“Low carb friendly version of a fun summer treat, this is a pretty dish to bring to pot lucks or picnics, it is really a cheesecake with a nut crust. I adapted this from a recipe posted by Bob on low carb site, tried it over July 4th holiday and it was a winner. For the sugar free sweetner, I used a mix of granular Splenda and sugar free French vanilla syrup, which you can find in the coffee aisle of any supermarket.”
