Vegan Cheesecake

Jordan is my youngest, and my little foodie buddie. We both love watching Food Network together. Unwrapped is his favorite show. Well, he checked out this book at his school library.

big brother Michael had to get in the picture 
He already has aspirations of being a chef. I just have this feeling he will be this world famous chef one day. A couple of years ago he told me he was going to be a cooker when he grows up. So sweet.
I knew before dinner I was going to have to help him make the dessert. He decided to make this cheesecake vegan, so his sister could enjoy the treat. Bethany (his big sister) helped him make the crust while I ran to the grocery store. When I came back we started on the filling. We used Tofutti cream cheese.
We followed the recipe minus the mixing time is a bit less with Tofutti. We baked the mini cups following the recipe.

As you can see the cheescake turned out perfectly! Jordan put the cheeries on top and served it to each of us.
The textured is a little softer with tofu. Our whole family enjoyed our yummy treat after dinner!

Ha ha, "a cooker when he grows up". Love it. He did a good job with the cheese cakes. I'd say, he's already "a cooker".
