  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 cup no sugar added strawberry jam


  • 6 1/2 tbsp powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener, 80g
  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp light cream or milk, 40ml
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Start by grinding the dry ingredients for the pastry dough in a food processor until fine.
  2. Add cold, chopped butter to the dry mixture and pulse until the butter is smaller and coated with flour.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, add cold water and egg white, and mix until a rough dough forms.
  4. Knead the dough briefly, then wrap it in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Roll out the chilled dough between parchment paper, folding and rolling several times to create layers.
  6. Chill the dough again for another 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  8. Roll out the dough and cut circles using a glass or mug. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  9. Prepare the cream cheese filling by beating together cream cheese, sweetener, and vanilla extract.
  10. Divide the cream cheese and strawberry jam among half of the dough circles.
  11. Top with remaining dough circles and seal the edges with your fingers and a fork.
  12. Make a small cut in the top of each pie for steam to escape.
  13. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
  14. Drizzle with the sweet glaze before serving.
