Dough:
  1. Add the mozzarella and cream cheese to a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Heat on high for about 1 1/2 minutes and stir to blend.

  4. Stir in the almond flour, baking powder, egg, vanilla, stevia, and monkfruit.
  5. Knead the dough in the bowl until all of the ingredients are incorporated. It will seem like the egg will never be mixed in but it will if you keep kneading and squeezing.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  7. Divide the dough into 8 pieces.
  8. Roll each piece in a ball and place on a silplat lined baking sheet.
  9. Flatten slightly.
  10. Create a hollow in the center with your thumbs.
  11. Sprinkle each center with some of the pecans, fill with cream cheese filling, and sprinkle with a few more of the pecans.
  12. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until firm and golden.
Filling:
  1. Warm the cream cheese in the microwave until it is soft.
  2. Beat in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Use to fill the kolaches
