My daughter and I trimmed down a recipe from a television cooking show, and these bite-size cheesecakes were the result. We shared them with neighbors and friends, and no one suspected they were light. —Lori Lewis of St. Johns, Michigan

"I loved these, but I got 24 cheesecakes out of this recipe instead of 12? Not sure why, except I put the foil muffin cup in a mini muffin pan & didn't set down in all the way. So mine are smaller but taste great and I'm thinking I can have 2!!"

"My family really enjoyed this low sugar cheesecake. I did use fresh strawberries on top instead of the filling."

"Instead of putting the pie filling on each cheesecake, you can get the same flavor while cutting some calories & making them look pretty.

Put some seedless jam into the blender or food processor & puree until smooth to make a sauce. Pour the jam into a plastic food bag & twist the top. Cut a tiny bit off one corner & drizzle over the cheesecakes, after removing the cupcake liners."

"Everyone looked these and the vanilla wafer at the bottom is a cute surprise. The only thing I'm going to do differently when I make them for Thanksgiving is subsitute real strawberry slices on the top for the pastry filling."
