I just used a Brownie Mix to make the Brownies and I tried out my new Brownie Maker and it takes about the same time to bake as it does in the oven but you don’t have to heat up the kitchen.

Greek Yogurt Cheese Cake Flags

This Cheesecake Crust is adapted from allrecipes and the cheesecake is too.

Greek Yogurt Cheesecake

*1 1/2 packages of Graham Cracker crushed
*8 tablespoons of Butter melted
*1/4 cup of sugar

Mix together and press into a 9 x 13 pan lined with Foil, to help lift out cheesecake to cool after baking, and spray the foil with Pam. Bake at 375*F. for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven and top with Cheesecake Filling and Bake, see below.

Cheesecake Filling

*2 packages of Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese or low fat Cream Cheese, I used one of each at room temperature
*3/4 cup Sugar
*3 large Eggs, at room temperature
*2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
*2 teaspoons Vanilla
*1/4 teaspoon Salt

Pour filling into pre-made crust. Using a roasting pan place cheesecake in roasting pan, fill roasting pan with 1/2 inch water and bake for 25 minutes at 325*F. Remove Cheesecake from oven and lift out the cheesecake with the foil to put on a cooling rack to cool. Cut into rectangular shapes. I cut into eight flag shapes.

Decorate just before serving.

For Decorating:

* I used 32 Blueberries, if yours are small you might need more.
*Seedless Raspberry Jelly, or we used homemade Strawberry Coulis.
