Talking Healthy Dessert "Thanksgiving" Recipes

Hello everyone

Thanksgiving is coming up and I'm incharge of bringing a dessert. I would really love to bring something that is equally healthy as it is delicious. Sadly it always seems that you get one or the other.

SO! Any tips or suggestions of recipes or sites would be awesome! I'd highly appreciate it.

http://www.chocoholicsrevenge.com/ is the only site I know of, but I don't like chocolate too much and I'd like a variety

Thanks again!

Are you a Cooking Light subscriber? If so, you can access the recipes on their site, they have GREAT holiday recipes! Some are accessible to everyone, but others require a subscription login. If you are not, then let me know what you are looking for, and I'll see if I can find it there and copy here I'm going to make a Snickers Cheesecake recipe from their site, for our family Thanksgiving.

May as well post it here

Snickers Cheesecake

2/3 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs (about 5 cookie sheets)
Cooking spray
2 cups fat-free cottage cheese
1 (8-ounce) tub light cream cheese
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup fat-free caramel sundae syrup, divided
2 (2.07-ounce) chocolate-coated caramel-peanut nougat bars (such as Snickers), chopped and divided

Preheat oven to 300.

Sprinkle crumbs into bottom and halfway up sides of a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.

Combine cheeses in a food processor; process 2 minutes or until smooth. Add brown sugar and next 6 ingredients (brown sugar through egg whites); process just until blended. Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons syrup; sprinkle with half of chopped candy bar. Pour remaining batter into pan; drizzle with 2 tablespoons syrup. Bake at 300 for 50 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining chopped candy bar; bake 10 minutes or until almost set. Turn oven off; let cheesecake stand for 1 hour in oven with door closed. Remove cheesecake from oven; cool to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)
