  • 2 cups Almond Meal
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar free equivalent (Stevia is recommended)


  • 1 1/2lb Cream cheese
  • 4 Eggs (Room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/3 cup Sugar free equivalent (Stevia is recommended)
  • 1/4 cup Sour cream


  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla


I would not recommend low fat variations on this recipe.  Substituting low fat cream cheese, source cream and butter will leave the recipe markedly loose.


Step 1.
Combine ingredients for crust, and press into the bottom of a springform pan.
Step 2.
Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes, until fragrant and beginning to brown.
Step 3. Reduce the oven to 350
Step 4.
Put cream cheese in mixing bowl, and beat until fluffy. Add other ingredients, scraping the bowl and beaters each time (this is very important), fully incorporating each ingredient. When all ingredients are combined, scrape one more time, beat one more minute
Step 5.
Pour the batter over the crust. Wrap the bottom and sides of the springform pan in foil, put it in a baking pan and pour boiling water around the sides. Try to wrap the foil very tight to reduce water seeping through into the pan.
Step 6.
Bake at 350 F for 60 to 90 minutes, checking often. When the cake is firm to touch but slightly soft in the center, or the center reaches 155 F, remove from oven. I found this to be much closer to 60 minutes than 90.
Step 7.
Chill completely and then serve with chopped strawberries mixed with sugar free jam
