I wanted to make a cheesecake that would have all the liquers we love in an after dinner coffee - Kahlua, Frangelico and Bailey's. At DH's restaurant, they call this coffee a "Payday" so here is the recipe for my new creation - Payday Cheesecake.
The experiment came out wonderful. You can taste all three flavors but none of them are overpowering. This is really good!
The best part is that it's super light. Only 5 and 1/4 points for a serving, assuming 12 servings. It's so light that you don't have to cut it into miniscule pieces to get 16 out of the cake.
AND...... DH had NO IDEA it was even remotely light! And I'm not telling!
I modified the recipe Clairea found for Chocolate-Frangelico cheesecake and used her suggestion to put the Bailey's and Kahlua in the cake part and the Frangelico in the whipped cream topping. I was afraid to add too much liquid to the cake part. However, using the given cooking time, it was almost overcooked and I think next time I won't be afraid to put all 3 liquers in the cake. I would also like to try YP's suggestion to make 3 different layers. So that's my next experiment.
In the meantime, here it is (drumroll, please!)
Gracie's Payday Cheesecake!!!
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 T. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
3 8-oz bars of fat free cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
5 tsp. cornstarch
3 egg whites
1 whole egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup (2 oz, or one "nip") Kahlua
1/4 cup (2 oz, or one "nip") Bailey's
1/4 cup (2 oz, or one "nip") Frangelico
2 cups fat free whipped topping
Preheat oven to 425. Mix graham cracker crumbs with the ICBINB and press into the bottom of a nonstick-sprayed springform pan.
Mix cream cheese, sugar, sour cream and cornstarch. Add egg whites, egg and vanilla, mix well. Add Bailey's and Kahlua and mix well.
Pour cheese mixture into crust. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Lower the oven temp to 325 and bake for an additional 45 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool in pan on a rack.
When completely cool, thaw frozen whipped topping and blend in the Frangelico until completely mixed. Spread or pipe whipped topping onto cake and chill for at least 4 hours.
Assuming 12 servings - 5 1/3 Weight Watcher points.
Here's the point breakdown (some point values are rounded up to the next whole point):
3 T. ICBINB = 3 points
1 1/2 C. graham cracker crumbs = 16 points
1/2 C. sugar = 8 points
1/4 C. fat free sour cream = 2 points
5 tsp. cornstarch = 3 points
1 egg = 2 points
3 egg whites = 1 point
2 C. fat free whipped topping = 16 points
1/4 C. Bailey's = 4 points
1/4 C. Frangelico = 4 points
1/4 C. Kahlua = 4 points
Total for cake = 63 points
12 servings = 5 1/3 points
It would be even lighter to use YP's suggestion to make 3 layers and not use the whipped topping.
This'll be a definite repeater in our house. Even DD liked it. DH thought she might not because he said "it tastes like booze" but she loved it.
If anyone tries this, please let me know if you like it. Enjoy!
