Decadent Mini Cheesecake Cups

Makes about 16-18 cupcakes (you may need to double the recipe after you taste these!)

1/2 cup of crushed graham crackers
8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar or equivalent in Stevia (or other sweetener)
1 tsp vanilla
6 oz low/fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt
2 eggs
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp all purpose flour
Cooking Spray
Muffin cups

Preheat oven to 350°.

Line muffin pan with liners. Compact crushed graham crackers with a bit of cooking spray at the bottom of each well.

Beat cream cheese, sweetener and vanilla until smooth with a mixer. Mix in yogurt, eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest and flour just till it's incorporated. Scoop batter into cupcake liners until filled half way.
Bake 22 minutes or until the filling doesn't move when jiggled. Remove from pan and chill in the refrigerator before serving.

These are great for parties. I made these for a birthday party (you could probably tell by the balloons on the muffin papers). Top with sprinkles or fruit for decoration!
