Somewhere Over The Rainbow Cheesecake

Last month I celebrated my 32nd birthday party. It was wonderfilled! We had a Mad Hatter's Tea themed party, for which I made some of my favorite tea time treats. Everything from Pineapple Cream Tea Sandwiches, to Asparagus & Onion Phyllo Wrapped Quiches, to my Somewhere Over The Rainbow Cheesecake. Not a crumb was left behind!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow Cheesecake

1 14oz Package Mori-Nu Firm Silken Tofu
1 8oz Package Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
2/3 cup Cane Sugar
1/8 cup Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp Cornstarch
Assorted Food Coloring
1 9in Graham Cracker Crust

Preheat Oven to 350. Combine silken tofu and cream cheese in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add sugar and allow to blend for 4-5 minutes. Whisk together the lemon juice, vanilla, and cornstarch. Blend cornstarch mixture into tofu until very smooth.

Divide mixture into several small bowls and add a few drops food coloring to each.

Layer the cheesecake mixture into the crust and bake for 45 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes and then in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
