  5. When the almond flour and cheese are nearly combined add in a beaten egg white and stir well

  7. Lay the dough on a silicone baking sheet. Place a second silicone baking sheet on top and spread the dough into a thin rectangle.
  8. Spread the filling along one end of the dough and using the silicone baking mat to help you carefully roll the dough so that the dough encases the filling. Pinch the ends together.
