  • 8 oz cranberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar divided
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 24 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 3.4 oz pkg cheesecake flavored pudding vanilla will work, too
  • crust of choice in 9 inch springform pan*


  • In a small saucepan, heat the cranberries and granulated sugar until the cranberries soften. Mash the cranberries until a jam forms. Allow the jam to cool completely before moving on to the next step.
  • Whip together the cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese and slowly add in the pudding mix (just the powder!) until completely incorporated and smooth.
  • Add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth.
  • Fill the crust, alternating between the cheesecake filling and cranberry jam until both elements are gone.
  • Use a silicone spatula to smooth the top and refrigerate until serving!
  • For best results, let it chill in the fridge overnight before slicing! Alternatively, you can freeze for 2-3 hours to quickly set the cheesecake.


To make crust- combine 2 cups crushed graham crackers (approx 2 sleeves), 6 tbsp melted butter and 1 tbsp sugar. Press firmly into the 9 inch springform pan, covering the bottom and up the sides. Freeze until ready to add the filling.
