Sophia’s Sicilian Gluten-Free Cheesecake – Golden Girls Inspired Recipe

If you’re a Golden Girls fan like me, then you know that Rose, Dorothy, Blanche, and Sophia’s favorite treat is cheesecake! And who can blame them? Cheesecake is pretty much the best dessert ever! Since I have been a fan for so long of the Golden Girls, I just had to make a recipe inspired by them! So I created a cheesecake that’s Sicilian style – to pay homage to Sophia Petrillo’s hometown. And the best part? This cheesecake is very low in sugar and is gluten-free!
