I’ve been making mini cheesecake muffins for about a year now, and they are a-MAY-zing! (I’ll post the recipe soon.) Normally I just pour the cheesecake mixture into cupcake liners, but this time I decided to make them look like REAL mini cheesecakes – and that meant they had to have a pie crust on the bottom. After a little bit of “research” (Google) I managed to find a recipe that fit my two requirements – 1 – it had to be easy, and 2 – it had to use almond flour.
Why almond flour? Well, for one thing, I try to avoid carbs whenever I can, which means no regular flour. I also happen to have a five-pound bag of flour in my cupboard that I’m trying to finish.
I was sooo happy with the way this crust came out! Especially because I used regular almond flour as opposed to BLANCHED almond flour, which I mistaken bought. I only made six cheesecake “cupcakes” with it and I had a bunch left over, so I’m guessing that this recipe would net about a dozen cupcakes. I’m really looking forward to trying this recipe in a full-sized pie, maybe a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. I’ll keep you posted!
