16 Ounces Cream Cheese (room temperature)
1 & 1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans
1/2 Cup Canned Pure Pumpkin
3 Eggs Room Temperature
1 Egg White
1 Cup Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener
2 Tablespoons Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Ginger
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350*F
In a small mixing bowl combine the cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
In a medium mixing bowl add 1 egg white and then whisk until completely foamy.
Add the Pecans to the Egg White and then mix thoroughly.
Season the pecan and egg mixture with 1 Teaspoon of the pumpkin Spice mix and the Golden Monkfruit.
Press the crust mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and spread evenly. This will produce a rather thin crust that should be about 1/8″ thick all around. Bake the crust for about 10 minutes at 350*F and then remove immediately and set on the counter.
In a large bowl, beat the Cream Cheese until evenly whipped.
Add Pumpkin, 3 Large Eggs, 1 Cup Classic Monkfruit Sweetener, 2 teaspoons of the pumpkin spice mixture. Blend until evenly whipped.
Grease the sides of the Springform Pan before you spoon the cheesecake batter in, and spread evenly across the pan.
Bake cheesecake at 350*F on the middle rack for approximately 45 minutes. Keep an eye on it though throughout the cooking process. The batter will be a little runnier at first than a normal chcheesecake batter due to the added pumpkin, but it will firm up.
Remove from the oven and set on the counter to cool for about 20 minutes before placing in the refrigerator uncovered to cool for at least 4 hours (overnight preferably), then you can wrap or cover the cheesecake as you wish.
