Common Questions About the Recipe
No, fresh mozzarella will not work in the recipe, as it is too soft. I recommend the sliced mozzarella that is solid, or Jack cheese for the best results. I tried some other kinds of cheeses that did not work out.
I recommend full-fat cream cheese to keep the carbs low and the fat content high for keto diets. If you’re not on a low carb diet, then you could.
Pumpkin puree is unsweetened and contains just pumpkin. Pumpkin pie mix contains sugar and spices. If you are on a keto diet then it is important to use pumpkin puree.

Keto Pumpkin Cheese Danish Turnovers
- 6 Mozzarella Cheese Slices square or round (not the fresh kind), or Monterey Jack cheese slices
- ⅓ cup full-fat Cream Cheese softened
- ½ tbsp Heavy Cream
- ½ tsp Lemon Juice
- 3 tbsp Low Carb Powdered Confectioner’s Sweetener divided
- 2 tbsp Pumpkin Puree not sweetened pumpkin pie mix
- ½ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- ¼ tsp Cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 375℉ (190℃) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer with a mixing bowl to mix: cream cheese, heavy cream, pumpkin puree, lemon juice, pumpkin spice, and 2 tbsp of the powdered sweetener. Mix until combined and creamy. Set aside.
- Arrange cheese slices on parchment paper and bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the edges of cheese start to brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes (leaving the oven on) just enough to let the cheese get somewhat firm enough to fold, but not too hard.
- Add 2 teaspoons of the cream cheese pumpkin mixture to the middle of a corner of each cheese slice.
- Fold cheese over making a half-circle or triangle shape (depending on cheese slice shape) and gently press the outer edges with hands to close.
- Return the baking sheet with the turnovers back into the 375℉ (190℃) oven and bake for 2 minutes more, just to warm the filling in the center and seal the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool for a minute or two.
- Gently blot turnovers with a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
- Sprinkle the turnovers with the 1 tbsp remaining powdered sweetener.
- Lightly sprinkle the turnovers with cinnamon & serve.
