Back to Basics with a Low Carb Cheesecake!
It dawned on us one day that even though we have tons of low carb dessert recipes, a few of which are cheesecake related, we didn’t actually have our faithful, original cheesecake recipe published. I’m not sure what came over us or why we didn’t realize it sooner! A friend asked us if we have a low carb cheesecake recipe on Tasteaholics and we quickly nodded our heads without realizing just how much we’ve been holding out on everyone. We’re sorry!
So with just a bit of ado, we present to you our Ultimate Low Carb Cheesecake, original, classic, and NY style! We don’t want to over-excite you… but each slice is only 3 net carbs! Eat all the slices!
What makes a low carb cheesecake NY style? The texture is much denser and firmer than a Philadelphia style cheesecake and all others as well. The addition of sour cream either on top of the baked cake or into the batter itself also plays a part in how moist the end result is. The slightly acidic addition of sour cream can be played up even more with a bit of lemon juice, which adds freshness to the cheesecake.
Many of the NY style cheesecakes are very tall and are baked with a crust. Crustless cheesecakes are great and all, but something’s missing! Our low carb, gluten-free crust will give all other cake and pie crusts a run for their money! We use a combination of pecans and almonds, both toasted to bring out their deep, nutty flavors. It’s reminiscent of a graham cracker crust thanks to the simple addition of cinnamon. This crust is baked prior to adding the cheesecake batter to help it crisp up a bit, so don’t skip that step.
