For the gals out there that like to wash their sorrows in a cheese cake knosh with friends you can use low fat ice cream and bring it in at less net calories per slice than cheese cake, without sacrificing the richness as it slides down your gullet between the “woe is me”, and the “The I’d like to cut his $#@ off” comments at the party. It also goes well with all manner of ‘Chick Flicks’ or black and white oldies on the couch. Regardless of all that it will also rapidly become a favorite of your kids as well. So Do Enjoy….
