I saw the title and I immediately printed the recipe off. Looks delicious! One question: you said you like to use Splenda. Does it make the cheese cake taste only like splenda? I find that to be the case in other recipes that use it. (Like coke with splenda... though I don't drink any pop at all anymore).

flagostomos, I only use the Splenda to sweeten the crust. The yogurt and pudding mix are sweet enough for the filling. No additional sweetener is needed.

I hope you enjoy.
