Another great low carb contender for your holiday dessert table. This grain-free keto cranberry cheesecake pie makes a perfect Thanksgiving or Christmas treat.

Dang, I am hungry. I am sitting here, thinking about this dessert, writing about this dessert, editing photos of this dessert, and I am now ravenously hungry. I wasn’t hungry when I started but this is what happens when you look at and write and think and dream about food all day. You create hunger out of nothing, need out of want. It’s hard not to want to head to the kitchen and whip up another low carb cranberry cheesecake pie and then plow your face right into the middle of it. But I suppose it’s an occupational hazard. My job is to make YOU hungry for the recipe that’s staring you in the face. And it’s just collateral damage if I happen to make myself hungry in the process.

Okay, I swear it isn’t as bad as all that. But I wouldn’t mind having another big slice of this in front of me. I am on such a tear right now, creating recipes at an alarming rate for both my cookbook and the blog, and this was one that stands out to me. I am proud of them all, of course, but I loved this one. I gave half of it away to my next-door neighbour since I had about 3 more desserts to make that week. But DUDE it was good stuff. At first, I thought my cranberry sauce might be too tart. And it was rather tart, as cranberry sauce goes. But combined with the creamy vanilla cheesecake and the shortbread-like crust, it was holiday dessert perfection.

A little shout out to the lovely conventional blogger who inspired this delicious low carb Cranberry Cheesecake Pie. Hats off to you, Bake or Break!

      Argh, I hate when brands change the links on me… THANKS for your detective work!


  1. Carol L Xenos says

    Bummer, no access to this recipe…


  2. Elaine says

    I made the cranberry sauce in the fridge, and I have some 5” tart pans I want to use. Should I use 2or 3? How would I adjust the time?


    • Carolyn says

      You need to figure out the area of a 5 inch circle vs. the area of a 10 inch circle. There are online calculators.

      Since I didn’t not bake mine that way, I can’t guide your timing. Obviously it would be less time…


      • Elaine says

        This is too good a recipe to invite a fail….I’ll just cook it your way in the 10”. Your recipes are so awesome, just the way they are! Thanks!
