Layers of melt-in-your-mouth crust and sweet cream cheese filling, all topped with cinnamon for the perfect Mexican-inspired low-carb dessert.

INGREDIENTS

Dough:

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons Swerve, brown
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 16 oz. cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup Swerve, confectioners
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • lemon zest

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons Swerve, brown
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2: In a microwave-safe large bowl, add in cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and 1 tablespoon of butter. Melt in the microwave in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Mix together.

3:Add remaining dough ingredients to bowl and knead together. If you have a food processor, you can mix all dough ingredients using the dough blade until combined. If you do not have a food processor, just knead with your hands for about 2 minutes or so. Divide dough into 2 equal portions.

4: In an 8×8 dish, place parchment paper on the bottom for easy cleanup. Press 1 of the dough discs in the 8×8 dish to create the bottom layer crust.

5: In a large bowl, add in all ingredients for cream cheese filling. Mix together using a handheld mixer on low until smooth. Pour cream cheese filling on top of the bottom crust.

6: Roll out remaining dough disc and place on top of cream cheese filling.

7: In a small bowl, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Add in 2 tablespoons of brown Swerve and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Stir and pour evenly over dough.

8: Place in the oven for 50-60 minutes. This sopapilla will rise so make sure to keep an eye on it. After baking, remove from oven and let cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting into bars.

9: Enjoy!
