This turned out very well. Texture was very much like a fat-filled NY cheesecake but without the extra 500 calories or so. Lighter taste than classic cheese cake but quite delicious. Guests were very impressed, one mentioned they've tried "light" cheesecakes and didn't like them at all but this one was "excellent".
