Well.. I made my first batch this weekend, I used the mini cupcake pan and they were really super!! I agree they are better cold vs. hot/warm.. I can't wait to make them again... My kids liked them to but I made them a batch of regular brownies just to keep them out of my goodies... I took a finger lick of the brownie mixture and thought- oh this is really yucky!!! Took a finger lick of my cream cheese mixture and was in heaven.. It's good enough to eat out of the bowl before you even cook it... !!! Now.. I'll have to try adding different stuff to them.

Char, I have some dried cranberries leftover from the holidays. Wonder if they'd be good in this? Should I rehydrate these first too? Are they high in carbs ya think?

Most dried cranberries are sweetened with sugar so if you don't still have the package to check - I'd be suspicious!

If sugar-sweetened, yep, they're high carb. If not then they'd be OK. I'd rehydrate by just pouring a little DaVinci vanilla SF syrup on them and letting them sit for at least half an hour - that will sweeten them up as well.

If you're not sure about the sugar - try eating one plain. If it's quite tart, it's probably not sweetened. If it's at all sweet though I'd be very suspicious of it!

Thanks, had no idea! These were bought in a natural food store, in their packaging so I'll just use them for something else, like in a white chocolate fudge, for gifts.

I used 1 cup of Davinci's Vanilla syrup in mine, instead of Splenda. They were very runny and I got more than 24 mini-cheesecakes from it. What did I do wrong?

I used only 1/2 cup of Davinci's & they turned out pretty good.

The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup granulated Splenda, so adding a cup of liquid is a major change. I used 6 tablespoons (1/4 cup plus 2 T.) syrup and some powdered sweeteners. Even that was a bit "liquid" but they baked up fine, probably because I also added some protein powder as well.

OMG I am done tweaking!!!! This recip is soooo good! I just hope I dont have portion control issues, lol

This is my recipe....(I only make a 1/2 recipe at a time...of course, the amounts can be doubled)

1 8oz pkg of philadelphia cream cheese
1/8 c of davincis caramel syrup
1/8 c sour cream
1 egg

I make it the same way...cool in the oven, then cover & put in fridge...with this recipe there was no cracking, no indent (they did "fall" as they cooled)...I hope someone else enjoys these as much as I do! (and I'm not a huge caramel fan, but these are delish!)

Charski - The origninal recipe calls for 1 cup Splenda. I take it that this does NOT equate to 1 cup of syrup?

I must be having a brain fart. I see now that the original recipe does call for 1/2 cup sweetener. I believe that I used the correct amount, I just wasn't sure what that was when I posted the previous message. Regardless, they were still runny.

They are going to be if you add that much liquid. I added just a couple of T of raspberry jam to one batch and they were much more liquidy. I can't imagine what would happen if I added that much liquid. If you are going to add that much liquid, you have to add alot more of something to solid the recipe back up.

LOL! Sounds like me.

Now, I did NOT make the original recipe - the first time I made these (last weekend) I used 6 T. DaVinci syrup and a blend of other dry sweeteners PLUS a scoop whey protein powder - and the batter was fairly thin, but the finished product was just fine from a texture standpoint.

All the tweaks are what makes this WOE so fun for me - I love cooking and I love experimenting with my own and other people's recipes. Some turn out poorly but most turn out at least edible!

I think if you read thru the thread there was somebody who made them with just one egg...don't remember how they said they turned out though. I bet if you use just 1 egg, and substitute all the Splenda with a SF syrup, they should be fine because the syrup will make up for some of the liquid content from the egg. Heck, maybe I'll try that this AM as my CC Muffin stash is gone!

i just made these - the tweaked way. They look really ugly - like the top is all cracked and stuff. I mixed in some carbquick too and i dunno if that is why they are ugly? But they taste GGGGREAT!

Oh yeah, they will be ugly. I only had one batch turn out pretty and that was because I doubled the eggs and accidentally made little custards instead of muffins

Stats: I would tell you but I'd have to kill you.
I used one pkg FF cream cheese and one package 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I used an extra egg and 1/2 c. white choc. Davinci. After 18 minutes, they were not anywhere colse to done. I gave them another 5 minutes and turned the oven off and opened the door a bit. They have a bit of a crust on top, but the inside is the consistency of thick pudding. Will they firm up in the fridge? Is that how they normally turn out?

I just tried one more variation and they turned out great!

Pumpkin Cheesecakes

2-8 oz. pkgs. of cream cheese
1 can pumpkin
1/4 c. granulated Splenda
1/4 c. Davinci praline syrup
1/4 c. sour cream
3 eggs
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ginger
1/4 t. cloves

Mix together according to original recipe on page 1 of this thread. I put about 1 teaspoon crushed pecans in the bottom of my paper muffin cups. I baked at 350 for 20 minutes and left in oven with door open until they had cooled. When I removed them from the oven and they were cooled I took them all out of the muffin papers and they came out beautifully leaving no residue behind. After refrigerating, the texture was very creamy like pumpkin pie.

This made 24 muffins and I figure approximately 2 carbs per muffin.

Fun to have not only the great tasting original recipe, but some variations to mix it up abit. Thanks for the recipe!

It's been my experience that baking FF cream cheese never gets you anything edible.

Actually, the consistency was PERFECT after they sat for awhile. Super creamy, not crumbly or dry at all. I just need to work on the flavor a bit. I added 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate and they were not nearly sweet enough.

I sprinkled some pumpkin pie spice in my batter before pouring and OMG they are soooo good, reminds me of the holidays.

Didn't think of using that, I LOVE my magic bullet (well, for lc margarita's)

I love these muffins...yesterday I played with a new version...they are great!!

If you have a good brownie recipe or some packaged L/C brownie mix try this:

Make the brownie mix according to package directions (or recipe), pour into the bottom of the muffin tin (about half full or less).

Make up the cream cheese muffin mix and pour on top of the brownie mix. Fill the cup with this mixture.

Bake for the time recommended on the brownie pack or recipe. I baked mine 25 min.

These are delicious, DH couldn't stop eating them, I finally had to make him quit to have some for tomorrow.
