s our tentative menu:

Brisket or Baked Ham
Yeast Rolls

Happy Easter to you and yours!

 

 

As I was checking out my WP Dashboard I noticed that this is my

100th post! 

In the near future, I hope to have a giveaway to celebrate this small milestone.  Stay tuned!

Brownies and Ice Cream

This is my daughter B’s creation and attempt at food photography.   She’s always photographing different dishes for my blog, so I thought I’d honor her with this post.  Great job, B – Thanks, Mom

Another Brownie Recipe

Honest, that’s the title of this recipe.  I considered calling it Easy One Bowl Brownies, but decided to go with what I wrote down on the card.  This is another from my vintage recipe collection.

This recipe is very forgiving and I have made substitutions in the past with great results.

Another Brownie Recipe
 
1 stick butter, melted ( I have used 1/2 cup oil or 1/2 cup applesauce)
5 T cocoa ( I used 2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate)
2 eggs
3/4 c flour
1 cup sugar (I added 1/2 cup brown sugar)
1/2 cup pecan pieces, optional

Mix all together.  Pour into 7 x11 dish for thicker brownies. 

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
