Primal Ricotta Cookies

Amy No Comments

After going Paleo/Primal, I just don't get the same enjoyment out of Christmas cookies this season anymore, so I thought it was about time to adapt some of my holiday favorites to a grain-free version.

I made this primal white chocolate cranberry cheesecake for my family's thanksgiving feast and it was one of my favorite cheesecakes I've made, and the family was delighted too. The crust and filling were pretty close to my standard recipes, but the sweet and tart cranberry compote just perfectly complimented the creamy heavenly cheesecake. The appearance is simple yet full of holiday cheer with the bright red berries in contrast to the snowy white chocolate shavings and Read more [...]
