Gluten-Free Almond Crust Cheesecake from Gluten-Free Made Easy


My blogging friend, Christi Silbaugh, accomplished something amazing recently.  She co-wrote a cookbook called Gluten-Free Made Easy and it's absolutely wonderful.  The book is a fantastic collection of recipes and information for anyone looking to cut out gluten in their diet.  I am eating low-carb these days so this is a wonderful stepping stone to help me in my new eating lifestyle.  Today I bring you the fabulous and delicious Gluten Free Almond Crust Cheesecake recipe.  This is such an easy cheesecake recipe to make.  Since I am trying to avoid sugar, the only changes I made to the recipe was swapping out the sugar for a sugar-alternative.  I love the idea of the almond crust and being able to eat such a luscious dessert and not feel bad about it.   Thank you Christi and Michele for your amazing book!

Gluten-Free Made Easy is the prefect guide to your new lifestyle!  Learn dozens of tips and tricks for avoiding gluten and over 150 tasty, simple recipes like Creamy Chicken Taquitos, Margherita Pizza, and even Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Going against the grain has never been easier.

Making the almond crust... so easy!  Just put it in the oven while you whip up the filling.
The filling. Remember to use soften cream cheese (leave it out on the counter for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour) I used an 8 inch springform pan.

 All baked and ready to be topped with fresh fruit or your favorite cheesecake topping.  This was so much easier than I thought.  The hardest part was chilling it before serving because I was so excited I wanted to eat it right away. I recommend you make this the day before you want to eat it... so it's a perfect do ahead dessert for a dinner party.

  2. Wow, this cheesecake looks amazing!

  3. My nana is GF and she would LOVE this cheesecake!! And this cookbook! :D

  4. That crust sounds really good. Great cheesecake here and you did what I always do - topped with berries. The only way to have cheesecake in my opinion.

  5. Welcome to the world of low-carbing, Ramona!! Visit our Low-Carbing Among Friends' Facebook sometimes for some really fun recipes! You are such an amazing cook. I hope you will share your low-carb creations. There is a learning curve, so don't worry about it...just go with tried and true recipes first. Feel free to use my Gluten-Free Low-Carb Bake Mix too....makes life easier when you can sub for the white flour. I've now made the bake mix with gelatin so much easier to use. Also have the one with xanthan gum (but hubby has outlawed it due to tummy distress). Anyway love it that you're trying low-carb. Hope you find ways to make it a lifestyle change. :) All the best!! ~ Jen

  6. Gorgeous cheesecake. I love those beautiful berries on it, too. I have been wanting to try a recipe using almond meal and this looks like a great one for me. My husband is diabetic. He would really appreciate being able to eat this cheesecake and not have his blood sugars go through the roof.

  7. A guilt free dessert sounds pretty good to me and this one looks delicious!

  8. I read this book because I love to cook and always try to learn more interesting recipes. The author described it in great detail and it's incredible. I'm not good at writing lyrics. So I turned for assignment help uk to submit my essays to the teacher in the university. At least my texts were without errors. And I understood why and where I allowed it.
