Ramekin Cheesecake


Sometimes we just want cheesecake.

(I over filled this one! yummy)

But who has time or the patience to bake a whole cheesecake every time you have that craving.

So I give you the Ramekin cheesecake.

Bigger than those cheesecake bites that you know you will devour in minutes, and smaller than a whole cheesecake that you feel guilty indulging in.

Cheesecake; 4 ramekins

1 pk 1/3 less fat cream cheese; softened
1 egg
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
1 tbs vanilla
1 tbs lemon juice
2/3 cup sugar

Healthy Crust
3 graham crackers, crushed
1 tbs applesauce (or butter)
1/2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven 375 F. 

Crush 3 crackers with fork. 
Add applesauce and cinnamon and mix well. 
Press cracker mixture into the bottom of the ramekins. 

Soften cream cheese either by leaving it out until room temp or place in the microwave for 10 sec on each side. 
With a stand mixer/hand mixer/kitchen aid etc. whip cream cheese and egg together until smooth. Add yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and lemon and mix until VERY smooth. 

Equally distribute cheesecake mixture between the 4 ramekins. 
Place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 min.
