When it comes to trying to decide what my favorite time of year is there is a battle in my brain between Halloween and Christmas.

And, just to make it clear, Halloween aka Spooky Season starts September 1st in my house!

Christmas would start the day after Halloween if I had my way, but my husband makes me wait until the day after Thanksgiving before I can put up any Christmas decorations. Hhmmppffff

Anywho, back to Halloween.

I have always, from childhood into adulthood, loved the creepy parts of Halloween.

I went to haunted houses as young as they would let me me in.

I watched scary movies from as young as I could get away with it.

I dressed up…well, I still dress up 😂

So I guess it could be viewed as a bit of an obsession?

Of course baking season is another of my faves. That starts September 1st as well and last straight through until the new Year! So let’s start off with a recipe I originally made in all of it’s carby goodness, with pie dough.

For these Keto Cheesecake Mummy Cookies I decided to ditch the pie dough and go for my Keto Slice and Bake Sugar Cookie dough.

This dough gives you a soft and tender cookie that you top with a cheesecake “guts” and then keto cream cheese frosting “bandages”.

Super fun and really delicious spooky season recipe for the win!

STEP 2

Add 1/2 cup softened butter and process until a smooth dough is made.

STEP 5

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place parchment paper or a silicone mat on 2 baking sheets

STEP 6

In a medium bowl, combine the first four ingredients for the cheesecake layer.

STEP 7

Add a enough of the red food dye to make the mixture a deep red and combine.

STEP 8

Then add just a few drops of the black food dye. You want to try to get a blood red color. Combine and set aside.

STEP 9

Remove the dough from the freezer and unwrap. Using a sharp serrated knife, slice the dough into 18 rectangular cookies.

STEP 10

Arrange the rectangles, spaced apart on prepared baking sheets and spread cheesecake filling onto each rectangle, trying to leave a slight edge on all sides uncovered

STEP 11

Place one baking sheet in the refrigerator, place the other in the preheated oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cookies begin to turn golden brown around the edges. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and set it aside to cool. Place the remaining baking sheet in the oven and bake as before. Allow the cookies to cool completely before handling them. They are very soft and crumbly while they are warm.

STEP 12

Meanwhile in a medium bowl, combine the ingredients for the frosting. If not using the candy eyes, reserve a couple tablespoons of the frosting to add black food coloring to.

STEP 13

Place the white frosting into a piping bag with a small ribbon piping tip or plastic food bag and snip the corner off for piping.

STEP 14

Once the cookies have completely cooled carefully pipe “bandages” criss crossing the cookie.

STEP 15

Place the candy eyes on each cookie or add black food coloring to the reserved frosting and pipe 2 eyes onto each cookie.

FAQS ABOUT KETO CHEESECAKE MUMMY COOKIES

Can I make these cookie with just coconut flour and no almond flour?

Unfortunately you cannot substitute coconut flour for almond flour on a 1:1 basis. Also, coconut flour requires more liquid. I have not tried it, but have heard that sunflower seed flour can be substituted for almond flour on a 1:1. If you try it, please let me know how it works.

Can I make this dough ahead and leave it in the freezer for some time?

Yes, this dough can be made and frozen for up to 3 months.

Are these cookies crispy or soft?

This recipe makes a very tender and soft cookie, which is what I like. I have not tried making them thinner, or cooking them longer as I acheived the texture I was going for with this recipe. If you do try them thinner, or baked longer let me know what you think.
