INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease baking sheet with your choice of grease (I use coconut oil).

Base recipe

  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, monkfruit, egg, vanilla extract and almond extract with a hand beater. Make sure it is well blended.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add almond flour mixture to cream cheese mixture and continue beating with hand beater.
  4. The mixture will be sticky. Form a large ball and just manipulate it a bit and it loses the stickiness.
  5. Form 1 inch ball and place on prepared baking sheet. Flatten just a tad so they are flat on the top yet still very thick.
  6. Bake for 11 minutes or until the bases just starts to get brown.
  7. Allow to mostly cool on the baking sheet and then move to cooling rack.
