Cranberry Cheesecake

cranberrycheesecakepie_web

Let’s consider the lowly cranberry for a moment, shall we. I say lowly for several reasons. For one, they grow on bushes low to the ground. They also grow really well in low-lying bogs or shallow standing water. They are extremely low in carbohydrate, with about only 12 grams per cup of berries. But unlike most berries, they are extremely tart and without any natural sweetness, so they aren’t many people’s first choice for healthy, low carb snacking.

But despite their “low” stature, they are perhaps one of the most beloved berries in North America. Because they ripen in the fall and are so closely associated with all things Thanksgiving, cranberries are near and dear to most Americans (and Canadians!) hearts. The appearance of fresh cranberries in grocery stores seems to signal the start of the comfort food season. Rich meals of turkey and stuffing shared with loved ones, and plenty of cranberry sauce on the side.

But cranberry sauce needn’t just be served with the main meal. Cranberries make for fabulous low carb desserts too. I for one try to find as many ways as possible to use cranberries during cranberry season. I like to work them into both sweet and savoury dishes. And for those folks who aren’t really fans of pecan or pumpkin pie (Gasp! Sacrilege!), this low carb cranberry cheesecake pie is just the thing. Shortbread cookie crust, creamy vanilla cheesecake, cranberry sauce swirl and crumb topping. It hits all the right notes for the holidays.

It’s also a great way to use up any sugar-free cranberry sauce that might be leftover once the feasting is done.

I am a pecan pie fiend. An absolute aficionado, if you will. I’ve loved it since my first bite as a child. All that gooey, caramel-y, rich pecan flavor. Even not very good pecan pie was better than most desserts. I absolutely couldn’t pass it up, especially if it was topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Warm pecan pie straight from the oven? My idea of heaven. Of course, I pass up the stuff all the time now. Having ……[Continue Reading]

Pumpkin Tiramisu

The summer has come and gone, and as always I am a little sad to see it go. But while I love the sunshine and spontaneous fun of summertime, I have a special place in my heart for fall. It may mean getting back to a regular schedule and the daily grind, but it also brings so much beauty. I love the chillier mornings and the bright changing leaves. I love that I can wake up and put on a ……[Continue Reading]
