Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a small baking sheet. Mine is a 7 x 9.5 toaster oven size. An 8 x 8 baking dish would work as well.
Put the cheese and one tablespoon of butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave one minute. Stir. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir. At this point, all the cheese should be melted. Microwave 30 more seconds until uniform and gloopy (it should look like cheese fondue at this point). Mix in the egg, almond extract, 1 tablespoon sweetener, and almond flour. You may need to knead it by hand to thoroughly incorporate the ingredients. Once it is a uniform color press it out into the baking pan.
You can use the same bowl to mix the almonds, softened butter, and ¼ cup sweetener. Spread this out on top of the dough. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoon sweetener.
Cool for at least 10 min. Cut into squares and serve.
A baking mix of equal parts almond flour, coconut flour, and ground golden flax may be used in place of the almond flour.Notes on Sweeteners:
