A cookie crust with a luscious cheesecake filling makes for the most decadent keto dessert.
- 1 package Pyure Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
- 1 egg
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 16 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup Pyure All-Purpose Stevia Sweetener blend
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a muffin tin with cupcake wrappers and set aside.
In a large bowl, follow the steps to create the cookie dough from Pyure Bakeable Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix. You’ll just need to stir the cookie mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick of unsalted butter together.
Scoop a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough and place it into the lined muffin tin. Press down firmly with fingers or the back of a spoon. If you notice the dough sticking to your fingers or spoon, dip the spoon or your fingers into some water before pressing down.
In a large bowl, add softened cream cheese and mix on low until cream cheese is smooth. Add in room-temperature eggs and continue to mix for about 30 seconds. Next add in granular sweetener, salt, vanilla, and lemon juice. Continue mixing for 1 minute until filling has a smooth consistency.
Add cream cheese filling on top of the chocolate chip cookie dough evenly, but also leaving about 1/4″ from the top since they will rise a little in the oven.
Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow mini cheesecakes to cool completely. Once cooled, place in fridge 1-2 hours to firm up before serving. Enjoy!

These delicious mini cheesecakes with cookie dough crust have only 7 grams of net carbs.
Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Pyure) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.
