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!!!

Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake

I had a few strawberries left from the other day that really needed to be used. I made this quick little cheesecake and ate the rest!

Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 5 PointsPlus®

¼ cup fat-free milk
2 tsp vanilla
½ cup fat-free egg substitute
¾ cup Splenda granulated
¼ cup Original Bisquick mix
2 packages Neufchatel cream cheese, softened, cut into 16 pieces
1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and washed
2 TBSP Splenda granulated

Preheat oven to 325ยบ. Lightly spray the bottom only of a 9” glass pie plate. Set aside.

In a blender, place the milk, vanilla, egg substitute, ¾ cup Splenda and Bisquick. Cover and blend on high for @15 seconds.

Add cream cheese. Cover and blend for 2 minutes.

Pour into pie plate.

In same blender, place ½ cup strawberries and 2 TBSP Splenda. Cover and blend on high for 15 – 20 seconds until smooth. 

Drop by teaspoonfuls on top of the cream cheese mixture. With a toothpick, swirl strawberry sauce.

Bake 28 – 32 minutes or until about 2: of the edge of the pie is set and the center is still soft and slightly wiggly. Cool completely at room temp and then in the refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.

MY SPIN: This can be served 'as is' or garnished with other strawberries and fat-free whipped topping.

My piece, 'as is' because I ate the rest of the strawberries!!!

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!
