Talking party

We are having a house warming party on Saturday - we have about 70 people coming - everyone is bringing their own meat to BBQ - and I have asked a few people to bring desserts & salads.

I am going to make this cheesecake - and will try it with a pecan nut base - as in William Bahn's famous peanut butter pie recipe.

I'll let you know how it goes....

Lucy

At the risk of repeating what everyone else has said, this recipe is wonderful! I made it yesterday for our Buffy party and it was a big hit. I used lemon jello and replaced a little of the water with lemon juice. Made the almond crust from Karen's Vancouver Cheescake recipe, and topped it with a few sliced strawberries. According to Fitday a 1/8 slice had only 6 grams of net carb! Whoo-ee!

I couldn't get fresh strawberries at this time of year so I had to use frozen (unsweetened of course). I wish I had layered the strawberries in the middle of the cheesecake, because the thawed strawberries were a little wet & that would have been more attractive blending into the middle than running all over the top. But it still tasted great.

I brought the leftovers into work today so my Atkins buddy can have some. I'm definitely going to make this again!!

Sarah

PS: Lucy, where do I find this famous peanut butter pie recipe? I browsed through this forum but I didn't see it.

Sarah - go to the orange bar at the top - recipes - then on the left hand side go to "More low carb recipes from our readers' Then in that section go to desserts. Just make sure you reduce the amount of Splenda suggested otherwise it will be too sweet.

If you read Wbahn's journal - you will find that he has "tweaked" the recipe to be better

Enjoy

Karen
The only conversion of ingredients I did was the cream - use thick cream where it says whipping cream. I didn't get a chance to have any cheesecake - it all disappeared in a minute I guess it was nice. I was given a recipe for a strawberry coulis to put on the top - (which I forgot to make )
Actual recipe is: 1 cup raspberries/strawberries
1 tsp reduced sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tblsp water

Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes. Blend or puree.
I have no idea of the carb count but I have it on good authority it is very low

Enjoy!
Lucy

Question

I'm not sure what the SF Jello is? Are you talking about plain gelatin? The only SF jello I know of is flavored, not plain?

Thanks!

In low-carb lingo, SF means sugar free.

Hi Karen,

Sorry, I didn't ask the question correctly. I know its sugar free, but I'm not aware of a plain sf jello. It seems they only have flavors like cherry, lime, etc. I'm not sure what to use in the recipe. I was wondering if its plain knox gelatin, or do you use a sf flavor?

Thanks!

Hi Dragonfly7,

I have always used flavoured gelatin, orange, lime, raspberry, etc. In Canada we are somewhat limited in the flavours available, unlike in the U.S. If you want to experiment with unflavoured gelatin & post the results, that'd be great.

Cheers,

Question Confused

Isn't cottage cheese not on Atkins? I thought it had too many carbs??

Thank you Ruth and all the others,

I've been looking all over for the famous jello cheesecake recipe.

I just found this thread and now have all versions of the cheesecake printed and ready to try.

My biggest problem will be to leave the servings in the freezer!

Off to the store to buy the ingredients.

Default freezing

I have the problem when freezing.. I take it out and let it defrost but then it tastes funny.. it seems to be lumpy like the cottage cheese was.. when I don't freeze it .. it is smooth and just yum..

Another variation is to up some Jello on the top... and let it set.. YUM!
