  1. Line 12 muffin pans with paper baking liners. Place 1 vanilla wafer in the bottom of each liner.
  2. Process the cottage cheese in a blender or food processor until smooth. Combine the cottage cheese with the Neufchatel in a medium bowl and beat at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add the sugar and mix well. Add the eggs, lime rind, lime juice, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Spoon the cheese mixture evenly over the vanilla wafers. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until the cheesecakes are almost set. (Do not over bake.) Let the cheesecakes cool completely on a wire rack. Remove from the pans and chill thoroughly.
  3. Spread the vanilla yogurt evenly over the cheesecakes, and top each one with 3 kiwifruit slices.

These individual cheesecakes got rave reviews at a party I recently attended. They turned out beautiful and delicious. And no one felt guilty eating them.

I took it to a Easter family get-together and it was a hit! I added a bit more lime juice than called for (I juiced a whole lime) and a couple of more T. of sugar. It's hard to believe you're e...

This recipe was EXCELLENT. My husband said it's definately a keeper and my two little girls each had seconds. I made some significant changes: I had made homemade cottage cheese yesterday...

Hubby loves cheesecake, but didn't want something too "decadent" for Father's Day meal. Stumbled upon this in my recipe box - so glad! My only changes next time - omit lime rind (couldn't grate ...

Very easy and can make it very elegant, by serving on individual dishes, and some fruit garnish. I chiiled the cakes, and then took off the wrappers, and served.

I did these for a small Spa Party I hosted. I really liked them. They were easy, pretty, and they tasted good.
