Blueberry Pecan Cheese Kringle

     We went with some friends to a Green Bay Packers game, and in the process were introduced to the "Kringle"!  AKA, a delicious Danish filled with Cream Cheese or Fruit, that literally melts in your mouth.  So what's a girl to do but try and create a sugar free version at home.  Each of the 8 servings are only 245 calories, 12.5g carbs, 1.2g fiber, 9g sugar alcohol, 2.3g net carbs, 10g protein and 21g fat.  Follow my lead or create your own path, so many fillings to choose from, so many fruits on the vine.

Ingredients for 8 servings~
1 3/4 cups shredded Mozzarella
1oz/2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
3/4 cup Almond Flour
1 Egg
Dash Salt
4oz/1 cup Cream Cheese
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1/4 cup Lakanto Monk Fruit~use code Paige20 for discount at checkout
1/2 Tablespoon cold Butter
1 Tablespoon chopped Pecans
1 Tablespoon fresh Blueberries
2 Tablespoons Lakanto Confectioners Monk Fruit~use code Paige20 for discount at checkout
1 teaspoon Almond Milk

     Melt Cheese and Cream Cheese for 1 minute in the microwave, stir til blended, then add in Flour, Egg and Salt.  Use mixer to finish incorporating and then knead for 2 minutes.  Wrap in Pam sprayed cling wrap and rest in fridge over night, or for a few hours if you are in a hurry.  When ready, roll out dough into a 10X15 rectangle on a Silpat liner.  Meanwhile, add Cream Cheese to microwave to soften, stir til smooth and blend in Sour Cream and Monk Fruit til fully incorporated and spread in middle, making a smaller rectangle with a 2 inch perimeter.  Cut a 2 inch slit angle on each corner, as well as even slits down the sides.  Fold the 2 ends down over the filling, and fold in each of the side pieces (the center will be exposed), and remove any excess unused dough.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, remove, rub with cold Butter on baked dough, sprinkle with Pecans and Blueberries.  Mix Confectioners Monk Fruit and Almond Milk til smooth, add to baggie, snip corner and drizzle over Kringle.  Enjoy  :)

  1. This. This is exactly why I decided to start blogging. It can be very isolating being home with babies, even if you get out and do stuff each day. It is so nice to read about another woman going through it too!
