This is a recipe that is lower in calories, fat and carbs. How can this be with a cheesecake? Try this recipe and see for yourself!

1 cup 5% ricotta cheese
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 medium egg
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

(I made this last night and I think I will add 1/2 a tsp of lemon juice to give it a little tang next time- it was really good and I will fix it again but it needs a little lemon juice- Just my two cents! :)

Topping: Fresh Fruit of your choice

In a food processor, combine ricotta chese, cottage cheese and sugar:puree until smooth. Beat in egg. Blend in sour cream, corn starch and vanilla until well mixed. Divide batter among muffin cups. Set muffin tin in larger pan and pour in enough hot water to come half way up sides. Bake 30-35 at 350 degrees or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from water bath; cool on wire rack. Chill.

Serve with frest fruit of your choice on top.
