Keto Danish Pastries with Strawberries

If you have some fresh berries and ingredients for fathead dough, then you have the basic ingredients to make this recipe. The process is in three stages.

Though not everyone likes cheese with their scones I suppose, I might be in the minority!

When my Dad passed away, we planted a lemon tree Continue reading
