Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by princesslisa of a g

I made this last year for Thanksgiving and everyone has requested it again for this year...even the "non-lo-carbers". I found it on the Atkins Website. Only 6 net carbs per serving.

I've made this twice now and it has been excellent both times! The first time, I made it as directed and it came out really creamy, and did not hold its shape while on the plate. The second time, I made the following adjustments: I used vanilla bean paste for the extract, added 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg and I cooked it in the water bath at 300 degrees for 1 hour and at 200 degrees for 1/2 hour. Turned the oven off, opened the oven door and let the cheesecake stay in there for another 1/2 hour. Came out much better the second time around! Great recipe, will be using again and again!
