Rinse the strawberries making sure to drain the water well. Dice the them and put them in pan. Cook on medium heat stirring occasionally after about 5 minutes the strawberries will begin to release their own juices. cook for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of ez-sweets and a splash of lemon juice. Refrigerate until later.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grind pecans in a coffee bean grinder or food processor until it's a fine powder it will be wet because of the natural oils in the pecans.  Press the pecans in to a 9 inch round cake pan making sure to press it to the sides as well. Then set aside.

In a mixing bowl add cream cheese, eggs,  sweetener, vanilla & almond extracts. Blend well with a hand mixer.  Once completely combined and smooth transfer to pecan crusted pan.  Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown and cracking on top.

Allow to cool completely and then spread on strawberry topping.

Enjoy 😀
