Cheesecake Shooters

Cheesecake Shooters

12 ounces low fat cream cheese
2 Tablespoons sour cream or 1 Tablespoon milk
2 eggs
5 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup graham crackers (use GF crackers if you like)
dab of butter
frozen sliced strawberries or other fruit
whipped topping

In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, eggs, and sugar until blended well. Pour into large saucepan and cook over medium heat for 8 or so minutes or until thickened.  Be sure to stir to keep from burning.  Add vanilla toward the end so it doesn't cook out.  The cheesecake should be thick enough to stick to a spoon when you hold it up. Place in a container and put in the fridge for several hours. 

Melt butter and mix with graham crackers. Spoon some into bottom of glass. (I used new candle votive holders I found at the store.  I think they were about 4 oz.  I like them because unlike shot glasses they have a flat bottom and are able to get the spoon down to get all the goodies.) If you like you can reserve some to sprinkle on top. Top with cheesecake filling.  If it's handier for you put it in a disposable bag and pipe it in or a small cookie scoop. Next is the fruit, then whipped cream.  Sprinkle with the reserved graham crackers. Enjoy!

P.S.  I have not tried this yet with Truvia sweetner but I am sure it would be pretty good.
