INGREDIENTS

For the crust

  • 1 1/2 Cups almond flour
  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, melted

For the filling

  • 6 Packages 8 ounces full fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sweetener
  • 5 Large Eggs room temperature
  • 8 Ounces Sour Cream room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla extract

EQUIPMENT

  • 10 inch Springform Pan

INSTRUCTIONS

  • It is an absolute necessity that all the ingredients you will use are room temperature! Pre-heat oven to 325F.  Adjust the rack to the middle of the oven.  Combine the crust dry ingredients in a medium bowl.  Mix in the butter.  Pour the crust mixture into a 10 inch x 4 inch springform pan and press halfway up the sides using your fingers.  Use a flat bottomed cup to press the mixture into the bottom.  Refrigerate the crust for 20 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the room temperature cream cheese with a hand mixer until light and fluffy.  If you use a stand mixer use the paddle attachment.  
  • Add in the sweetener a little at a time (about 1/3) and beat with the hand mixer.  
  • Add in the room temperature eggs one at a time and beat until well incorporated.
  • Finally, add in the vanilla and room temperature sour cream and beat until just incorporated.
  • Pour the cheesecake mixture into the crust and even out the top.  Bake in the pre-heated oven.  Check after 50 minutes.  The top should no longer be glossy and the center should still be jiggly.  
  • Turn off the oven and crack the door.  Let the cheesecake sit in the oven for 30 minutes.  Remove the cheesecake from the oven run a sharp paring knife between the cheesecake and the pan (this is to ensure the cake doesn’t stick.  Do not remove the springform).  Let sit on the counter for 1 hour.
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.  
  • Remove the springform pan sides, decorate the top, and serve.  Makes 12 slices.
  • If you want to make a version with less carbs, you can replace the crust with just parchment paper, and continue with the cheesecake as normal.
