HOW TO MAKE KETO CHEESE DANISH

I love all things danish but as we know they are packed full of calories!

Now you can enjoy this keto friendly danish without all the fuss about carbs!

Lets get started! Preheat your oven to 400F.

Now let’s make the fathead dough.  In a large microwave safe bowl, add in the mozzarella cheese, almond flour, and salt. Mix well.

Place your cream cheese on top of the mixture and microwave on high for 1 minute.

Stir and heat for another 30 seconds more if not completely melted.

When the dough is cool enough to handle, add in the egg and mix well with your hands.  Try not to get any shell in yours like I did!

Dump the dough onto a piece of parchment paper or Silicone baking mat.

Use a rolling pin or your hands to press the dough into a 10 to 12 inch oblong shape.

Place the parchment paper on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 12 minutes.

While the dough is in the oven..

Make the cream cheese topping by combing the cream cheese, powdered sweetener and heavy cream in a small bowl.

Remove the pastry from the oven and top with the cream cheese topping.

    I’ve made this twice now and it’s quite yummy! Only thing is the directions do not mention at what point you add the sweetener to the dough. I add it in the first dry ingredient phase and it seems to work just fine

    I just made this today, very delicious! I’m wondering about your nutrition information. You list a serving as 8 grams. My serving was about 48 grams. Is the nutrition information per 1/8 of the recipe instead of 8 grams?

    Just made and ate the Keto cheese danish. Wow! You get the golden spoon and swoon for this one. So satisfying with a cup of coffee. I did add some vanilla and cinnamon to the cream cheese topper. Maybe next time I’ll try lemon zest, many possibilities. What else do you use fathead dough for?

      I am so happy to hear that, Judy! I have used fathead dough for cinnamon rolls, pizza bites, calzones, Bagels (although they taste like cheese)

      This looks amazing!! Question tho, the ingredients say 1/4c sweetener for the pastry but the instructions don’t mention when to add it in? Thanks for sharing!
