Save time a purchase pre-made crusts. I am allergic to almonds, so it’s hard to find low carb pie crust recipe options. I also like a change from coconut flour too. This store bought pecan crust is such a time saver and so easy to find. I add it directly to the pie crust, or other times crumble it and spread across the bottom of an instapot springform pan when I want my cheesecake to have more height.

I got this easy beautiful keto crust on the sugar-free pumpkin cheesecake from the recommended ready made pecan crust! All I did was crumble it and place an even layer on the bottom of the springform pan before baking.

Let the cream cheese and eggs room sit out for about an hour to room temperature.

Use erythritol as the sugar substitute for the best flavor.

Don’t forget the sugar-free cool whip!


What makes this easy recipe keto/low-carb?

In addition to the pecan crust, pumpkin is a naturally low carb vegetable so a great choice for any time of year and a great choice for keto and low carb desserts.

I love using pumpkins in vegetarian recipes because it’s a great low carb winter squash. This recipe in particular gives me comfort food all the way without the guilt.

My cheesecake cracked?

Remember that even if your cheesecake cracks, it will still taste great. The main tips to prevent a cheesecake from cracking are:

  • Don’t overbeat your eggs or cream cheese mixture. Too many air bubbles will encourage cracks.
  • Spray your pan well to prevent the sides from sticking and causing the cracks when the pan cools.
  • Don’t overbake it.
  • Don’t open the oven during the middle of it cooking. Even temperatures are ideal. Also try placing your cheesecake in a water bath when baking.
