non stick cooking spray
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Add ¼ cup heavy cream, lemon juice, vanilla extract and lemon zest; beat on medium-high speed 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Divide cream cheese mixture into prepared cups. Add 1 teaspoon preserves to each cup; with wooden skewer or toothpick, swirl preserves into cream cheese mixture to create marbled effect. Freeze cheesecakes at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Makes 24 cheesecakes.

3. In medium bowl, with mixer on medium-high speed, beat remaining 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and 1/2 cup heavy cream 2 minutes or until soft peaks form. Makes about 1 cup.
