Sugar Free No Bake Cheesecake Pie!!

Last weekend was 4th of July and some family friends, my son, and I all headed over the river to Winstar Casino to have a pre-fireworks tailgate party. It was immensely fun!! We all brought food. We had a little wine, hung out, chatted, and laughed. The food was excellent. Sue brought a little grill and some sausages. Monty and Mel brought some homemade hummus and venison burgers and tomatoes from their garden. YUMMMM! and I brought chicken salad, a gingery jicama salad, and a sugar free, no bake cheesecake pie. The pie was absolutely delicious!!! I would show you a picture of it, but we ate it too fast!!!! It's basically pretty healthy and even better, quick and easy! So, I'm sharing it with you here.

Here's what you need:

1 cup finely ground graham cracker crumbs

1 cup pecan sandies cookies

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons xylitol

8 ounces cream cheese

1/3 cup xylitol

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

Here's what you do with all that stuff:

1.In a bowl, mix together crushed cookies and graham crackers with melted butter and the 3 tablespoons xylitol.

2.Press into a 9 inch pie pan. Place in refrigerator until ready for use.

3.In another bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/3 cup of xylitol and lemon juice.

4.Whip cream, and fold into cream cheese mixture.

5.Spread into pie crust.

6.Freeze for 1 hour, covered with foil.

7.Place in refrigerator 30 minutes before serving.
It went fast cuz it was goooooood!!!! I have to say that it's not TOTALLY  sugar free because there is sugar in the graham crackers and cookies for the crust. You could probably substitute ground nuts in place ot the cookies to make it even healthier. I may try that next time I make it. Its a great, summery dessert that's not quite as heavy as a regular, baked cheesecake. Do yourself a favor and make one tonight. If you do, let me know how you liked it!!
