Cranberry and cheesecake, a dessert combination that’s perfect for the holiday season! This cranberry cheesecake is decadent, fluffy and melt-in-your mouth good! Plus, your guests will be super impressed with the delicate design on the top that’s made with cranberry sauce. I start out with a basic cheesecake recipe and add canned cranberry sauce to the mix. You can also make your own cranberry sauce and use it for this recipe. Either way works well! This cheesecake recipe yields a fluffy and velvety smooth cake, just the way a cheesecake should be. The addition of the cranberry adds a hint of tangy and loads of incredible berry flavor!
Making the delicate cranberry sauce design on top is actually super simple and it looks like a million dollars! Just use cranberry sauce and drop little dollops of the sauce using a dispenser bottle. Add the drops in a spiral moving outwards from the center and make them larger as you move out. Then grab a toothpick and pull it through each dollop. That’s it! For best results, use a waterbath to bake your cheesecake. This will make your cheesecake level on top and preserve the design.

I love this tall spring form pan for cakes and cheesecakes.
These handy off-set spatulas are great for spreading cake batter and frosting.
My classic CuisinArt food processor is the best – simple and powerful.
And my classic KitchenAid stand mixer is a must for every kitchen.
