Lite Bite Cheesecakes

When you are trying to cut back on calories, but you REALLY need a little, tiny bite of something sweet, THESE are the perfect thing.  They satisfy your craving and the recipe is small enough that it only makes a small amount so hopefully to rest of the family will gobble them up and there won’t even be leftovers to temp you later!  This is NO SUBSTITUTE for the super-rich NY cheesecakes that you know and love, but….it’s a mighty good treat!

LITE BITE CHEESECAKES

.

8 ounces low fat cream cheese, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mini Vanilla Wafers (about 18-20)

1/2 cup SPLENDA

1 egg, beaten

.

Mix the cream cheese and SPLENDA together.  Add your vanilla and egg and whip until smooth.  In a mini muffin tin, place a mini Vanilla Wafers in each tin (round side down).  Spoon the cream cheese mixture into each cup until full.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Slide a sharp knife around the edges of each one to remove and place on a rack to cool.  Top each one with a tiny piece of fruit, or serve just plain if you wish.  Refrigerate any leftovers in a covered container.

BONE APPETIT!
