1 deep-dish pie



  • 1 ½ cups almond flour

  • cup granular no-calorie sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®)

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

  • 2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk

  • ¾ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest, divided


  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Mix almond flour, sucralose sweetener, butter, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Press over the bottom and up the sides of a deep-dish pie plate to form a crust.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is firm, about 7 minutes. Let cool completely.

  4. Beat cream cheese in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in sweetened condensed milk. Add lemon juice and 1 teaspoon lemon zest; beat until thoroughly blended. Pour filling into the cooled crust.

  5. Refrigerate until filling is set, about 4 hours.

  6. Spread whipped topping over lemon filling. Garnish with remaining 1 teaspoon lemon zest.
