Decided to make some cheesecake as it has been long since I last made them. Have been experimenting a lot with different flavour of bread and haven been baking cakes. So, this round I decided to try this recipe that I come across from EllenaGuan and replaced with the less fat cream cheese.
The taste is really yummy even though I didnt use the usual cream cheese. It taste like eating ice cream cake, not too overwhelming and not too sweet. I love it, hubby loves them too, as well as the little ones at home. So, definately gonna make them again if I am hosting a small party at home.
