An oldie but goody! I fon't recall where it originated. If you love Cherry cheese cake,but not all of the fat and calories. This is a great alternative. Only 8 grams of fat and 3 carbs per serving. Taste so good. You wouldn't think it was low fat.I usually make this in the summer,but great for the holidays too. Also if you aren't cutting your calories. You can use regular cream cheese,butter,and regular whipped topping in place of the light ingredients.
