Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake

From Skinny Taste, this "diet" cheesecake is pretty good! Don't be fooled. It isn't the thick monster cake you get from the Cheesecake factory, but I will be making this again and often, trying out different flavors. (Click the skinny taste link to see apicture of hers...I guarentee you will try it once you see the picture.)

non stick cooking spray
1/2 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 Tbsp light butter, softened
8 oz package reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
6 oz fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt
2 large egg whites
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 cup strawberry jam (or whatever you like)

Heat of to 350. Coat and 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray.

Mix together graham cracker crumbs and butter with a fork until evenly moistened. Press evenly into bottom of prepared pan.

Gently beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth using an electric mixer. Gradually beat in fat free yogurt, egg whites, lemon juice, and flour. Do not over beat. Pour over graham cracker crust.

Stir jam until smooth. Drop by small spoonfuls over surface of filling. Using a knife, swirl jam gently through to create marble effect.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool to room temperature. Chill a few hours in the refrigerator.

This makes 9 servings.
