LC Carrot 'N Cranberry Cheesecake
Years ago, one of my favorite cheesecakes was a recipe I got from a grocery store checkout isle $2.50 cookbook. I think it was put out by Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese but at this point that is only a guess since I only have a recipe card left with the recipe and a few notes written on it for Carrot 'N Raisin Cheesecake.
This is my version I made for a mixed High and Low Carb crowd Brunch I had today.(Everything I made was low carb of course)
LC Carrot 'N Cranberry Cheesecake (48 carb for entire cheesecake)
