- 170 g (1 3/4 cups) shredded/grated cheese mozzarella is the best or Edam/mild cheese
- 85 g (3/4 cups) almond meal/flour
- 2 tbsp (2 tbsp) cream cheese
- 1 (1 ) egg
- salt to taste to taste
- ½ tsp (1/2 tsp) flavourings of choice optional
Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg, salt, and flavourings, mix gently.
Place in between 2 baking sheets and roll thinly. Remove the top baking sheet. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.
Cut the dough into small bite size pieces. Place each one on a lined baking tray as shown.
Bake at 220C/425F for 5 minutes on each side, or until browned on both side and crisp.
Cool on a wire rack and keep in an airtight container in the fridge. IF the weather is cool, you may store the container in your pantry for up to 3 days.
NotesFat Head pastry can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour.
