Crust  (optional, I don't make a crust)

1 c crushed almonds
4Tbs butter  softened
3pkt Equal  or equivalent


3 8oz. packages Cream Cheese
2 eggs
2 egg whites
18 packets Equal or equivalent
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350. Mix almonds, butter and sweetner and press into a 9 inch springform pan evenly on bottom and 1/2 inch up on side of pan. Bake about 8 minutes until almonds are lightly toasted.  Cool.
Preheat oven to 350.  Beat Cream cheese, 18 pkts Equal and vanilla until fluffy.
Add eggs, egg whites, cornstarch and sour cream.  ( I use a processor and it comes out very smooth).   Pour mix, over crust. Place cheesecake in pan with one inch of boiling water and bake about 45-50  minutes.

Remove cheesecake and cool. Sliced strawberries are a nice topping!
