  • Next, line 2 cupcake pans (12) with cupcake liners and place 1 reduced fat vanilla wafer on the bottom of each cupcake liner. (these will be your crust!)
  • Then beat cream cheese, vanilla, sugar, and eggs until smooth. Add in your yogurt, flour, lemon juice, and lemon zest and mix well, but don't overmix!
