BARBARA'S PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE -- SUGAR-FREE, STARCH-FREE, LOW-CARB



BARBARA'S PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE -- SUGAR-FREE, STARCH-FREE, LOW-CARB

Introduction

Judging by the number of recipes showing up everywhere, I'm not the only one to discover that pumpkin cheesecake tastes even better than traditional pumpkin pie. For those people on a low-carb diet, there are extra advantages because we are less likely to miss the traditional crust and we can get more satisfaction for less pumpkin.

Ingredients

16 ounces cream cheese 1 cup water 3/4 cup sugar equivalent 1/2 cup pumpkin puree 1/4 cup heavy cream pumpkin pie spice -- to taste pinch salt 1 package Wise CHOice Easy Cheesecake Mix

To make one 8-9" (20cm) or two 6" (15cm) cheesecakes:

1. Preheat oven to 500°F (260°C). Grease a pie or cake pan.

2. Mix room temperature cream cheese with water until smooth. Mix in sweetener, pumpkin puree, and seasonings. Adjust seasonings to taste -- our mix uses pasteurized egg, so it's safe to taste when deciding whether you prefer more sweetener or spice.
