Sounds like a recipe you may want to make right away. So let me tell you a little bit about how to make this almond flour biscuit recipe.
The recipe begins by blending the cream cheese, erythritol and salt together. You want the cream cheese to be very soft and smooth so that the next ingredient, the egg, blends into it well. After you add the egg to the cream cheese mix, be sure to scrape down the sides of your bowl. You want to make sure to get every bit of cream cheese off the side of the bowl and blended into the batter so there are no lumps later on.
Add the almond flour and baking powder to the bowl and mix to form a thick batter. The batter will look a little wetter than traditional biscuit dough. That’s okay though! They will bake perfectly. Scoop the batter using an ice cream scoop, tablespoon, or spoon, making mounds that are about 2 tablespoons in size. Resist the urge to flatten the biscuits before baking. They will spread out a little as they bake.
Pop the almond flour biscuits into the oven and bake until they are golden brown on top. When the biscuits come out of the oven, try brushing them with melted butter or heavy cream. This will give them even more flavor.
