Number of Servings: 8


    Keebler graham cracker crust

    2 packages Neufchatel Cheese
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/8 tsp salt
    1 tablespoon flour
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup light sour cream

    1 can cherry pie filling (separate out the cherries from the syrup)
    1/2 cup light sour cream


You can make your own graham cracker crust, or just use a premade one from Keebler.

Let the cream cheese sit out to soften.
Beat it and add the other ingredients. Add the sugar slowly and then add the eggs at the end, one at a time.
Bake for 45 min - 1 hour at 350.
Cool for 1 hour on rack.
Cool for 3 hours in refrigerator.

Combine 1/2 cup light sour cream with 1/2 cup cherry pie filling syrup. Spread over the cheesecake. Place cherries (without any sour cream) in a circular pattern, or just heap them up in the middle of the cheesecake.

    This recipe was easy and delicious. My son made it for his first time making cheesecake. This was the only dessert at Thanksgiving dinner that was gone before the evening was over. We didn't use the cherry topping. It was still great plain. - 12/8/07

    Soooooooo good! I made a chocolate version (stirred in hershey's special dark cocoa powder, and used a premade oreo crust). Also, I reduced calories by using fat free cream cheese and splenda. Still not low-cal, but soooo heavenly, for when you need a real treat!!!! - 10/18/07
