Notes

Lower the carb count by 50% by leaving out the sugar-free strawberry preserves topping.  1) Use your favorite low carb/keto sweetener.  (2) Experiment with different flavors of sugar-free preserves!  Blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, etc.  Be sure to check the nutritional information. (3) You can skip the preserves altogether and eat the cheesecake plain; or top with a fresh strawberry or couple of blueberries.
