Sweet Tooth Cure Below....

Cheese Cake-Low Carb
Ingredients:
• 24 ounces cream cheese, softened
• 1 cup extra-fine whole milk ricotta cheese (to refine, process in a food processor for 1 minute)
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 1 1/2 cups sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
• 1/3 cup heavy cream
• 1 tablespoon no sugar added vanilla extract
• 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
• 2 eggs
• 3 egg yolks
• Special Equipment: 1 (8-inch) spring-form cake pan
Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray the spring-form pan with nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside. In a shallow roasting pan big enough to fit the cake pan, pour about 1-inch of water and place it on the center rack of the oven to preheat.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat softened cream cheese, ricotta, sour cream and sugar substitute on low speed for about 1 minute until well blended.
In a separate bowl, using a wire whisk, mix heavy cream, vanilla, lemon juice, eggs, and egg yolks until blended.
Turn the mixer on medium speed, and slowly pour the egg mixture into the cream cheese mixture. Beat just until blended and then turn off; be careful not to over-whip.
Pour batter into the greased springform pan. Place pan into the heated water bath. Bake for 15 minutes, and then lower the oven temperature to 275 degrees F. Continue baking for 1 1/2 hours, or until top is light golden brown and cake is pulling away from the sides of the pan. Turn the oven off when finished cooking and leave the cake in the oven to cool for 3 more hours. (This will keep the cake nice and tall.) Then remove cake and refrigerate before serving. Serve chilled.
Total Time: 10 hr 15 min
Prep: 30 min, Inactive: 8 hr

I have a great recipe for low carb bourbon balls, if anyone wants it.

My son's 27th birthday was back in December although we didn't get the chance to see him until this past week. My wife made a cheese cake for him and I had a piece - it was half the amount my son had but I was curious to know how much it would affect my BGs. As it turned out it had very little affect but it was very difficult stopping at just half a piece.

See recipe above and have a full piece! My adult kids swear they use this recipe as it tastes better than most 'regular' recipes….

As a cheesecake aficionado, that sounds delicious!

Default Bourbon Balls

1 Cup of Almond Flour
2 Cups of Pecans (ground until it's the consistency of the almond flour)
2 Tablespoons of Monk Fruit Sweetener (or Stevia)
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)
3/4 Cup of Bourbon

Mix all ingredients and roll into small balls. Place on parchment paper. Put in the refrigerator overnight.

Now for Christmas, I rolled them in confectioners sugar before placing on parchment paper. (obviously not low carb) They DO make a no carb confectioner powder, but I haven't tried it yet. I just sprinkle some more monk fruit on top of them.

Keep them away from kids.

They're to die for.

The low carb confectioner sugar is called "Swerve" I just ordered some from Amazon.

Thanks Cassie. Is the monk fruit sweetener a 1:1 replacement for sugar? That will help me figure out how to convert how much stevia to put it. Or I can have BH place an order for the monk fruit sweetener with the Swerve.

That leaves what, ~26 ounces of bourbon to deal with?
