  • Preheat oven to 325°F if using a silver 9-inch springform pan (or to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Spray bottom of pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with almonds.
  • Beat Neufchatel, cream cheese, sugar, sugar substitute and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Top with raspberries just before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator. Makes 16 servings

How to Test Cheesecake Doneness

To avoid overbaking a cheesecake, check for doneness at the minimum baking time by gently shaking the pan. If the cheesecake is done, the edge should be slightly puffed and it will be set except for a small area in the center that will be soft and jiggly. Do not insert a knife into the center as this may cause the cheesecake to crack during cooling.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really liked this recipe. I really liked this recipe. I changed it a little though, by making individual servings in baking cups. It yeilded 30 servings instead of 16 so it's alot less calories while not feeling cheated at the size. Also, I added sugar free topping to them, apple and blueberry, before baking. This was excellent but I expected the cooking time to be alot less, like other mini recipes, but it still took about 25 minutes to bake. I'm taking these to party but they've already proved to be a hit with my un-official taste testers.

Love it, I did all splenda, the recommended amount plus half a cup, couldn't find crushed almonds so I used finely crushed pecans (8oz) I added a little bit more vanilla.i topped it with sliced strawberries, and 85% dark organic chocolate drizzled on top, it was a beautiful piece for my birthday :) I also wrapped it in black and silver bling for sparkle thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm not a fan of almonds, so I used a macadamia nut crust. I'm not a fan of almonds, so I used a macadamia nut crust. Y'all want to talk about sin? Well, it was this cheesecake on a macadamia crust. I also substituted the sugar with Splenda. For Thanksgiving, I topped the cake with lo-carb craisins rolled in Splenda. For Christmas, I add ground clove, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and just a hint of ginger for that classic holiday flavor. For Easter, I allow myself some leeway on the carbs. I either add some violet extract (HARD to find) or grind up some Croward's violet candy squares into powder and add that to the mix. Before serving, I top the cheesecake with candied violets. The smooth richness of the cream with the delicate and lovely notes of violet make that variation a very, very classy dessert. I get rave reviews for it, every single time I make it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was fantastic! This recipe was fantastic! I'm not a great baker but I've got two helpful hits to make this recipe a total success. I used roasted (lightly salted) almonds for the base, and I used closer to a cup than half a cup of crushed almonds as that was what I had in the house. I coated the bottom of the pan with pam and covered it completely with the almonds. After cooling my cheesecake (completely) it had a huge crack in the middle of it. Tip #1: To help the presentation, I flipped the cake over so that the almond coating became the top of the cake. The crack was hidden and everyone though that i had store bought it since it looked so gorgeous and professional! Tip #2: I made this cake the night before a friends birthday party in the summer. Since fridge space is always tight at a party, I opted to freeze the cake overnight instead of refrigerating it. Transporting the frozen cake was a breeze and we left it out of the way (defrosting in another room) throughout the party. About 3-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for an office Christmas Party. I made this for an office Christmas Party. My co-worker made a New York Cheesecake (the unhealthy versiion) and mine looked the exact same. Co-workers could NOT tell the difference. I am making it again for my husbands birthday. I used ALL Splenda and see no reason to put any real sugar in it, sure can't tell the difference and it lowers the carbs w/o sugar.

Easy to make, but seemed a little flat and it sunk some in the middle, was not very high for a NY cheesecake, Next time I will use more vanilla and something else in place of the almonds. It may have been something I did. Will try it again.
