Ingredients:

For the Crust:

  1. Graham Cracker Crumbs (1 cup): Begin the culinary adventure with a delightful graham cracker crust, providing the perfect foundation for the layers of flavor to come.
  2. Unsalted Butter (2 tablespoons, melted): Elevate the crust with a touch of unsalted butter, creating a decadent and buttery texture that complements the sweetness.
  3. Granulated Sugar (2 teaspoons): Introduce a subtle sweetness to the crust, balancing the flavors and enhancing the overall indulgence.

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  1. Fat-Free Cream Cheese (8 oz or 1 cup, softened): Embrace a lighter approach with fat-free cream cheese, ensuring a velvety texture without compromising on taste.
  2. Non-Fat Greek Yogurt (1/2 cup): Add a creamy and tangy dimension to the filling with non-fat Greek yogurt, enhancing the cheesecake’s overall richness.
  3. Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup): Infuse a controlled sweetness to the filling, creating a harmonious balance that aligns with your Weight Watchers plan.
  4. Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon): Introduce a subtle yet aromatic note with vanilla extract, elevating the cheesecake’s flavor profile.
  5. All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup): Achieve a smooth consistency in the filling with the addition of all-purpose flour, ensuring a delightful and well-textured cheesecake.
  6. Large Egg (1): Bind the ingredients together with a large egg, contributing to the creamy and luscious texture of the cheesecake.

For the Cherry Topping:

  1. No-Sugar-Added Cherry Pie Filling (1 can, 21 oz): Embrace the sweetness of cherries without added sugars, crowning your cheesecake jars with a burst of fruity indulgence.

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Crust: In a mixing bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar. Ensure an even coating of the crumbs with butter and divide the mixture among the jars, pressing it down to form a decadent crust at the jar’s bottom.
  2. Create the Cheesecake Filling: In a separate mixing bowl, beat softened fat-free cream cheese and non-fat Greek yogurt until smooth. Add granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and flour, stirring until the mixture achieves a velvety consistency. Incorporate the egg without overmixing, maintaining the ideal texture for your cheesecake.
  3. Assemble and Bake: Spoon the cheesecake filling over the graham cracker crust in each jar. Place the jars in a baking dish and add water to reach halfway up the sides of the jars, preventing cracking. Bake at 325°F for 25-30 minutes until set but still slightly jiggly in the center.
  4. Cool and Refrigerate: Allow the cheesecakes to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours until fully chilled and set, ensuring a delectable texture upon serving.
  5. Top with Cherry Pie Filling: Once chilled, crown each jar with a generous spoonful of no-sugar-added cherry pie filling, adding a burst of fruity sweetness to your cheesecakes.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Present these individual Weight Watchers Cherry Cheesecake Jars with pride, savoring each spoonful of the creamy, indulgent delight you’ve created.
