Chocolate Filled Crescent Cookies – Low Carb, Keto, THM S, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Sugar-Free
Mozzarella dough might be the best invention ever. There is a debate about the origin of it but whoever was responsible is a genius.
The first place I ever saw it was the amazing cheese danish at Up Late Anyway. Since then I’ve used my version in a bunch of different recipes.
These were inspired by the fabulous chocolate croissants I had on my honeymoon in Quebec. I hope you enjoy them!
Chocolate Filled Crescent Cookies are grain free, gluten free, sugar-free, keto, low carb and a THM S. They are ideal for when you want something sweet.
- Microwave the mozzarella and cream cheese until it is completely melted. I normally do this in 30-second increments. It takes about 2 minutes. Add the butter. Then the easiest way to make this dough is in a food processor with the dough blade. You can mix and knead by hand if you don't have one. Just mix the baking mix, egg, and gentle sweet into the cheese until it is a uniform color.
- Once the dough is thoroughly mixed roll it out between two pieces of waxed paper or parchment paper until it is about a 11x15 inch rectangle that is 1/3 inch thick.
- Spread the butter on the rolled out dough. Sprinkle with the sweetener and then the chocolate. Cut into long triangles. I
- Roll up the triangles into crescents beginning with the wide end and put them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 until they are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
P.S. I messed up on the cutting. I should've made big rectangles and then did diagonal cuts. Learn from my mistake. There is a much better diagram here: https://www.theredheadbaker.com/mini-butter-croissants/
