GFCF Strawberry Cheesecake
I was making a cheesecake for work today and decided to experiment and see if I could make a gfcf one for home as well. I made it exactly like the one I made for work except I used the Toffutti fake cream cheese in place of the cream cheese and made it strawberries instead of blueberry. The gfcf one was a little thinner when I poured it in the pan, but they cooked up the same and it tasted great.
For the crust, I took some gfcf crackers, gorilla munch cereal and enjoy life cereal (a granola type) and put them in the food processor and ground them up fine and then mixed with some melted gfcf margarine. I pressed them in the bottom of a springform pan and baked for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Beat 2 packages (8 oz) Toffutti Better than Cream Cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Pour on top of crust. Crush some fresh strawberries (about a half cup crushed) and put on top and then swirl into the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until set in the center. Turn oven off and allow to cool. Chill before eating.
