Simple and sweet!

It happens once in awhile.  A craving hits.  The craving is for cheesecake.  You've got to do something and do it fast.  Make this simple recipe and be satisfied.  Know you haven't broken your calorie bank.

Baby Cheesecakes

4 ounces Neufchatel cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup fat free ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup fat free egg substitute or 3 egg whites
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3  Biscoff or other simple biscuit-type cookies
2 teaspoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place 6 paper liners in muffin tin; set aside.  In mixing bowl, beat Neufchatel, ricotta, and sugar until smooth.  Beat in egg substitute or egg whites, lemon juice, and vanilla.

Place 1/2 Biscoff in bottom of each muffin paper.  Pour batter evenly into the 6 cups.  Bake 22 to 24 minutes, just until cheesecakes no longer jiggle.  Cool completely and refrigerate for at least one hour.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.   Makes 6 cheesecakes, 3 points plus each.
