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 live in Oklahoma and looking for a store or online to purchase Swerve in larger quantity than 12 oz. Is there a way to buy it in several pounds to save on cost. I really like this product and being a diabetic, feel it is so much healthier, but $7.99 for 12oz is more than I can spend to do ALL of my baking, etc. I live within driving distance of Tulsa, OK or can order online. Thank you for your help.
