Servings 1


  • 4 Tbsp Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp Splenda or sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Sour Cream
  • 1 Tbsp Butter melted
  • 1 1/2 Sheet Graham Cracker


  • In a small mixing bowl whisk your egg, vanilla, sour cream and sweetener until well blended.

  • Then add in your softened cream cheese and mix until fully blended. Set aside and let rest while making the crust.
  • Crush graham crackers in a food processor (I use a little mini chopper one) or by hand until you have fine crumbs. Then add in the melted butter and mix.

  • Grease an 8 oz ramekin with butter. Be sure to get the bottom and the sides. Then pack the crumb-butter mixture into the bottom of the ramekin. Pack well.

  • Pour your cheesecake mixture in

  • Put it in the microwave for the first cook time of 40 seconds. Then when done, allow a second or two for the cheesecake to lower back down. Then cook again for 15-second intervals until you have cooked it for a total of 1:55. Allow a second or two rest in between each cooking interval.
    DO NOT cook for the whole time all at one time, it needs to be intervals.
  • Place on counter and allow to slightly cool before placing in the fridge to cool the rest of the way as it tastes best fully chilled.
