It tasted very fat free- not good! I make MUCH better- try this if you want almost carb free, with fat: 3 (8oz) blocks cream cheese- softened 1/4 cup sour cream whip until fluffy and add any artificial sweetener to taste. Beat 1 minute then add 2 eggs and continue beating til mixed. Add 2 tsp vanilla. Pour/scoop into (lined) muffin cups and bake 25 minutes at 350. Chill thoroughly before eating.

Excellent! I made the following adjustments: I doubled the recipe and omitted the flour and vanilla. I also used lower fat cream cheese instead of fat free and used "Egg Beaters" for the egg. (I think fat free cream cheese would negatively effect the consistency too much. It helps to beat the ingredients very thouroughly! This is a riccotta recipe, it is a "grainy" cheese which will show up in the texture of the final product.) I also added 1/4 cup lime juice and the jest of two limes to the batter. As we are low carb people, I used sugar free wafer cookies, pecans and Splenda to make the crust. Will definitely make this again and again. Highly recommended!

I brought this to a girls weekend since everyone is on the low carb diet, they thought the flavor was ok, but the texture was really grainy, maybe I didnt beat it long enough , but I dont think I will try it again. sorry
