  • 1 1/2 cups cream cheese, softened (600 g/ 1.3 lb)
  • 1/3 cup Erythritol Sweetener (65 g/ 2.3 oz)
  • Optional: 10-15 drops liquid stevia for extra sweetness
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, room temperature (113 g/ 4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
Pecan pie topping:
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar substitute such as Swerve or Sukrin (53 g/ 1.9 oz)
  • 4 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup such as Lakanto (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum or glucomannan powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (113 g/ 4 oz)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (120 ml/ 4 fl oz)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans (218 g/ 7.7 oz)

Instructions

  1. Adjust the rack to the middle of the oven. To make the crust, combine the crust dry ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Mix in the butter and vanilla extract. Pour the crust mixture into a lined 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan and press halfway up the sides using your fingers use a flat bottomed cup to press the mixture into the bottom. Refrigerate the crust for 20 minutes.
    Note: It is important to press the crust up the sides of the pan also. Try to get it at least 3/4 of the way up. This will help hold the pecan pie filling once it is added to the cheesecake.

  3. Preheat oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F (conventional), or 140 °C/ 285 °F (fan assisted). To make the filling, in a large mixing bowl beat the cream cheese and sweetener with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add heavy cream, sour cream, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt. Beat until well combined. Beat in the eggs just until combined.
  5. Pour the cream cheese filling through a fine mesh sieve into the base it helps remove any large clumps that might spoil the cheesecake. Use an offset spatula to spread the batter evenly into the bottom.

  6. Put the cheesecake into the oven and bake in a large baking sheet filled with water (wrap outside of pan in a double layer of foil, covering the underside and extending all the way to the top.) Bake for 40 minutes.
  7. Once the cheesecake goes into the oven, begin working on the topping. Combine the brown sweetener, maple syrup, xanthan gum, and butter in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it reaches a boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool while the cheesecake is baking.
  8. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs (used in the topping layer), salt, and cream together; set aside. Once the cheesecake has baked for 40 minutes, remove it from the oven. Slowly whisk the egg mixture with the cooled syrup until well combined. Stir in the chopped pecans.
