Lovely Dessert

This is a lovely dessert and I made it even healthier by reducing the sugar by 1/3 and using low fat creme cheese. I love the fact it uses tofu to make the recipe extra protein rich.

In the first, my friend hates tofu. The friend loved the cheesecake but she did not know it had tofu until I told her. Of course she suprised because of no tasting tofu. She did not complain. Whew!!

Comments: This is the very best delicious cheesecake. I've use and baked with tofu all the time. When I told my daughter- and friends, they thought it would taste awfull. I surprised, my family and my friends at church dinner no one guessed that my cheesecake contained tofu and how I got it to be creamiest ever. PS {No one would ever guess that there is tofu in your cheese cake at your dinner either.}

love this

This is one delicious cheesecake. I've never baked with tofu before, but my daughter-in-law uses it so I thought I would give it a try. Your family or guests would never guess it contains tofu, but it's the creamiest ever.
