Cranberry Cheesecake Bites

I made this dessert for the first time last year and it was such a huge holiday hit, that it’s on the menu for every holiday party. Because it technically involves 3 different desserts, we jokingly call it Dessert Turducken. Enjoy!

Cookie base:

1 package of sugar cookie mix (I used Keto Queen Kreations, www.amazon.com/shop/strickley.keto) This mix is super versatile and easy to make

1 tsp Swerve brown sugar

Cinnamon

Make the cookies as directed, add in the brown sugar and cinnamon (to taste). Bake in a mini muffin pan for 6 minutes. Pull pan out of the oven and use a spoon to push down the center for the filling. Bake for another 4-6 minutes.

Cheesecake Layer:

4 oz cream cheese

1 tbsp sour cream

1 tbsp Swerve confectioners sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Blend all the above ingredients and cool until needed.

Cranberry Sauce topping:

1/2 cup cranberries

1/2 cup of water

1/4 cup chopped pecans

1 tbsp Swerve brown sugar

1 tbsp Simply Delish (www.amazon.com/shop/strickley.keto) Orange jello mix

Lemon Zest.

Bring all ingredients to a boil on the stove until the cranberries pop. Remove from heat. Smash the mix with a potato masher or spoon. Let the mix chill completely.

The last step is easy – assembly. Fill the sugar cookie cups to the brim or with tiny amounts of each topping. It’s your choice. These are a family favorite.
