Pomegranate Cheesecake with Homemade Danish Dessert

This delicious recipe is from my friend, Sally Goulding.
1 graham cracker crust
1 c. powdered sugar
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1-2 c. pomegranate seeds
1 pkg raspberry Danish Dessert or make your own with recipe below

Mix powdered sugar, Cool Whip and cream cheese with a mixer until very smooth. Pour into pie crust and cool in refrigerator until set. Mix Danish Dessert as per package directions or use the following recipe.

1 c. sugar
2 heaping T. cornstarch
1 pkg unsweetened Kool-Aid brand drink mix in desired flavor
Mix these three item with a fork until well blended. Put in a sauce pan and add 2 c. cold water. Cook until desired thickness. Cool and add 1/2 of the sauce to the pomegranates and spread over top of cheesecake. Save the rest for another pie or make two pies at once.
I like to use strawberry Kool-Aid with fresh strawberries for strawberry shortcake.

What a great photograph and an interesting recipe!! I always thought you weren't supposed to eat the actual seed. Maybe thats something my mother once told me, I just don't remember. What a beautiful color.

Peggy, this looks and sounds delicious. I am glad to see more recipes using pomegranate as I am unfamiliar with them.

So happy to find your blog. Excited to try the pomegranate cheesecake as pomegranates are on my shopping list this week. I LOVE to eat them and am trying to use the juice in as many ways as I can as it is so healthy. I'll be trying this recipe too as well as checking out the rest of your site. - Pam preparedness365.blogspot.com
