The recipe sounds great, thank you. I've a question please. I'm not able to find Graham crackers in my country (Egypt), what could be a good substitute that would be low in protein & potassium as well? Thank you in advance. Dietitian comment: You could substitute a frozen or homemade traditional pie crust. Bake and cool before adding the filling.

My aunt is diabetic, and I want us to share this recipe, so I am opting to use Splenda Sweetner and Splenda Powered Sugar I found at the store. Curious to know how that would affect the calories if I could find out from someone. Thank you.

I love this cheesecake! I have made it twice now. The last time I made it I did something a little different with it. Instead of making it a pie, I put the cracker crumbs in the bottom of lined cupcake papers and filled them as you would the pie. I was able to get 15 cupcakes out of the recipe. To me it was just the right amount of sweetness and tartness to kill the craving for something sweet without messing up my kidney diet.

This cheesecake was wonderful. The only problem I had in making it was at what point do I add the powdered sugar? I added it into the cream cheese although there wasn't any guidance to tell me to do it then. Moderator reply: Yes, add the powdered sugar to the cream cheese. I have made this change to the preparation instructions. Thanks!

This turned out just great! We used real lemons in place of a concentrate. The flavor and texture is light. Makes an excellent dessert. I do recommend doing a homemade graham cracker crust. It enhances the taste and quality I think.
