Wow!! These are fantastic--they have great flavor, they're super easy to make, and they are a lot more healthful than the average cheesecake!! I used 1/3 less fat neufchatel cheese, nonfat milk, and fresh lemon juice and zest (we have a lemon tree in our backyard)--and all of that worked out fine. Honestly, I can't believe my luck in finding this recipe. I adore cheesecake, but rarely eat it because of the amount of fat and calories--and the work involved in making it. This recipe is perfect! Thanks so much for sharing it, Bev!!
