Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

No-Bake Lemon Souffle Cheesecake

Not much to say about this except....it's good!!!  Thinking this would be a wonderful little dessert, especially in the warmer weather when we don't want to turn on our ovens.
Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

1 Low-fat Graham Cracker, crushed (@3 TBSP), divided
2/3 cup boiling water
1 (3 oz) package sugar-free lemon gelatin
1 cup 1% milkfat low fat cottage cheese
1 (8 oz) package fat-free cream cheese
1 (8 oz) tub fat-free whipped topping, thawed

Sprinkle half of the graham cracker crumbs onto the side of an 8 or 9-inch springform pan or pie pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.

Add boiling water to gelatin mix in a small bowl; stir for 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Cool 5 minutes.

Blend gelatin mix, cottage cheese and cream cheese in a blender until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender container if necessary. Pour into a large bowl. Gently fold in the whipped topping.

Pour into the prepared pan; smooth the top. Sprinkle the remaining graham cracker crumbs around the outside edge of the mix. Refrigerate 4 hours or until set.

Remove side of pan before serving if using springform pan.

MY SPIN:  Just imagine all the different flavors there are of sugar-free gelatin and that's how many different flavors of this you can make!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!


  1. I made this with Lime Jell-o the other day, and it was really good. Last night I made it with Orange Jell-o, and wow...it was even better! It reminded me of a Creamsicle. YUM!!

  2. Oh the possibilities!!! So glad you liked this recipe, Dana Lee.....and experimented with other flavors! Next time.....invite me for a bite! :-)
