  • Combine the chocolate wafer cookie crumbs, pecans and butter or margarine and mix well. Press into the bottom and 1/2 up the sides of one 9 inch springform pan.

  • In a large bowl, with and electric mixer on medium speed, beat together the cream cheese and brown sugar substitute until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and espresso until smooth and well blended. Approximately 2 minutes. Add the flour and sour cream and beat until smooth. Scrape filling into the prepared crust and smooth top.

  • Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 15 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) and continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheesecake is set around the edges but still jiggles slightly in the center. Let cake cool for 2 to 3 hours then refrigerate until well chilled. Approximately 6 hours or overnight. One hour before serving, run a knife around the edge of the pan and remove the cake from the springform pan. Slice and serve.

This is an awesome sugar free recipe!!!! I used a little less espresso and sugar free oreos for the curst (scraped out most of the filling). I make this whenever I am dieting and have a sweet tooth and for our Uncle who is diabetic...FOR SURE worth trying!! Read More

This cheesecake is awesome! Perfect cheesecake consistency. Made it for my brother's bday and everyone was raving! I used Sugar Free Oreos for the crust and also left out the mocha powder and squirted some Sugar Free Smuckers Carmel topping on the top and swirled it in before baking. This recipe is a winner because you can use this as a basic and make all kinds of variations on flavors! Winner!!! Read More

OMG This is so good. Everyone I have served it to has wanted the recipe. The only thing I did different was I used one of those mocha instant coffees instead of espresso. Thank you Jenn for this recipe. Read More

Unbelievable! One of the best things I have ever tried on Allrecipes. I used two different chocolate graham cracker crusts and mocha instant coffee instead of espresso. I wasn't sure about "brown sugar substitute" as the only kind I can find is Splenda Brown Sugar BLEND which would call for half of the 1C if following the normal rules between Splenda and Splenda BLEND. So I compromised and used 1/2C regular Splenda and 1/4 C of the brown sugar blend. This equals 1C of sweetness. Anyway that was all I changed and it came out AMAZING. I can't understand a one star review at all. YUM. Read More

This cheesecake was a BIG hit! My dad found out that he was diabetic back in 1988. He said that this was the BEST SF cheesecake that he has ever had. Now that is a compliment. Read More
