Cheesecake

The earliest mention of cheesecake was by Greek physician Aegimus, who wrote a book on the art of making cheesecake. In 1912 James Kraft developed a form of pasteurized cream cheese. In 1928, he acquired the Philadelphia trademark and marketed pasteurized Philadelphia Cream Cheese. This cheesecake recipe utilizes Kraft’s invention. We hope you enjoy this quick and easy snack cheesecake recipe.

Servings 6 servings
Calories 54 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 3-5 cloves garlic minced or put through a garlic press
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Splenda
  • 1 Can (28 ounce) crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes about 1/4 teaspoon
  • 1 TBSP MCT Oil

Instructions
 

  • Heat the MCT oil over medium-low heat until it shimmers. Saute the onions, stirring frequently, until they soften and shine, about three minutes. The onions should sizzle and hiss as they cook. Add the garlic. Stir to combine. This prevents the garlic from burning. Cook an additional two minutes. Add the basil, red pepper flakes, salt, and Splenda. Stir to combine. Stir, cook for about a minute.
  • Add 1/2 can of the crushed tomatoes. Scrape the bottom of the pan to remove any stuck on bits. Reduce heat to low. Add remaining tomatoes. Stir in 1/4 cup water. If the sauce seems too thick, add additional water.
  • Allow sauce to simmer for 10 minutes to up to one hour. If simmering for a longer, stir the sauce occasionally and add additional water as needed to keep the sauce at the correct consistency.

Servings 36 Cookies
Calories 81 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/4 cups Carbquick
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup Butter Melted & slightly cooled
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar Substitute I used Swerve
  • 1/2 cup Stevia
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 Large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar free chocolate chips I used Hersey's

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • In large bowl, whisk together Carbquik, baking soda & salt.
  • In separate bowl, whisk together melted butter and both sugar substitutes until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in egg plus egg yolk and then vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  • Mix wet ingredients into Carbquik mixture with wooden spoon or spatula. Dough will be softer than normal but thick. Stir in SF chocolate chips. Cover dough and place in refrigerator for 2 - 3 hrs or longer. Overnight is even better!
  • Remove cookie dough from refrigerator and let soften slightly at room temp, about 10 mins. Roll into balls, about 3 Tbps is size (I used a med ice cream/cookie scoop to portion dough) and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper or silicone mats. Balls should be slightly taller than they are wide to prevent too much spreading.
  • Bake @ 325 degrees for about 12 mins. Remove from oven. Note: cookies may look slightly under baked. Let them cool on baking sheet for 10 mins. Then move to wire rack to cool completely.
