Orgasmic Cheesecake Recipe

That’s right, I said orgasmic.  I love food so much that when something is really incredible this word is perfect to describe it. This cheesecake is not only delicious, but vegan. I am in heaven.

Anyone who knows me really well knows that I am a huge Golden Girls fan.  I am embarrassed proud to say I own every season on DVD!  And, just like these Miami ladies, I am also a fan of cheesecake.  In fact, it’s really the only dessert I will eat when I do eat dessert, which is not often.  When I decided to cut out all dairy, I was fully prepared to say goodbye to cheesecakes.  But then I found this recipe.

I was watching the dvd Vegan Cooking for Animal Lovers and on it they had a cheesecake recipe.  I never thought it possible!  After returning the dvd back to netflix, I scoured the internet for the recipe, but couldn’t find it.  Instead I found this recipe on veggieboards.com that looked close. and decided to try it.

Filling:
8 oz. Tofutti Sour Supreme
16 oz. Tofutti cream cheese
1 c. Florida Crystals brown sugar
2 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp.salt

Instructions:
—————————————————–
Preaheat oven to 325 degrees. With an electric mixer, blend all the filling ingredients until smooth. Pour into ready-made crust (many are vegan, just check the ingredients) and bake for 45 minutes to an hour until just golden brown. Let cool (about an hour) and chill for 3 hours before serving.

Notes:  The original recipe had directions for making the crust.  No thanks, I’ll stick with ready made ’cause I don’t have that kind of patience.  Also, the original recipe said to bake for 25 minutes? HA!  If you do that you will end up with a mushy mess even after chilling.  Mine took AT LEAST an hour in the oven before the pie turned “a golden brown” and custard-like.  This was sooo easy to make and sooo good.  You can also change this up for different flavors.  Crunch up some Oreos (vegan!) and throw into the filling mixture.  Stir in some melba sauce when filling the pie crust.  Mix in some peanut butter when combining the filling ingredients.  Or just serve with fresh sliced strawberries. So yum!

I read somewhere that veg*ns should not be “allowed” to call this cheesecake, that it should be called “tofucake.” Fine. It’s tofucake.  Now gimmee a fork!
