Berry Cream Pie
Rich-tasting and luscious as cheesecake, but easier to make and "sugar-free."
Crust: 6 to 8 Graham Crackers
2 Tbsp. XyloSweet xylitol granules
5 Tbsp. melted butter
Filling: 1 pkg. unflavored gelatin
1¼ cups heavy cream
½ cup XyloSweet xylitol granules
1 pint strawberries, raspberries or blueberries
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese (room temp.)
Garnishing: Fresh berries
1. Crumb biscuits with xylitol and melted butter in a food processor or by hand. Press the mixture into the bottom of a pie pan or spring form baking dish.
2. Dissolve the gelatin in a small amount of cold water (1 or 2 Tablespoons)
3. Pour heavy cream and xylitol into a thick-bottomed saucepan and simmer under low heat until the xylitol is dissolved.
4. Mix the dissolved gelatin into the cream/xylitol mixture - stir well to ensure that there are no lumps or undissolved gelatin in the mixture and remove from heat. Let cool slightly.
5. Puree the berries in a food processor or blender. Stir the fruit purée and cream cheese into the heavy cream mixture and whip to the consistency of thickened cream.
