Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Cranberry Mousse

The first recipe I posted in 2013 was a cranberry recipe. The last recipe I'm posting in 2013 is also a cranberry recipe. This was not planned!  This recipe has just the right amount of sweetness and the right about of tartness to tickle your palate. It's kind of high in P+, but so worth it!

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 7 PointsPlus™

12 oz. fresh cranberries, rinsed
1 small (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained (OR pineapple bits, drained)
1 pkg (8 oz.) Neufchatel cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 of an 8 oz. tub of fat-free whipped topping.

Grind berries in a blender or food processor. If you are using pineapple bits, put them in with the berries.

In a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese and powdered sugar using an electric mixer. Fold in the whipped topping by hand.

Add the berry/pineapple mixture to the whipped topping mixture.
Spoon into 4 dessert dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour until 'set'.

MY SPIN: One of these days I'm going to dig out my food processor and learn how to use it. Doing the berries and pineapple in a blender......I had to stop and use a spatula to mix them up a bit to be sure they all got 'smooshed'!
Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
