Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a stand mixer, combine milk and cream cheese on low to medium-low speed until smooth. Sprinkle in cornstarch making sure it is evenly distributed. Add eggs, egg beaters and vanilla and combine on low speed until smooth - scraping down side if necessary.
  3. Pour into pie crust, but don't go over the edge (it will puff) and bake for 40-45 minutes until edges are just brown or tiny cracks appear on edges of cake and center does not jiggle when you shake the pan. Don't open the oven door more than necessary! IF you have extra filling (I usually do), spray ramekin with non-stick spray and bake 40 minutes, checking every 5 minutes after 30 minutes has gone by.
  4. Turn off oven and prop door open and allow cheesecake to cool for 30-45 minutes in oven. Then cool on wire rack completely.
  5. Cool another 2 hours in fridge, top with light cherry pie filling before serving. Store in fridge.
