Description

Cheesecake has always been one of those desserts that I struggle with. The cheesecake can get cracks on top, or the top turns brown.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 10 item(s) cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookie(s)
  • 8 oz  block fat-free cream cheese
  • 8 oz block low fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup(s) fat-free cottage cheese
  • 2 tsp almond extract, or less to taste
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup(s) mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  2. Using an electric mixer or food processor, beat together cream cheeses on lowest speed until well blended. Add the flour and sugar to the cream cheese mixture and continue blending until everything is well combined.
  3. Take out the cream cheese and add it to a bowl. Then purée the cottage cheese and almond extract together until smooth using the same food processor. (everything is going into the same bowl, so the food processor does not need to be cleaned out.)
  4.  Add the blended cottage cheese mixture to the cream cheese, stir together, then add eggs and stir until well blended. Stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
  5.  Lightly coat a 9-inch spring form pan or cake pan with cooking spray. Crush cookies in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin and sprinkle cookie crumbs evenly over bottom of pan.
  6. Pour the cheesecake batter into the spring form pan; and bake until cheesecake puffs and center is almost set, about 60 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
  7. Run a knife around sides to loosen and release pan sides. Cover and chill overnight.
  8. Slice into 12 equal servings, serving size 1 slice. 
  9. Garnish the top with some more chocolate chips or light whipped topping. (optional)
