A light and sweet dessert that’s perfect for a holiday party or festive get-together!

Yield: 36 Mini Cheesecakes

Ingredients:

3/4 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
1 (8 ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
3 large eggs, separated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (6 ounce) container fresh raspberries (optional)
Topping:
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tablespoon SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly spray 3 (12-cup) miniature muffin tins with vegetable cooking spray. Sprinkle each muffin cup with 1 teaspoon of chocolate wafer crumbs. Turn pans upside down, and discard excess. Set aside.

Beat cream cheeses at high speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add 1/2 cup SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, and beat until at medium speed with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks and vanilla; beat at low speed just until blended.

Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into cream cheese mixture; spoon into prepared pans.

Bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon topping on each cheesecake. Bake for 5 additional minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Chill thoroughly before removing from pan.

Topping directions:

Combine sour cream, 1 tablespoons of SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, and vanilla extract.

Garnish with fresh raspberries, if desired.
