  • 2 oz. 50 g butter
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp (25 g) erythritol
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Instructions are for 12 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Butter a 9-inch (22 cm) springform and line the base with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter for the crust and heat until it gets a nutty scent. This will give the crust a lovely toffee flavor.
  3. Remove from heat and add almond flour, sweetener and vanilla. Combine into a dough and press into the base of the springform pan. Bake for 8 minutes, until the crust turns lightly golden. Set aside and allow to cool while you prepare the filling.
  4. Mix together cream cheese, heavy cream, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla and sweetener, if you’re using any. Combine well. Pour the mixture over the crust.
  5. Raise the heat to 400°F (200°C) and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Lower the heat to 230°F (110°C) and bake for another 45-60 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat and let cool in the oven. Remove when it has cooled completely and place it in the fridge to rest overnight. Serve with fresh blueberries.

    Can it be frozen? Any tips on how to freeze?

    Cheesecake is an excellent candidate for freezing. Cut into slices and store individually.

    I was wondering how you guys got only 4 grams of carbs when I put everything into the carb manager app that you put besides the sugar sub and came out to 93 net carbs divide that by 12 slices is almost 8 grams net carb

    Make sure and check your cream cheese and almond flour. Carb count can vary by brand.

    This cheesecake was amazing, my husband and I both loved it. I want to try and adapt it to make a chocolate cheesecake by removing the lemon and adding either dark chocolate or unsweetened cocoa powder. Any idea which would be best?

    Thanks 😊

    Advocating to add such amounts of sweetener is outright crazy.

    t. almost landed in a ambulance from dehydration thanks to excessive diarrhea from sweeteners.

    Has anyone not let it cool in fridge for hours before eating? My boyfriend is impatient. Does it taste different?

    More than taste, the texture will be different as the cheesecake will not be completely set up yet.

    I made the filling per the recipe, tasted it before cooking. It seemed to be missing something, I pulled my family recipe to compare. I added 1/2 cup of sour cream, three tablespoons of softened butter and 2 more tablespoons of Surkin 1 sweetener. I baked it per recipe and put in frig over night. Served with blueberries at a dinner party. It was a hit with everyone. It was creamy and rich. 4.1g net carbs, 33.3g fat, 7.3g protein per Carb Manager. 😋

    Can you make this in a glass pie dish and not springform?

    Pie dishes sometimes have smaller volume than springform so this may overflow. I had a bad incident with a cheesecake in a pie plate one time; I went to the store the very next day to get the springform pan!
