These raspberry jello squares made with cream cheese are easy to make and are a nice sugar-free, low-carb dessert. If you want to go "super-simple", they can be made without the pecan crust, but I think it adds a lot to the dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small package raspberry sugar-free geletin dessert such as Jello brand (~.3 oz)
  • 1½ cups boiling water
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Sugar substitute equal to ¼ cup sugar (zero carb sweetener such as liquid sucralose preferred)
  • pinch salt
  • 6 oz cream cheese cut up into pieces
  • ¼ teaspoon orange extract
  • 1 ½ cups fresh or unsweetened frozen raspberries

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 F

1. Dissolve raspberry geletin in boiling water.

2. Process pecans in a food processor and process to a coarse meal.

3. Add butter, salt, and sweetener and process until smooth

4. Press the pecan mixture into the bottom of a 9X9 square pan

5. Bake for 8-11 minutes, until lightly brown (watch carefully when it gets close)

6. When geletin mixture is cooled to the point where you can comfortably stick your finger into it, add the orange extract and cream cheese and blend. You can use a stick blender, food processor, or regular blender.

7. Add 1 cup of the berries to mixture and pour into pan over the pecan crust.

8. Cool in the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes, until mixture is thickening but not set. Sprinkle the other half cup of raspberries across the top.

9. Cool until completely set, and cut into squares.

Raspberry Chiffon Squares, Guest ladyg27

This was a simple, easy and great tasting dessert to make. I made it for my family who wasn't watching their carbs like we are and they loved it. I will make this again for sure!
