Secret #1: Portion Control
Portion control is perhaps the hardest thing about eating healthfully in the holiday season, when desserts are everywhere and the temptation is to slice generously. Single-serving cheesecakes bake in muffin tins, so there's no guesswork. Our individual desserts don't feel skimpy, except with their numbers: Each has about half the calories and one-fourth the sat fat of a typical serving of caramel cheesecake.
Baking individual desserts in a muffin pan is the smart way to pre-portion a rich treat. Each serving is still full of big sweet-salty pleasures.
