If desired, you can make a crust from 1 1.2 cups ground almonds, 1/4 cup splenda and 1/4 butter. Mix all together like you would graham cracker crust and line pan or ramekins. (calculations do not include crust)

    It's nice to see some low-carb versions of recipes. For those commenting on fat content, many people choose a low-carb lifestyle, free (for the most part)from fat counting. I'm not diabetic, but members of my family are, and we all appreciate a low-carb alternative. I like adding frozen cherries. - 1/12/09

    This is a really good, moderately induction friendly recipe! I made this in muffin cups, and they came out wonderfully! I would suggest waiting patiently until they are cool to eat; they taste much better cold. To avoid temptation, I froze what I was not using as soon as they were all cool. - 2/3/08

    I've also used the silicone muffin cups and freeze leftovers. I've never tied it warm!

    Low carb WOW! Thanks for the recipe! I eat low carb and really enjoyed the dessert! I used sugar free raspberry jelly in the recipe. Just wondering if someone has a suggestion to eliminate small cream cheese lumps and have a creamier texture? I will definitely make this again! - 10/13/08

    Cindy, make sure your cream cheese is at room temp and blend well. I use a stand mixer and just let it go until it's nice and smooth. Hope that helps!

    This was sooo good. I won't use any of those sweetners though. I use Stevia. I kept it in the freezer. I let my hubby have one piece only if his sugar and carb levels have been down to a good level for two days. This is so tasty. Thank you. - 6/21/09

    What almond crust? - 9/21/08

    Reply from CINDYSUE48 (1/3/09)
    ground almonds, sugar substitute and butter. You can buy ground almonds in many food stores or health food stores or you can grind your own using a food processor. I'm told that you have to be careful to not over grind if you do it yourself or it's more like a butter. I always buy it pre-ground.

    What is Raspberry flavoring? I have never heard of it. - 9/21/08

    Reply from CINDYSUE48 (1/3/09)
    There are several ways to get the fruit flavoring. I think most use DaVinci, but I have only used Torani, which I bought at World Market (be sure to check label, they sell both sugar free and sugar containing)

    Basically, you can make any cheesecake 'low carb' by omitting the crust and lowering the sugar content. - 9/21/08

    yes, and using full fat not low or fat free. (Fat is good with low carb!)

    Very Good. I am glad to see that there are some Sparks members that realize sugar is much more dangerous to our health than fat. Some fat is necessary in our diets. I always follow low carb eating. - 9/23/08

    I think it would taste even better with a little sugar free Cool Whip on top with those raspberries pictured and it wouldn't up the calories too much. Yummy! - 3/10/09

    Directions call for raspberry flavoring, but it's not listed on ingredient list, so how much of the raspberry flavoring is needed? Also, I'm a little unclear on the amount of almonds needed for the crust--is 1 1.2 cups close to 1 cups? Thanks! - 8/8/14

    Great "concept" but way way too much fat for a small serving - and that's without a crust! As some have suggested - FF or LF alternatives would help and would have little effect on taste. I will try this using FF ingredients without a crust. - 9/22/08

    Fat is not an issue with low carb. If you are following a low fat diet, this is not for you.
