Preparation for Low Fat and Healthy New york-style cheesecake Recipe:

Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Combine cracker crumbs, 2
tablespoons sugar, and margarine; stir well. Firmly press crumb mixture
evenly into bottom of pan. Set aside. Combine yogurt and flour in a large
mixing bowl; beat mixture at low speed of an electric mixer until well
blended. Add cream cheese; beat at medium speed until smooth. Add 1 cup
sugar, egg product, grated lemon rind, lemon juice, and vanilla; beat well.
Spoon over crumb mixture. Bake at 300s 1 hour (center will be soft but will
firm when chilled). Turn off over, and partially open oven door; leave
cheesecake in oven 30 minutes. Combine sour cream and 1 tablespoon sugar;
spread over cheesecake. Let cool in oven an additional 30 minutes with oven
door partially opened. Remove from oven, and let cool to room temperature
on a wire rack. Cover and chill 8 hours. If desired, garnish with a lemon
rose and mint sprigs.
Tips for success:
1. Process cheese mixture just until blended.
Processing longer incorporates too much air into the batter.
2. When baking is complete, turn oven off and leave cheesecake in oven for
30 minutes with oven door partially opened. Then add sour cream topping.
3. Carefully run a small paring knife around inside edge of pan once
cheesecake is removed from oven. This helps release cheesecake from pan as
it cools and shrinks, so there's less cracking on top.
