INGREDIENTS:
  • 1-pound strawberries, hulled and cut in half, divided
  • 12 ounces raspberries, divided
  • 12 ounces blackberries, divided
  • 6 ounces blueberries, divided
  • 1 ½ cups allulose or erythritol sweetener, divided
  • 1 ½ pounds cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1-pint heavy whipping cream
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

  2. In a bowl, using a spatula or hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until fluffy, then set aside. Once the berry mixture is cooled, add it to the cream cheese and mix it together until well combined. Next, using a stand mixer with the whisk attachment or a hand mixer, make the whipped cream by combining the remaining ½ cup of sweetener with the cream and beating until stiff peaks are formed.
  3. Assemble the trifle: start with a layer of the berry cream cheese mixture, then add a layer of whipped cream, then too with a combination of the remaining fresh berries. Repeat until you have three layers of each component. Top with a little more whipped cream and a few fresh mint leaves (if using). Place in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.

  • 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For Filling:

  • 2 cups cream cheese, at room temperature (16 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/2 cup chopped candied praline pecans or praline candies

For Topping:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  • Candied praline pecan halves or chopped praline candies, for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

  1. For the crust: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 7-inch round springform pan with a round of parchment paper.
  2. Toss together the cookie crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter in a small bowl until the mixture resembles wet sand. Press firmly across the bottom and halfway up the sides of the prepared pan. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes to firm up the butter.
  3. Bake until just set, golden, and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
  4. For the filling: In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large bowl if using a hand mixer), beat the cream cheese, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on high speed until smooth.
  5. Add the sour cream, flour, and salt, and beat on high speed until smooth. Add the eggs and egg yolk, one at a time, beating well and scraping down the bowl after each addition. Quickly beat in the bourbon and vanilla.

  8. Remove the pan from the pot, uncover, and gently blot away the surface moisture with a paper towel. To minimize the chance of a cracked filling, run a knife blade around the inside of the pan so that the cheesecake won’t adhere to the pan as it cools. Let it stand on the trivet until cooled to room temperature.
  9. For the topping: Stir together the sour cream and brown sugar in a small bowl. Spread over the top of the cooled cheesecake. Refrigerate until deeply chilled, at least 4 hours, and preferably overnight. Run a knife blade around the inside of the pan to loosen the cheesecake and remove the pan ring.

  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F; set oven rack to lower third position. Lightly coat bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan with butter. Wrap the bottom of the pan in heavy-duty foil; the foil should come about halfway up the sides of the pan.

Add sour cream, lemon juice, and vanilla; beat until combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating and scraping the bowl between additions.
  4. Pour filling into prepared springform pan. Set pan inside a large, shallow roasting pan. Carefully add boiling water to the toasting pan to reach halfway up sides of springform pan.
  5. Bake 45 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 325° F. Continue baking 25 minutes longer, until cake is set but still slightly wobbly in the center. Turn off oven; leave door slightly ajar and let cheesecake sit in oven 1 hour. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Run a knife around edges to release from pan. Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.
  6. Remove pan sides; slide cake (still on its springform base) onto serving plate.

*Tip Wrap the bottom of the springform pan in heavy-duty foil to assure that water doesn't soak through the seal of the pan.
