Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake
Adapted from @ketoforreallifepeople
1 1⁄2 C whole pecans
1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
1⁄4 cup sweetener of choice (we used Truvia)
1 pinch kosher salt
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 egg white
- Preheat oven to 350degF.
- In a food processor, process pecans until they are a fine meal. Add sweetener, cinnamon & salt. Pulse a few times.
- While food processor is running on low, add the melted butter & egg white until dough is completely blended & clumped together.
- Lightly butter pie pan.
- Add dough & cover with a piece of plastic wrap.
- Using your fingers or the bottom of a glass, gently press to cover the bottom & sides of the pie pan. Remove the plastic wrap.
- Bake the crust for 10 minutes. It will puff a bit in the middle but will flatten again as it cools. If you use this crust for a baked pie, when you bake it again cover the edges with foil so that it doesn't over-brown.
