Ingredients

    2 Eggs
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups sour cream
    1/2 cup Splenda granules (or other artificial sweetener)
    16 oz cream cheese, softened.
    2 T melted butter.

Spoon about 1/2c mix into another bowl and add raspberry flavoring (sugar free, any flavor) Mix well.

Spoon remaining mix into a 10 inch spring release pan or 12 ramekins.(see photo)
Add dollops of raspberry batter on top and swirl thru.

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)

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-25 min if cooking ramekins, 35-40 min for spring pan. This will not look done, but will firm up when refrigerated.

Place ramekins in a water bath or place a shallow pan with water in overn below the pan or ramekins.

    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!

    Full of flavor without being too sweet. I made it and was a hit from the very first time. Love it, love it, love it. Now I don't have to feel left out at dessert time. - 11/26/07

    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!

    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
