Cheese Danish

Pastry portion:
3 extra large eggs, separated
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
2 Tbs granular Splenda, and 2 Tbs xylitol
1 teaspoon cinnamon
tsp almond extract
3 Tbs. sour cream

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk
2 Tbs granular Splenda, and 2 Tbs xylitol
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
freshly grated lemon zest to taste

Pastry directions:
Separate eggs, putting the whites in a large bowl and the
yolks in a medium bowl. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until very stiff.

Add sour cream, cinnamon,extract, and sweetener to the yolks
and beat well until smooth

Gently fold yolk mixture into the whites, using a spatula.
Blend well. Place a Silpat on a cookie sheet and spray with cooking release spray.
Divide 6 equal mounds of batter to make 6 Danish. Draw a long indent
on each mound down the middle and fill with filling.Leave egg mixture on the sides. Fill a ziplock bag with filling and cut off the corner. Pipe the filling into the indent. Bake about 25-35 minutes at 300 until golden brown. Watch closely at the end.

Let cool before taking off silpat so filling has time to set.

Microwave cream cheese until soft. Mix in
the egg yolk, sweetener, extract, and lemon zest. Fill pastries.

There are many versions of this floating around and I don't know who to credit the original recipe to. Sorry, it was long ago.
