Pineapple for Best Pineapple Cheesecake

Recipe Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust:

Butter-flavored cooking spray
1 cup finely crushed graham crackers
2 tablespoons melted butter

Pineapple Cheesecake:

1/2 cup non-fat buttermilk
1 slice white bread
1/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 large egg
2 tablespoons natural vanilla
6 packets sweetener
1/4 cup water
1 12-ounce can crushed pineapple, packed in natural juice, well drained

Recipe Directions

To prepare crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press into prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned. (Since ovens vary in temperature, check after 12 minutes. Do not allow it to over-brown.) Cool before filling.

To prepare filling: In a food processor or blender, combine everything except the pineapple. Process until smooth. Fold in crushed pineapple. Bake for 45 minutes, until set. Cool in refrigerator. Recipe makes six servings.

Recipe Note

Filling can be baked without the crust.
