Apple sauce cheesecake (motts)

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
12 ounces Lowfat cream cheese; softened
½ cup Sugar
½ cup Egg substitute OR 2 eggs
1½ cup Applesauce; divided
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 \N 9 inch graham cracker crust*
¼ cup Graham cracker crumbs OR chopped nuts; optional
10 ounces Frozen raspberries in syrup; thawed
⅓ cup Red currant jelly
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
16 ounces Canned peach slices; drained OR 1 1/2 cup fresh peach slices


Heat oven to 350F.

In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in 1 cup apple sauce and vanilla. Pour into graham cracker crust.

Bake at 350F for 40 to 45 minutes or until center is just set.

Gently spread remaining apple sauce over cheesecake. Cool; refrigerate several hours.

TOPPING: Drain raspberries; reserve syrup. Set raspberries aside. Add enough water to syrup to equal ¾ cup.

In small saucepan, combine syrup, jelly and cornstarch; stir to dissolve cornstarch. Cook and stir over medium heat until clear, thickened and jelly is melted. Stir in raspberries. Chill.

Arrange peach slices on cheesecake; drizzle with some raspberry sauce. Just before serving, sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs. Serve cheesecake slices with additional Raspberry Peach Topping.

TIP: *To prepare in 9-inch spring form pan, make filling 1½ times the recipe. Bake at 350F for 60 to 65 minutes.

Notes: Pantry: Mott's Regular Apple Sauce. Cheesecakes are an ideal make-ahead dessert. They are their peak 24 to 36 hours after baking.
