Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

CinnApple CheeseCupCakes

I've been wanting to make these for a few days and finally got around to it.....and boy am I glad!! I'm sure they're really delicious when chilled, but I just couldn't wait to try one!! These are really easy to make and not alot of ingredients. 

CinnApple CheeseCupCakes
Makes 12 CupCakes
1 CupCake = 4 PointsPlus™


CRUST:
1 cup crushed low fat graham crackers (8 sheets)
1/4 cup light butter, melted
pinch of salt & cinnamon

FILLING:
2 (8 oz. each) packages Neufchatel cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBSP cinnamon

 
Preheat oven to 325ยบ. Line muffin pan with papers.

For the Crust:
Mix together all crust ingredients until moistened. Put 1 TBSP of mixture into each paper in muffin pan. Press down with a spoon or measuring cup. Bake for @9 minutes. Cool in pan on rack.



 
 
 
 


For the Filling:
Mix together the cream cheese and Splenda granulated. Add in egg substitute, applesauce, vanilla & cinnamon. Spoon into muffin papers, almost to the top.



 
Bring 4 cups of water to boil. Pour into a large baking dish and place on the bottom shelf of the oven to create steam in the oven. Place muffin pan ona shelf above that.


Bake @25 minutes or until set.

MY SPIN: The next time I make these I think I will dice/mince some fresh apple and add that to the filling. Or perhaps make some homemade applesauce and top the cuppies with that.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
