Tips & Tricks

4th July Cheesecake Pie

 

The secret to making the perfect no-bake cheesecake is beating the creamy cheeses thoroughly. This will help create a thick and creamy filling. Using granulated erythritol rather than liquid helps break down the cheese when beating. If you love cheesecakes with more of a tangy flavor, then add a bit of sour cream to the mixture.

Shortbread Baking Mix Crust!

I love Kiss My Keto short bread baking mix! No aftertaste when baked as directed on the box.
I also made cheesecake crust with this baking mix but omitted the egg so it wasn’t a fluffy cake-like crust.
Thanks so much for recipes! New to Keto and have lots to learn 😊

Thank you, Sandra! I’d like to suggest you also check out these keto coffee cake and Danish butter cookies recipes. Both make good use of our Keto Baking Mixes.

Easy but missing sweetness.

This was so easy to make but found a strong aftertaste from this artificial sweetness yet it didn’t have a sweet-dessert like taste. Used a nut crust with cinnamon (due to gluten intolerance). Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi GG! Try using Swerve or mix of erythrithol and stevia.
