Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake Noms, subtitled: Our Piggy's Getting Biggy

Right up front, let me tell you that (a) this is not really cheesecake :::calm down, cheesecake purists::: and (b) there's sucralose in this recipe :::insert shrieks of horror as desired::: and (c) I'm fine with all of that.  It's a recipe I've tweaked quite a bit over the last 9 years, and my framily is happy with the results.  Change it up however you want and enjoy it - or forget the dessert and just enjoy watching a piggy licking pumpkin out of a vintage pyrex glass baking dish, because really, how can you go wrong with that? 

Consider it a tail tale of a piggy who grew way too fast for her pyrex.

I was going to take a picture of the finished Noms, but interestingly enough, it was consumed before that happened. Hmmm...  So what you get is a picture of the ingredients I used.  And a cute pig video underneath the recipe, of course.

Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake Noms

2 eight oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups sucralose
2 t vanilla extract
1 t salt
2 T pumpkin pie spice
Random extra shakes of cinnamon if you like it as much as we do
6 eggs
2 fifteen oz cans pumpkin NOT pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Use your mixer to beat the cream cheese in a large mixing bowl till it’s creamy.

Add salt, pumpkin pie spice, extra cinnamon if you’re going to, and sucralose, and blend well.

Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix each one in completely as you add it.

Add the pumpkin and vanilla, and blend well.

Pour into a 13 x 9 glass baking dish, and bake for 55 minutes or until knife comes out clean. 

Chill if you have the patience for it; we never do.

Douse liberally with your topping of choice - here we're all about the whipped cream.    

If you cut this into 12 equal portions you're looking at *roughly* about 12 carbs per piece before toppings.  ***This is my guesstimate only.***
