Mini Raspberry Amaretto Cheese Cakes

(adapted for the Sun Oven from Weight Watchers In One Pot)

Ingredients

1/2 cup amaretti cookie crumbs (or ginger snaps)

1 tablespoon butter, softened

12 teaspoons raspberry fruit spread

2 (8-ounce) packages Neufchâtel cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 large egg white

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Line two 6-cup muffin tins with silicone baking molds or spray with cooking spray and line each cup with a 2 x 6-inch strip of foil, allowing the foil to extend above the rim.

In a small bowl, mix together the cookie crumbs and the butter until well combined. Press 2 teaspoons of the mixture onto the bottom of each cup; refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Spread 1 teaspoon of the fruit spread over the crumb mixture in each cup. Keep refrigerated while preparing the filling.

Put the cheese in a medium bowl and use an electric mixture to beat until very smooth, about 2 minutes. Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until fluffy, about 2 more minutes. Beat in the egg, egg white, zest, and vanilla extract. Divide the cheese filling evenly among the cups. Bake in the Sun Oven until the edges are set and the centers jiggle slightly, about 30 minutes. If the pans do not fit side by side use a rack to separate them and cross stack them in the cooking chamber; the top pan will cook slightly faster. Cool the cakes in the pans on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Cove with foil refrigerate until chilled and set, at least 4 hours and up to 2 days. Pop cheese cakes out of the molds or us the foil to lift them from the pans.
