Cheesecake, Low-Carb III (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 12

3 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
4 eggs
1 pint sour cream
15 to 18 packets of Equal and or Splenda (I use a combination)
Optional: lemon juice, lemon rind, orange rind

Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease bottom of spring form pan. Cut out piece of parchment/ wax paper/ or aluminum foil the size of the pan and put inside. Grease. Wrap 9" spring form pan in heavy duty aluminum foil. You will need a roasting pan large enough to hold the spring form pan. I use a large disposable aluminum roaster.

Beat cream cheese. Beat in the artificial sweetener. Add eggs, one at a time. Add sour cream and 1 to 2 tsp. vanilla. It is at this point that I add lemon juice and lemon and/or orange rind. It depends on your taste.

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Put pan in roaster. Fill roaster about 1/3 the way up the side with hot water.

Leave for 10 minutes at 425°F. Lower heat to 300°F. Bake for 1 hour. Turn oven off and let cool in oven for 1 to 2 hours. Remove from oven and water bath. Let cool completely. Chill.

To Serve: Remove sides of spring form pan. Put board over cake. Flip. Remove paper from bottom. Flip back.

Poster's Notes:
This can be served as is or garnished with berries.

I have also added sugarless chocolate and swirled it through. If you want to make it all chocolate you can add cocoa powder but add an additional egg or some cream.
