Recipe Notes

I love to use Wilton Bake Easy spray for the pans. Nothing sticks!

When adding the whipped cream into the cream cheese I like to put a towel over my mixture when mixing on high at first to prevent cream splatters.

To make fresh whipped cream topping, take about 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and whip on high with a few tablespoons of Swerve or preferred substitute and whip on high until soft peaks form. Spread on top of cheesecake or add a dollop before serving.
