I got a little more creative with this idea and didn’t follow just one recipe.
I preheated my oven to 350 degrees.
Crust
– 1 cup of almond flour
– 1/8 cup of coconut oil, melted
– 1 TBSP Pyure
– Sprinkle of sea salt
– dash of homemade vanilla extract
Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Place in the bottom of 4 small mason jars. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then let jars cool before adding filling.
Filling
– 4 ounces full fat cream cheese
– 4 ounces 1/3 fat cream cheese
– 1 TBSP Pyure
– 1 TBSP lemon juice
– 1/2 TSP homemade vanilla extract
– 1 pastured egg
Place cream cheese in blender and blend well. Add Pyure, lemon juice & vanilla extract and blend until mixed well. Add egg and blend just until mixed in well. Pour filling mixture into cooled mason jars & bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until filling is set and top is just slightly golden brown. Cool jars on counter for a few minutes & then place in the refrigerator (on a towel) for an hour or until cold.
