Desserts Recipes

Best Cheesecake Ever

This is a US recipe, but easily converted, and an amazing cheesecake! I make it all the time and serve with strawberries on top.

Butter Pecan Crème Brulee

This dessert is fantastic. It is a US recipe, but easily converted. When using the Splenda I used packets, which aren't available in the UK, so I estimated 1pkt - 1tablespoon of the pourable kind, and that seemed to work out alright.

Coconut Cream Pudding

This is my favorite low carb dessert: I always make it if I'm cooking for someone else and ';m trying to stay on track - they never guess it is diet food. :) Makes 4 servings. 4.9 carbs per serving.

Strawberry Cheesecake Whip

This take on a cheesecake requires only 3 ingredients and no oven - so it is a snap to make, and really REALLY yummy!

Libby's Pumpkin Pie

Just like back home, this is the recipe from the back of the can, modified for UK ingredients. A big hit with the family here & never-fail recipe.

Pumpkin Cake

This is a family favorite at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I try to make several and give them as gifts.

Cooking time: 

1 hour

Gingerbread Men

A lovely Christmas time treat.

Cranberry Pecan Bars

These make a lovely snack at the holidays and are one of my favourites. Tart and sweet at the same time.

Christmas Casserole Cookies

A dead easy christmas cookie to make that is a blending of coconut and pecans.


Lovely, crunchy, cinnamon cookies.
