Anyone have a good dessert for Christmas? of course sugar free. I'm now starting to really cook differently. It's not as hard as I thought it would be.

I made an awesome pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving so I am working on a recipe for a chocolate cheesecake for Christmas. If it turns out well, I will share the recipe.

Rhett, I am sorry that I didn't post this before now. I was sick and didn't make the dessert until this morning. It turned out great!

Chocolate Lovers Cheesecake

4 squares (1 oz.) unsweetened chocolate
2 - 8 oz. packages of cream cheese (softened)
1/2 C Xylitol (you can use sugar if you wish in equal amount)
1/2 t vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 - 9 inch prepared crust of your choice (I used pre-made granola crust)

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.) In the top of a double boiler, heat chocolate, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool to lukewarm.
2.In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Slowly beat in eggs, one at a time. Blend in melted chocolate. Pour filling into crust.

3.Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until filling is set. Allow to cool. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.

I bought chocolate whipped cream for my guests and I made a sugar free chocolate syrup to drizzle on my slice. I will not eat the crust so my portion will be completely sugar free.

There are some great recipes in our recipe section, you can just type in what kind of dessert you are looking for. Some have to be modified but there are some yummy ones.

Some substitution tricks I use are cutting flour and using almond flour or meal. Of course cutting the sugar, but I find that taking out a crust or a topping a lot of times can help too.

I posted a recipe for Pumpkin Panna Cotta a while back. It's a nice, light holiday recipe with only 5 grams of carb per serving. Here's the link: I also posted one for a lemon chiffon pie that is light and tasty. Here's the link to that one: That one has 17 grams of carb per serving, primarily due to the crust. The picture shown with the lemon chiffon pie recipe is NOT for a lemon chiffon pie (I didn't have a photo) but for a Lemon meringue pie that someone else added. You will not get a pie that looks like that as chiffon is creamier looking than the lemon custard in a lemon meringue pie.
