This cheesecake is made with silken tofu. Before you click off the page, hear me out. I compared this recipe with Betty Crocker's classic Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe (which you can find easily at bettycrocker.com). That recipe states that it makes a (laughable) 16 servings for a 9" pie. We all know that even after having stuffed ourselves that this pie is always going to be eight slices. I'll give Betty the benefit of the doubt and compare her 16-slice pie to my 8-slice pie. Mine still saves 75 calories, 10g fat, 9g saturated fat, 16mg salt, 110mg cholesterol and adds 2g fiber per slice - and let's not forget the important point that you get DOUBLE the size slice. Reconsidering tofu?
