I know I'm a little late posting this but I had to work this past weekend.

Cranberry and Pumpkin or Winter Squash Cheesecake

1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/4 cup vegetable glycerine or agave nectar plus 1/3 cup of the same

24 ounces cream cheese or neuchaftel cheese according to food lists,at room temperature

5 large eggs
2/3 cup sour cream
1 cup pureed pumpkin or winter squash like butternut(thick)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 recipe Faux Graham Cracker Crust for Cheesecakes(see recipebase)

Make crust and place in a 10 inch springform pan(cheesecake pan) and prebake as per instructions and allow it to cool

In a saucepan combine cranberries and 1/4 vegetable glycerine or agave nectar. Heat for 10 minutes till berries pop and sauce thickens. Let cool completely.

In a bowl beat cream cheese and 1/3 cup vegetable glycerine till smooth. Add eggs and sour cream and beat till smooth. Put 1 cup of this batter into a blender. Add squash/pumpkin purree and ginger to remaining batter and mix. Pour this batter into the cheese cake pan. Add the berrie mixture to the blender and blend. Pour this mixture ontop of the other cheesecake mixture. Using a butter knife swirl the cranberry mixture into in a spiral pattern. Bake at 325F for approximately 1 hour until the center is still somewhat jiggly. Turn off the oven and leave the oven door open for 2 hours untill the cake cools. Take out of the oven and cool completely then refrigerate.

A list of potential modifications: neuchaftel or possibly chevre(soft goat cheese) instead of cream cheese, pecans or walnuts instead of almonds in the crust, possibly yogurt for the sour cream.

I know it is kind of long and you might have to taste the batter and adjust the sweetness. I don't know a substitute for the sour cream. Maybe the other GT's can come up with one. Yogurt?

Feel free I was just waiting to see if anybody had suggestions to modify it for other genotypes.

Gatherers can have quark, which I've heard is similar to sour cream.  I'm not sure about substituting cream cheese, but I'm sure there are options.  I once made a cheesecake with goat chevre (I think that's a black dot for gatherers?), it was a bit different, but very good.

oh yum, THANKS GCG!  

I made an experimental pecan pie last night, i forgot to write down amounts used tho, only ingredients, it turned out real good too - basiclly I substituted the sugar and corn syrup with rice syrup, a little maple syrup and blackstrap molasses, and used my trusty quick spelt and almond crust.

For those of us who cannot have any dairy at all, there's a soy-based substitute by the name of "Tofutti."  It's got a couple of thickener avoids, but if you must have dessert, it's delicious in a cheesecake.

I think it's a good idea to have alternatives available with GT in mind. The Recipe Central is still a BTD thing, as is this board on the forum, so keep that in mind. Alternative ingredients can apply to anything (Atkins, Weight Watchers, whatever) so just listing them should be sufficient - the user will figure it out.

Just dandy Lola. Unfortunately I couldn't seem to modify it for O's.

any interested O with a certain GT can adapt the recipe accordingly!
