Cooking Light AUGUST 2000

  • Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 wedge with toppings)

Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1 cup packaged chocolate cookie crumbs (such as Oreo)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, melted
  • Cooking spray
  • Filling:
  • 3 (8-ounce) blocks fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) block 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) carton low-fat sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • Toppings:
  • 1/3 cup canned crushed pineapple in juice, drained
  • 1/3 cup strawberry sundae syrup
  • 1/3 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 16 maraschino cherries, drained

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325°.

To prepare crust, combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl; toss with a fork until moist. Press into bottom of a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.

To prepare filling, beat cheeses and sour cream at high speed of a mixer until smooth. Add 1 1/2 cups sugar, banana, flour, and vanilla; beat well. Add eggs, 1 at a time; beat well after each addition.

Pour cheese mixture into prepared pan; bake at 325° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until almost set. Cheesecake is done when the center barely moves when pan is touched. Remove cheesecake from oven; run a knife around outside edge. Cool cheesecake to room temperature. Cover and chill for at least 8 hours. Top each serving with 1 teaspoon pineapple, 1 teaspoon strawberry syrup, 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup, 3/4 teaspoon pecans, and 1 cherry.
