Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake with Gingerbread Pecan Crust



  • 6 prepared gingerbread cookies, made using 1/2 packet LC Foods Gingerbread Cookie Mix (follow package directions)
  • 3/4 cup roasted salted pecan halves
  • 1 tablespoon keto honey substitute

Cheesecake Fillling:

  • 24 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 – 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup LC Foods Low Carb White Sugar Sweetener – Erythritol (or more to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 packet powdered gelatin, bloomed in 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream


  • Whipped cream (store bought or homemade)
  • Sugar-free caramel sauce


  • Prepare a 9″ springform pan by spraying with non-stick cooking spray. Optional: insert an acetate collar around the inside of the pan.
  • For the crust, combine all crust ingredients in a food processor and process until fine crumbs and well blended. Press the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • For the filling, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, pumpkin puree, erythritol, spices, salt, vanilla and maple extracts until well blended. (Note: adjust sweetener to taste. You may add more sweetener at this point if you like a sweeter cheesecake.)
  • Bloom the gelatin in cold water until softened, then microwave for 30 seconds. Beat the soft gelatin into the cream cheese mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Pour the filling over the prepared crust, smoothing the top. Refrigerate the cheesecake for 6 hours before removing from the pan.
  • Before serving, pipe or dollop whipped cream on the top, then drizzle with the caramel sauce.
