The sweet cherry filling and simple glaze take this keto dessert to another level.



  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3 teaspoons keto sweetener (I used Monk Fruit)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cold cut into small cubes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cherry Filling:

  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 2 teaspoons keto sweetener (I used Monk Fruit)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Glaze (optional):

  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons keto powdered sweetener (Swerve confectioners works well)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

2 To make biscuits:

3 In a medium-sized bowl, mix together almond flour, keto sweetener, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or a fork.


4 Next, stir in eggs and fold in cheese. Combine until it forms a sticky dough.

5With a large spoon (about 2 tablespoons), scoop dough into hand and make a disk. Place dough disk on the baking sheet to bake. In the center of the disk gently press with the back of a spoon. Bake for 10 minutes until cooked and slightly browned. Set aside to cool.

To make the cherry filling:

6 In a small saucepan, over low-medium heat, add in cherries, keto sweetener, cinnamon, xanthan gum, and vanilla extract. Mash cherries and stir together, let cherries simmer for about 5 minutes.


7 Add a dollop of cherry filling to the center of each biscuit.


To make the keto glaze:

8 In a small bowl, whisk together heavy whipping, keto powdered sweetener, and vanilla extract. Let the glaze sit for 5 minutes.


Drizzle glaze over thumbprints. Serve and Enjoy!
