Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 50 minutes

Cool: 1 hour, plus 3 hours chill time

Ingredients:

1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature 


2 cups light/low-fat ricotta cheese

3/4 cup canned pure pumpkin


1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt


1/2 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1/4 cup all-purpose flour 


1/4 cup Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener; see HG FYI)


2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. cinnamon


1/2 tsp. baking powder 


1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 sheet (4 crackers) low-fat honey graham crackers, lightly crushed

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9" springform cake pan with nonstick spray. Wrap foil around the bottom of the pan to prevent condensation from dripping into the oven.

In a large bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add ricotta cheese and pumpkin. With an electric mixer set to medium speed, beat until smooth, 1 - 2 minutes. Continue to beat while gradually adding all remaining ingredients except graham crackers. Beat until smooth, another 1 - 2 minutes.

Evenly pour mixture into the cake pan. 



Bake until firm and light golden brown, about 50 minutes. 


Let cool completely, about 1 hour. 


Refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours. 



Sprinkle with crushed graham crackers. Release springform, and slice.

HG FYI: Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener is about twice as sweet as sugar. If using a no-calorie granulated sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar instead of Truvia, double the amount called for in this recipe.
