Yummy Vegan Cheesecake

What you need: 

16 cinnamon graham crackers, crumbled
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1 tablespoon light Karo syrup
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
16 ounces vegan cream cheese (I use Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese)
1/3 cup sugar
4 egg substitutes (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0) (I use Ener-g)
1 teaspoon vanilla
juice of 1 lemon
vegan chocolate syrup (I use Ah!Laska)
fresh raspberries, to serve

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. For crust: Combine graham crackers, margarine, Karo syrup, and flour in a bowl. Mix by hand and press firmly into a round pan.
2. For filling: Combine cream cheese, sugar, egg substitutes, vanilla, and lemon juice in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Pour onto crust.
3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until set (doesn't jiggle when you move the pan). Let cool. Place in refrigerator and chill for 12 hours. Drizzle with vegan chocolate syrup and add fresh raspberries.
You may use any kind of topping, such as strawberries in syrup, chocolate, vegan whipped cream, etc.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I gave this 4 stars, because it was very good, but needs some tweaking. I would halve the lemon because it was very tart. I mixed the Ener-G with water (not sure if I was supposed to or not), but I think that made it too watery and thus too creamy (not firm enough) in the middle of the cheesecake. Maybe I'll use less next time. I used a premade Keebler shortbread crust. It was really good, and I'll post the results once I perfect it. Thanks!!
