Not enough cream cheese for cheesecake?

So I have 340 g of cream cheese and I wanted to make a cheesecake for the first time, but when I look at recipes it seems like you need a bit more to make it. So now I feel like I bought cream cheese for no reason, and I don't want to put it on my bagels either. 

I don't mind a small batch of cheesecake, but do you guys have any suggestions for any recipes? I need about 110 g more of cream cheese. Any small recipe is fine for me too. Drop your recipes and tips down below! Thanks!


I could cut the recipe in half but I don't have a pan small enough for the batter. 

Update 2:

Also I'm 4 ounces short so can I use greek yogurt or something?

    You could use the recipe that you have already, just cut down the ingredient amounts by a third, then make a smaller or thinner cheesecake.

    You can buy more cream cheese, or cut the recipe and use half the ingredients called for

    Goodness gracious, just cut the ingredients in half and make a smaller one.

    Not rocket science is it?

    next time you buy stuff for a recipe, look at the recipe first so you know exactly what you need...As to recipes, can you split your recipe in half?
