Lowfat Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Squares Recipe


Lowfat Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Squares

1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (4 crackers, each 5" x 2 1/1")
nonstick vegetable spray
2 - 8 oz packages nonfat cream cheese (can also use lowfat or Neufchatel)
1 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups nonfat sour cream
3T sugar
2 pints strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 350F. (325 F for dark pans). Lightly spray bottom and sides of a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Sprinkle bottom with crumbs; set aside.

Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese, cottage cheese and sugar in large bowl until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until just blended after each addition. Mix in vanilla extract. Pour filling into crust. Bake cheesecake for about 40 minutes or until mixture is almost set. The cheesecake center will move only slightly when shaken. Remove cheesecake from oven; maintain oven temperature.

Mix sour cream and sugar in a small bowl. Spread topping evenly over hot cheesecake. Bake 5 minutes. Transfer cheesecake to a rack and cool a few minutes.

Arrange fruit on sour cream topping as desired. To make the cheesecake look like an American flag, face the pan sideways (13 inches across). Place blueberries in upper left hand corner, approximately 5 blueberries across and 4 blueberries down. This will create the blue background for the stars. Place 5 single rows of strawberries across for the red stripes. Cover and chill 6-8 hours.
