This is a gift for those of us who watch our carbs. I made a crunchy base using 3/4 cup of pecan flour and 3/4 cup almond flour, together with 2oz melted butter. Press the mixture into a pie dish and bake for 15 mins at 350. I followed the recipe for the filling as written, but added 1 teaspoon of lemon essence and 8oz of ricotta cheese. WOW this was delicious and so easy to make. Tastes just like regular cheesecake. My husband cant get enough of it. This will be a staple at our house from now on. Thanks a bunch for posting.
God bless you for posting this! I was scared to go to the grocery store for fear of tackling someone at the bakery counter so I desperately searched for a low carb dessert when I came across your recipe. Oh my goodness this was so YUMMY! I topped it with a little whipped cream too. My husband came home and ate all of it ("I left you a bite!") so I'm headed to the grocery store to buy some more flavors and experiment a bit. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love to cook and read cookbooks like others read novels. I especially like recipes that look like I spent a day in the kitchen but really only took a little of my time. I guess that comes from so many years in the kitchen plus I am a Cosmetologist in Florida and after the "season" (when the snowbirds are down) it takes me a while to re-coup. I love this site as I can type an ingredient in and find all kinds of recipes. With my busy schedule, I don't have as much time to spend in the kitchen as when I was a full time "Domestic Engineer". Besides working in a shop, I am a Minister's wife and we are in the process of "planting a church" in our area. I have 3 grown children and 19 grandchildren. The first was married in May so I guess it won't be long before I will be a ggrandmother. It amazes me how they are all growing up but I am not getting older! :-)
