I made the best Cranberry-Raspberry Dessert

Let me say up front this is NOT my recipe. I actually found it on a site called MyLowCarbRecipes by way of Pinterest. It was one of the very best cranberry gelatin molds I've ever tasted. It was really like eating cheesecake!! My mother agreed, and she has made many a cranberry mold over her 89 years. And this is so PRETTY! Here's a pic and a copy/paste of the recipe:




Cranberry Cream Cheese Holiday Salad or Dessert
by Low Carb Recipes over at Blogspot
Sunday, November 3, 2013

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups crushed Almonds
4 1/2 tablespoons Splenda
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp salt
1 cup Splenda
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 (8 ounce) container frozen lite whipped topping, thawed
1 (6 ounce) package sugar free Jello brand raspberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 (16 ounce) package frozen raspberries
8 ounces of cranberries (chopped)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix together the almonds,1 tsp salt, 4 1/2 tablespoons Splenda and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool completely.
In a medium bowl, beat the Splenda and cream cheese until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread evenly over the cooled crust. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
In a medium bowl, stir together the gelatin mix and boiling water. Mix in frozen raspberries and chopped cranberries then stir until thawed. Pour over cream cheese mixture in pan. Refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 1 hour.

(NOTE: I used real whipped cream and fresh raspberries in mine, also only 3/4 c. Splenda)

This is definitely drool-worthy. Wow. I'm going to have to figure out the carb counts since hubby is T2 diabetic. It sure does look like dessert.

Wow, this sounds like a keeper, and I would make it just as you specified, with real whipped cream and fresh raspberries. I am saving for future holidays!

You're gonna love it, Barb! the slight tartness of the raw cranberries in the topping are offset by the sweetness of the cream cheese layer. This was so good, I'm planning on making it year round. It just become my favorite "cheesecake" type recipe! I've bought 5 bags of cranberries and froze them to hopefully get me through the "off-season".

Any guesses as to how many envelopes of Knox I would try using in place of the jello?

I'm pretty sure that 1 packet of gelatin is equivalent to a small box of jello. Since this calls for a larger box of jello, you'll probably need about 1 1/2 packets of gelatin.

Wow! My coworkers bring the high-carb version of this to work (With a pretzel/sugar/butter crust) & it's my son's fave dessert, so I am thrilled to see this low-carb version! Yayy! Thanks so much, Peggy!

I would think one would be enough, but 1˝ like Linda said might be safer.
