Weeks ago I shared the recipe for Low-Carb No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake Dessert. And now that the weather is going to be getting warmer soon I'm following it up with this Fantastic Low-Carb Cheesecake with Cherry Topping that has to be baked. My bad. But I didn't want to wait until next winter to share the updated photos for this recipe that I first posted in 2006, even if my timing was a little off!
I originally shared both those recipes in a single post, back in the days when blogging events were the thing to do and my friend Sam of Becks and Posh switched up an event usually called Sugar High Friday into one featuring recipes that were low in sugar. Sam has long since moved on from her blog, and I decided it was time for these two recipes to move on as well, each one into a post of its own with brand-spanking new photos!
And don't think me lacking in humility by calling this FANTASTIC Low-Carb Cheesecake with Cherry Topping! Even though it really is pretty fantastic, the name came from the recipe I adapted from a low-carb cookbook; see below for more details! The original recipe called for a home-made graham cracker crust, which I skipped for this updated version as well, for even less carbs.
