Recipe Tips

Makeover - How We Did ItWe've taken a classic cherry cheesecake and made it over by reducing the sugar, and replacing some of the cream cheese with both low-fat cottage cheese and yogurt, substituting Neufchatel cheese for the regular cream cheese and substituting egg whites for the whole eggs. These changes will save 160 calories and 25 grams of total fat, including 15.5 grams of saturated fat, per serving.

SubstituteCan't find canned tart cherries? You can use 1 cup thawed frozen sweet cherries instead. Just cook them with 1/4 cup water and the tapioca as directed, omitting the 1 Tbsp. sugar.

Special ExtraStir 1 Tbsp. Kirsch (cherry brandy) into cherry sauce before refrigerating.
