Apple Pie Cheesecake Bites
Why I Love This Recipe
Finally I got to try my Norpro Mini Cheesecake Pan. I love it!
Ingredients You'll Need
For the crust
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 teaspoon apple pie spices
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
For the filling
16 ounces neufchatel cheese
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend
2 whole eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup apple pie filling, sugar free (reserve the rest of the can)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
Mix graham cracker crumbs, apple pie spice and ground ginger together. Blend in 1/4 cup yogurt. This is harder to incorporate than butter and I ended up squishing it through my clean fingers.
Put a heaping tablespoon of graham cracker mix into each little individual cheesecake cup. It presses down just perfectly with the flat bottom of a small spice jar.
Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes.
Beat cream cheese, yogurt, splenda brown sugar blend and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time until well blended. Beat in the apple pie filling. Add a good couple shakes of apple pie spice, taste, add a bit more if you like. Mix in the walnuts.
Fill each cup with cheesecake filling. Bake at 350°F for 20 - 25 minutes. Allow to cool in pan. Refridgerate. Remove from pan, top with a spoonful of leftover apple pie filling.
I had enough filling for either 4 more individual bites or a 4 inch mini cheesecake pan.
