Making our pecan pie crust.
We will be making our pumpkin cheesecake crust out of pecans. In a mix/blender crush 1 1/2 cups of pecans into fine granulated pieces. In a mixing bowl add in all dry ingredients including crushed pecans and combine thoroughly. After mixing all the dry ingredients you can add in the 1/4 cup melted butter. When everything is fully mixed together place parchment paper at the bottom of a 6-inch non-stick springform baking pan and spread the crust thinly and evenly on top. Use a fork to poke holes throughout the whole crust so we won't have air pockets when baking. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes.
Pumpkin Cheesecake filling.
In a mixing bowl, we can add in our pumpkin cheesecake filling. Add in 8 ounces of room temperature cream cheese, half a can of 100% pumpkin puree or about 7.5 ounces, 3 tbsp granulated monk fruit sweetener, 1/2 tsp of liquid stevia, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 tsp baking powder, 2 large eggs, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp allspice, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp ground ginger, and 1/2 tsp banana extract(optional). Before mixing with a hand blender we will lightly mix with a spoon. So, the powder won't go flying everywhere. Now, using a hand blender mix until we get a smooth consistency.
Add Fillings into Pie TIn
Take the pie crust that we just baked and spray non stick spray on the side of the inside of the springform baking pan as needed. Just a precaution so our cheesecake doesn't stick to our baking pan. Make sure when baking the cheesecake we put something underneath because I had some oil's drip to the bottom of my oven. Pour our pumpkin cheesecake filling in at the middle. So, the filling spreads out evenly. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
After 45ish minutes in the oven, we can do a toothpick test and stick a toothpick into our cheesecake. If the toothpick comes out clean than our cheesecake is good. Let sit at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes to cool down. And, then we'll cool it way down overnight if possible in the refrigerator. After cooling has cooled the cheesecake coolly, you may enjoy this delicious dessert. Maybe with some cool whip on top and a glass of unsweetened almond milk. Keto Gang!
