Recipe Name: Cream Cheese Danish with Pecans

Estimated Prep Time: 35

Ingredient List and Amount used:

2 cups of Almond Flour
1-1/4 cup of cold cream cheese, 1 and 1/4 bar of cold cream cheese
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup of fresco cheese crumbles, can substitute mozzarella
2 cups of cheese shreds, I used a 5 cheese italian blend
2 whole jumbo eggs
pinch of salt
2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup of Splenda, or sweetener of your choice

Recipe instructions: Beat the butter and its equivalent amount of cream cheese in the food processor, add the appropriate amount of sweetener to taste. Stir in the pecans by hand and set aside in the refrigerator. Combine the remainder of the cream cheese, almond flour, eggs, fresco cheese crumbles, salt, sweetener and baking soda in the food processor. If using Splenda, I used 1/2 cup and added a few drops of lemon juice to balance the Splenda. Once all is combined transfer to a large bowl and use a mixer to add the cheese shreds. Refrigerate or place in the freezer until the dough can be handled easily. Roll out in your hands ping pong ball sized rolls, flatten slightly and place the cream cheese butter mix in the middle. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.

General Comments : Do this in batches as it will be a big job for your food processor, finish it in a large bowl with a stand mixer or hand mixer.
