We had some friends over for supper the other night and I made this yummy New York Cheesecake. I found the recipe online and then altered it a bit to suit our tastes. Here's my recipe:
Teresa's Virginia Cheesecake :o)
15 graham crackers, crushed
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/2 pounds cream cheese, softened
1 3/4 cups Splenda
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup mini chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan. Preheat oven temperature to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 3/4 cups Splenda, 3 tablespoons flour, 5 eggs and the 2 yolks and mix thoroughly. Add sour cream and mix only enough to blend. Pour filling over crust and sprinkle chocolate chips on top (or mix with batter). Bake for 10 minutes at 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). Reduce temperature to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C) and continue to bake for one hour. Turn oven off, but leave cake in for another hour. Don't worry if it looks a little jiggly in the center. Chill overnight. This is imperative! Serve with fruit topping, if desired.
