    I made mine with splenda 1/4 of a cup is only 184 calories. using 1 tbsp of frozen strawberries in syrup is only 35 calories per cake, rather than 60 for cherry pie filling. Saving 45 calories per serving. Making each serving only 85 calories. - 6/26/08

    This turned out very good. I used all Neufchatel instead of the regular and fat-free cream cheese that was suggested. And I used a no-sugar added natural strawberry spread instead of pie filling. It was so easy to make. - 9/29/08

    Try half Splenda and half sugar for baking without aftertaste, and 1 egg plus 1/4 cup Egg Beaters. - 12/24/08

    Since I have to watch my Carbs, I have a similar recipe that I got from an Adkin's cookbook, I replaced the cookies with finely chopped nuts (I usually use Almonds), replaced the sugar with splenda, and replace the pie filling with fresh or frozen fruit - 7/29/09

    Wow! My husband and son really loved it. I used defrosted strawberries that I froze fresh, and added some splenda. Just a personal preference. It would be good w/o anything.

    I've been doing this for years! My favorite addition is a little bit of freshly grated lemon peel just before baking. It makes them taste a little more like an old-fashioned New York style cheesecake....yummmm! - 10/19/09

    I've been making this for years, but I use Splenda and/or Davinci Sugar Free syrups (e.g., Raspberry combined with White Chocolate, or Kahlua, or a few of the other sugar free flavors). - 1/30/09

    I've made these before/ tried to substitute just egg whites for the eggs. DON"T, it just does not work! Use the original recipe. It is fun to put different types of toppings on though (blueberries, strawberries, various types of sugar free pie fillings). These are great for parties. - 8/12/09

    I made these today, and it is a wonderful recipe! I topped them with a couple fresh raspberries and it was delightful. It took a lot of self control to stop at just one. - 12/30/08

    These were amazing little cheese cakes - yummy and easy to make! I don't think you would even have to use the vanilla wafers. I used what I had on hand. (2 - 8oz blocks of FF cream cheese) YUM! - 5/26/09
