As an alternative to sugar packed crust, sweet and tender pears encase a fruit and nut filling that's similar to cheesecake.
Up to 3 days before, prepare cheesecake mixture, but don't add the almonds.
Day before, poach pears and make sauce. Refrigerate overnight. Stuff pears and keep in the fridge for up to 6 hours. Bring pears and sauce to room temp before serving.
These are very fancy, and replace your usual Thanksgiving pie quite nicely.
I made this a couple years ago for Thanksgiving and my family has been asking for it again ever since. So I made it for this year's Thanksgiving get-together, but I lightened it up some. I could have bought fat-free or lower-fat mayo too, but it was out of my price range this week! :(
I know it sounds like a really weird combination of ingredients, but it comes out very good!
(Can't believe I neglected to say this!) Recipe is Isa's from VCTOTW. Entered for my own calorie tracking purposes back in the day. Apologies to Ms. Isa! I didn't create this fine recipe, I just like it.
Sweet, moist pumpkin cupcakes laced with dark chocolate chips with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. I use Nunaturals stevia baking blend and make 'em fat free with fruit puree rather than oil. The original, unaltered version can be found on theppk.com, I believe. Or in her cupcake book. :)
Fat-free phyllo dough layers encompass deliciously yielding, gently spiced apple chunks for a guilt free indulgence that looks spectacular! Very light on the fat and calories, using only a light spritz of canola oil between the dough sheets instead of the butter.Submitted by JO_JO_BA
