Default Lemon cheesecake bars

Crust: 1 1/4C almond flour, 4 TB melted butter, 1/8 C Swerve or other sweetener, pinch salt.

Filling: 12OZ room temperature cream cheese, juice of 2 lemons, zest of 1 lemon, 1/2C Swerve or other sweetener, 1 whole egg, 1tsp cornstarch, 2TB heavy cream or half and half.

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix crust ingredients and spread evenly in an 8x8 baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes, reducing oven to 275F halfway through. The crust will not be brown and is par cooked. Set aside to cool.

Using a hand mixer combine filling ingredients. Pour into crust. Bake 30 minutes or until "set" and middle only slightly jiggles (I baked it 35 minutes, but turned the oven off after 30). Cool 30 minutes on the counter, then refrigerate at least 2 hours. Serve chilled.

I had about 2C frozen blackberries on hand and made a sauce using juice of 1/2 lemon, 1tsp cornstarch and a few squirts of liquid stevia, cooked over low heat. Mash the berries. Allow to cool.
