Cheesecake recipe

Cheesecake recipe

Last week at a birthday party I tasted this wonderful cheesecake. I made it for my husband and mom yesterday, and they loved it. Mom wasn't at the party, since she is disabled and the house did not have accessibility, so she keeps crediting me with it, even though I keep telling her that I got it from Bob's cousin. She then responds, "Well, you’re the one who made it for me and with Splenda. You changed the recipe, so it is now your cheesecake recipe". So since my mom has dubbed it mine, I thought I would share it with you. (Bob's cousin won't mind. She freely shares her recipes with everyone).

2 containers of refrigerated dinner crescents (I used Pillsbury)
2 eight-ounce packages of cream cheese
1 cup of Splenda (originally called for sugar, but my mom is diabetic)
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
Cinnamon and Splenda mixed together, between 1-3 teaspoons, depending on your preference. I used 3 teaspoons.

Unroll one package of refrigerated dinner crescents, and place in greased rectangular pan. In a medium bowl, mix the two packages of cream cheese together with the Splenda and vanilla extract. Spread over dinner rolls. Place second package of unrolled refrigerated dinner crescents over cheese mixture. Sprinkle cinnamon mixed with sugar over the top.

My husband’s favorite cousin gave this recipe to me. She used sugar instead of Splenda.

Dear Madam:

Please cease and desist from further publication of said cheesecake recipe. Substituting "Splenda" for sugar does not constitute authority to claim said recipe as your own.

No, seriously. It sounds delicious! Sigh...I'm back on my low carb regiment.
