Ingredients

Cheesecake Base

  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Sukrin :1 Powdered! (or Swerve)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Stevia Glycerite
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract (optional)

Sour Cream Topping

  • 16 ounces sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Sukrin :1 Powdered! (or Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • freshly ground nutmeg (optional)

Instructions

  • Preparation: Preheat oven to 325. Spray a glass pie plate (9 1/2 - 10 inches) with baking spray. Powder 1/2 cup Sukrin :1 (or Swerve Granulated) in a coffee or spice grinder.
  • Mix: Put the softened cream cheese in a medium bowl and mix with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the Sukrin 1, stevia glycerite and one egg, beating gently until incorporated and smooth. One at a time, add the remaining eggs, mixing until each egg is absorbed before adding the other. Add the extracts and mix again. It will puff up in the oven and then collapse.
  • Bake: Pour the mixture into the glass pie plate and bake for about 30 minutes. Look for the Cheese Pie to puff up and brown around the edges. If it cracks, it's okay. The sour cream will hide any cracks. When the Cheese Pie is done, remove from the oven and let cool about 30 minutes. It will sink and make a well on top for the cream cheese.
  • Sour Cream Topping: Powder the 2 tablespoons of Sukrin 1. Mix the sour cream with the sweetener and vanilla until the sweetener dissolves. Spread on top of the cheesecake base. You may have sour cream left over. Grate fresh nutmeg over the top of the pie if you desire.  
  • Put the Cheese Pie back into a 325 oven and bake about 15-20 minutes more, until the sour cream sets. Refrigerate overnight and serve the next day as it get better as it sits.

Notes

Note: I powder the granulated erythritol to prevent it from re-crystallizing and making the pie "crunchy". You could use powdered Sukrin (Icing Sugar) or Swerve (Confectioners) but you will have to use about 1/4 cup more.
Stevia Glycerite is a form of liquid stevia that I do not find bitter. I like it better than other brands because of it. Because I think that erythritol tastes "sharp" I use as little as possible and augment with stevia glycerite to bump up the sweetness.
Where to buy Stevia Glycerite, Sukrin 1 or Swerve Granulated: I buy mine on Amazon.
