Adapted from 'Sinfully Vegan' by Lois Dieterly. This recipe is not vegan, but uses goat cheese in place of cream cheese. I've made several variations on this theme, such as minty chocolate chip and pumpkin cheesecake. Whenever I run into an ingredient that I avoid, I just substitute, making sure that the consistency of the final product is similar.
