  • Stir almond flour, butter, erythritol, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl until well combined; the mixture will be crumbly. Press into the prepared pan bottom.

  • Bake on the center rack until in the preheated oven until just golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and powdered sweetener together using an electric stand or hand mixer at low speed until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Add lemon juice, vanilla extract, and lemon zest. Beat until well combined.

  • Bake on the center rack in the preheated oven until center is almost set and slightly jiggly in the center, 45 to 55 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan. Keep in the pan, cover, and refrigerate to fully set, at least 4 hours, to overnight. Run a knife gently around the sides to remove, unclamp, and carefully remove the pan; it should come right off.

Cook's Note:

You can use granular or powdered erythritol for the crust. Measure the butter solid.

This recipe came out great! My crappy supermarket (Winn Dixie) did not have erythritol, so I substituted Splenda 1:1 and it came out great. I probably added a bit extra zest, but the cheesecake had a very pleasant, but not overpowering hint of lemon. I forgot to take a picture before we dug in. This won't last long. Read More

I used this recipe but exchanged the Erythritol for regular powdered Splenda ( not the mixed for baking ) and it came out beautiful and tasted wonderful. Read More
