  • 32 ounces full fat cream cheese room temperature (see notes)
  • 1 cup full fat sour cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 cups Swerve Confectioner's powdered erythritol (see notes)
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon or orange extract more if needed
  • zest of one orange or lemon
  • Almond Flour Crust Recipe
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon Swerve or sugar


  • ! Make Almond Crust
  • Add almond flour, melted butter, vanilla and swerve.
  • Pat down into a 8 or 9-inch springform pan. Don't go up the sides. Not necessary.
  • Jab with fork all over. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until done at 350 F (180C).
  • Stick in freezer for about 10 minutes.

Make Filling

  • Using a food processor, or a mixer, mix cream cheese until it is very smooth.
  • Add in sour cream, zest, swerve, Mix well.
  • Add vanilla. Add lemon extract (if using)
  • Add eggs by hand, until just mixed.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for up to 45-55 minutes.or until the outside is set and the middle still jiggles a little. It will continue to cook.I t will get a golden brown. The internal temperature should be taken at 45 minutes to see where it's at. It's done at 150 degrees in center.
  • Turn oven off. Open oven door. Leave in for an hour. If you don't have time for that, it's okay. I didn't as I needed my oven. It might compact a little more, but that's okay. When that happens, I just stick inside microwave to cool.
  • Take cheesecake out. Allow it to cool for two hours. Remove from pan.
  • If you want sour cream on top, spread on after cooling and before refrigeration.
  • Refrigerate for at least six hours or overnight.
  • Serve as is, or with berries and fresh mint.


You can opt out of lime juice if you don't have it.
To Make this cheesecake sky high, bake in an 8 inch cheesecake pan.
