ALTERNATE CHEESECAKE FILLING

This makes for a very substantial cheesecake filling. I’ve used either of these fillings for the Ganache Cheesecake and both are nice.

24 oz regular cream cheese

3/4 cup sour cream

1 cup SPLENDA® Granular

1/2 cup erythritol

6 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

In food processor, process cream cheese. Add sour cream, SPLENDA® Granular and erythritol; process. Add eggs one at a time while processing and add vanilla extract while processing.

Bake in water bath at 325°F for 1 hour or until set.
