Unbaked Berry Cheesecake

My mom came up with this recipe when one of my sisters wanted an unbaked cheesecake for her birthday dessert last year. Since they don't eat refined sugar, Mom had to figure out how to make it without. The result was exquisite--in looks and taste--as we found out this Thanksgiving.

Unbaked Berry Cheesecake


1 c. soft butter
dash salt
1/2 c. sucanat (or raw sugar)
2 c. whole wheat flour

Combine all ingredients and mix well.
Press mixture into 9 x 13" pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.
Allow to cool completely before filling with recipe below.


2- 12 oz cans apple or raspberry apple juice concentrate
4 c. frozen berries
1/2 c. cold water
5 Tb. cornstarch
2 c. whipping cream
2- 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
3 or 4 Tb. honey

Pour juice in large pan on stove top and bring to boil.
Add berries, bring back to boil.
Mix cold water with cornstarch in separate bowl.
Take juice mixture off heat, mix in cornstarch mixture, return to heat. Stir until boiling and thickened. Cool.
Whip whipping cream.
Blend in cream cheese.
Fold in honey.
Pour cream cheese mixture over crust and chill while making berry mixture. Then pour berries over all. Refrigerate.
