Strawberry Cream Cheese Danish

Advanced & Core Plan

A co-worker challenged me to come up with a danish recipe. These came out great on the first try! Give them a try. There are probably dozens of different ways these can be prepared (using different berries, adding cheese to the batter, using chocolate, etc.) If you alter the recipe and get a winning combo, post them here.

2 cups almond flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup melted butter
2-3 tablespoons erythritol (or stevia to taste)
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 organic eggs
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup plain yogurt or kefir

 

Cheese Filling:

Softened organic cream cheese with vanilla and stevia (to taste). I used a block of organic cream cheese with 4 droppers of liquid stevia and a teaspoon of vanilla.

Strawberry Filling:

Take a bag frozen strawberries and put them in a saucepan.  Heat until strawberries are softened and start to thicken (the natural pectin in the berries will do this).  Mash with a potato masher for chunkier strawberry filling or transfer to a blender and blend.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll and flatten into a 2 inch oval and place on parchment lined baking sheets.  Add a dollop of cream cheese and top with a small spoonful of strawberries.  Fold up the edges.

Bake for 20-30 minutes.

 

(Note:  Baking is not my favorite thing to do so rolling the dough out didn’t happen but if you make the dough and chill it, you should be able to roll it out and make the danishes look more attractive.)
