  • 2 Tablespoons butter

Pre-heat oven to 350o. In a food processor pulse the nuts and almond flour until eat resembles a coarse meal. Add butter and pulse a few more time to incorprorate.

In an un-greased 9" spring form pan or individual mini cupcake tin press the nut mixture evenly and up the sides to create a crust.

Step 3

Beat cream cheese at high speed with a mixer until creamy; gradually add SPLENDA® mixing well. Pour into prepared crust.

Step 4

Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until each one is incorporated. Add lime juice and a pinch of salt, beat until smooth.

Step 5

Pour into prepared crust. Bake 50 to 60 minutes if using a pie plate or 30 minutes if using a mini cupcake tin. Should be slightly firm to the touch.

Step 6

Run a knife around edge of pan to release sides, and help prevent cracking. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack; cover and chill at least 8 hours.
