Individual Mini Raspberry Cheesecakes

"I love the taste of fresh raspberries when they are in season. We try to eat Keto and lower-carb, so I took some traditional cheesecake techniques and made an easier version that is both tasty and lower-carb. I like to serve it with a raspberry sauce underneath it and no-sugar milk chocolate shavings on top of it. Makes for a very fancy looking desert."

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a food processor grind the almonds down to fine crumbs.
  • Melt the butter and add to the almond crumbs.
  • Spoon the buttered crumbs into the cupcake foils in a cupcake tin and press down with your fingers until it resembles a lower crust to the cupcake.
  • Bake the almond crust for 8 minutes or until slightly brown, toasting the nut mixture. When done remove and cool on a rack.
  • Mix softened cream cheese, sugar or sweetner, egg, lemon juice and vanilla and a bowl with a mixer until fully integrated.
  • Carefully fold in clean, good looking raspberries into the cheesecake mixture. Be careful not to smash the raspberries or you will get a pink cheesecake.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-18 minutes. Look for the cupcakes to solidify, but it will be okay if they are slightly soft.
  • Cool on a rack, then refrigerate.
  • When serving, remove from the refrigerator, carefully remove the cupcake foils, place in a desert dish and pair with your favorite raspberry sauce like Maso's raspberry sauce.
  • Mini cheesecakes can be made ahead a few days and will last nicely in the refrigerator for a few days. I have never frozen them. They disappear too quickly!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

My wife calls me "Maso", which is approximately "Tom" in Italian. I love taking recipes and change them to make them full of flavor, easier and quicker to make, and healthier to eat. I've been eating a Mediterranean diet for a long time now, so many of my recipes lean that way. You'll typically find olives, olive oil, nuts and leaner meats in my recipes. I rarely use recipes for most of my cooking, but attempt to get it right when telling others how to make something.
