Diabetic Friendly Recipe
A wafer crumb and pecan crust with a cream cheese, brown sugar substitute, egg, vanilla, espresso coffee powder, flour and sour cream filling make this a rich mocha cheesecake.
1-1/2 cups sugar free chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
1-1/2 cups chopped pecans
4 tablespoons butter
3 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup brown sugar substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 400-degrees.
Combine the chocolate wafer cookie crumbs, pecans and butter or margarine and mix well. Press into the bottom and 1/2 up the sides of one 9-inch springform pan.
In a large bowl, with and electric mixer on medium speed, beat together the cream cheese and brown sugar substitute until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and espresso until smooth and well blended. Approximately two minutes. Add the flour and sour cream and beat until smooth. Scrape filling into the prepared crust and smooth top.
Bake at 400-degrees for 15 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 300-degrees and continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheesecake is set around the edges but still jiggles slightly in the center.
Let cake cool for two to three hours then refrigerate until well chilled. Approximately six hours or overnight. One hour before serving, run a knife around the edge of the pan and remove the cake from the springform pan. Slice Mocha Cheesecake and serve.
