This is such a smooth, rich tasting dessert, which is low fat. Fresh raspberries bits along with crunchy crust takes this desert to next level.

Baking time: 30mins

Ingredients:

For the crust:
• Biscuit digestive, crushed – 12 to 14
• Almonds coarsely crushed -1/4cup (optional)

Procedure:
• pre-heat oven at 180deg c. grease and line 8 inch baking pan.
• Mix together crushed biscuits, almonds and margarine with fork until evenly moistened. Press this mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
• Gently beat cream cheese, yogurt, corn flour, sugar until smooth and gradually beat in yogurt, vanilla essence, lemon juice.( Do not over beat)

• Bake for 25-30mins or until centre is almost set. Cool to room temperature.
• Stir the jam until smooth and spread over the surface and let it set in the refrigerator for few hours/ overnight.

• I used stevia sugar for the cream cheese layer so this can be diabetic friendly as well

  6. Looks tempting Chitra. Cheese cake is all time favourite for me. I prepared it with Strawberry sauce topping, http://jayeetacha.wordpress.com/2014/03/12/new-york-cheesecake-with-strawberry-sauce-topping/, though my version was not a low fat one. 😉
