For Christmas I asked for a spring form pan. Yes, I ask for kitchen shit for Christmas, Birthdays, etc. *I* am a kitchen hoor!! Obviously, I got one. *happy dancing* So, now come the experiments with cheesecake. This being my second one, but first one with the right tool! :DI made the crust too thick and cooked it too long. The sides were REALLY crunchy. I used chocolate graham crackers. *misses chocolate Nilla wafers* They’re not a bad substitute. I was looking for the Oreo crumbs? But couldn’t find them.
I think I overcooked the cake. It was a little dryer than I thought? But that could be because it’s lowfat and not full fat. I might experiment with a regular cheesecake recipe to see if that’s the case. The “until set” part is a bit confusing to me. I’m sure we will enjoy tasting all my experiments.
This was tasty! Very chocolatey! S didn’t like the sour cream topping. He’s funny with sour cream that way. It was rather tangy. I’m not sure it did much to enhance the cheesecake so if I make this one again, I won’t use that. We had FF chocolate topping, so used that. I would like to find the FF hot fudge and try it with that to see if it’s any better.
Knowing what I know after my first experiment, I will probably make this again or some variation of it.
