Josie, this sounds wonderful and something my diabetic Dad would love. My only concern is the cream cheese - did you use light? How big a package of graham crackers did you use? I buy crumbs in large quantities and just measure what I need but others might want to know the size.

I used regular cream cheese. That was what I had. I used one sleeve of graham crackers. Sorry I don't know how much that is in measurement. I only put the crumbs on the bottom. I have made lots of cheese cakes with no crust. I don't see any reason the lite cream cheese would not work. I know fat free dosen't work for me. Wish my camera was working it was pretty.

I figured one sleeve, but sometimes US and Canadian products come differently so wasn't sure. I just eyeball for my crusts.

I usually use regular cream cheese for Dad as well, but was just wondering what you used.

I am definitely going to make this very soon. He loves his treats! Thanks for posting it.

Looks good, Josie!

I created a crushed pecan crust for diabetic cheesecake! I just swapped the same amount of crushed pecans for the graham crackers. Otherwise our recipe looks the same.

Oooh yum!! I have to give this a try. We don't have Graham crackers here but I'm sure I can think up an alternative.

I'm sure you didn't have any cornstarch lumps in your cheesecake, but it so you might want to consider mixing the cornstarch and the Splenda together. Or maybe people just do that when adding cornstarch to liquids.
