Cherry Cheesecake Bites

I receive all sorts of requests for recipes. One reader wanted me to make a lighter version of cheesecake.

Cheesecake? Nooooooo.

I am not a miracle worker and I am not willing to use low-fat versions of the ingredients to achieve a “cheesecake like” cheesecake.

I did do a small cheesecake that was appreciated. But, I have never attempted to make a BIG low calorie cheesecake – and neither should you.

Instead, do something much more innovative. Make these Cherry Cheesecake bites in all of five minutes. Cherries are in season right now (and I found them on sale at my local grocery store).

Wash them, dip them in a mixture of cream cheese and powdered sugar, dip them again in mashed graham crackers – and you got a treat that will hit that cheesecake sweet spot.

You can refrigerate these for a party later in the day. I would eat them the same day that I make them because the graham crackers will get soggy.
