Hot Cranberry-Apple Cider
Made this for my class' holiday party. Put everything in a crock pot and let it go for 2 hours. Quick and tasty for a holiday get together.

Layered Cream Cheese-Sweet Potato Pie
Delicious! Made this for the Christmas feast. Super simple to make -- didn't have a deep dish pie crust, so just used 1 cup of reduced-fat Bisquick, 1/4 cup Smart Balance light margarine and a little Splenda to make a crust. Blind baked it in a 350 degree oven for 10-min., then cooled. Made the cream cheese layer w/ fat-free cream cheese to cut some calories/fat. Put that layer in the freezer until the sweet potato layer was ready. Used a combination of Splenda and sugar instead of just sugar. Might use just a little less orange zest as the flavor of the orange came through more strongly than the sweet potato, but it was great none the less.

Pumpkin Dessert Squares
I enjoyed these bars. They were easier to make than a traditional pumpkin pie. I cut them into bite-sized pieces so it was easier to serve at a party. I also changed up the ingredients to make them a little more figure friendly (low-fat bisquick, light margarine, 2 egg whites for two of the eggs, ff evaporated milk, 1/4 cup of Splenda for 1/4 of the brown sugar). The only complaint I have is that there seemed to be too much crust to go w/ the pumpkin. I will make it again.

Chocolate Chip-Pecan Pie Bars
These bars were all right. Not great -- not nearly as tasty as a traditional pecan pie. I had no issues w/ the crust. I did drizzle a little low-fat caramel dip over the top of them, and it upped the "yum factor". I might make them again.

Impossibly Easy Pumpkin Cheesecake
I made this for our Thanksgiving dessert this year. I made it more "Weight Watcher's" friendly by using low-fat bisquick, and fat-free cream cheese. I also substituted 2 egg whites for two of the eggs and 1/2 cup Splenda for 1/2 cup of sugar. I also omitted the pecan and caramel topping -- it just didn't need it. I did use fat-free dessert topping. It turned out absolutely delicious. My husband can't wait for me to make it again for Christmas! The only thing I'll change next time will be that I'll use a bain marie as I would w/ a traditional cheese cake.
