National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day

Did I mention I love mini desserts? Well, I do and I just ordered a great mini muffin pan from Williams-Sonoma so keep and eye out for mini muffin/cupcake/quiche/appetizer recipes.  I also found mini cheesecake pans at Target and since they were special for Valentine’s Day, they are in the shape of a heart.  It really can’t get much cuter than that. I know it isn’t Valentine’s day anymore, but who says you can’t say “I love you” on any day?  I think a great day to say “I love you” is on National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day!

Skinny Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake

 Ingredients:

½ cup graham cracker crumbs

1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

8 oz light cream cheese, softened

¼ cup sugar

½ tsp vanilla

¼ cup white chocolate chips

6 oz fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)

2 large egg whites

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp flour

¼ cup raspberry jam

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray pans with non-stick cooking spray.

2. In a small bowl, melt the butter and then mix in the graham cracker crumbs with a fork until they are well coated.  Divide the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the two pans and press into the coated pans. 

3. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  In a separate small bowl, melt the chocolate chips and then add to the mixture.  Gradually mix in the yogurt, egg whites (one at a time), lemon juice, and flour.  Beat until well combined. Pour the mixture evenly into both pans.

4. In a small bowl, stir jam until it is smooth.  Then, drop by small spoonfuls on top of the cheesecakes.  Using a knife, swirl the jam over the top.

5. Bake for 30 minutes or until the centers of the cheesecakes are almost set.  Mine took around 40 and then I lowered the temperature to 250 for about 15 minutes. Cool completely.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least a few hours.
