About Lori Allred

I started doing keto in 2017 after my trainer recommended it. I had already been eating no sugar, low carb, low fat, moderate protein for a year and not seeing any change. I instantly felt better, more energy and love how I feel living the keto life. I live in Utah. I've been married for 27 years to my recently keto-converted hubby and have two adult kids! I am a marketing professional by trade. And quilt and travel the world in my spare time!

Equipment

  • Pizzelle Iron, small bowls or teacups

Ingredients

FILLING

  • 3 cups marscarpone cheese
  • 2 pints fresh raspberries washed & dried (reserve 8 for garnish)
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol
  • 1 tsp. pure vanille extract

COOKIE CUPS

Instructions

  • To make the filling, mix together the mascarpone cheese, fresh raspberries, powdered erythritol, and vanilla extract in a small mixing bowl.
  • Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until ready to assemble the baskets.
  • To make the cookie baskets, beat the eggs with an electric mixer for at least three minutes, or until they are light, fluffy, and doubled in volume. This step is important because it gives the cookies a light texture and makes the batter much easier to work with.
  • With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the erythritol, then the oil and vanilla extract.
  • Mix in the Keto Chow and salt, mixing until fully combined.
  • Allow the batter to rest while you preheat a pizzelle iron. Turn the small bowls upside down; you will be using them to shape the cooked pizzelles.
  • When it is heated, drop a small ball of dough near the back of the iron. The ball should be about a Tbsp. but it will depend on the size of your iron.
  • Bake the cookie according to the manufacturer's directions until slightly golden and firm enough to carefully remove from the iron. (Generally this would be about two minutes but each iron is different.)
  • Once you have carefully removed the pizzelle, drape it immediately over the upturned bowl. Press it gently around the bowl to shape it into a basket. Another small bowl can be placed over the cookie to help form the shape. Allow the cookie to cool until it holds its shape, about two minutes, then set it on a tray upside down to cool completely. Repeat until eight baskets have been made.
  • When all the baskets are completely cool, fill each with approximately 1/4 cup filling and garnish with the reserved raspberries and fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately after filling.

Ingredients

FILLING

  • 1 cup pecan raw, unsalted
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 6 oz. heavy whipping cream
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar erythritol
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

CAKE

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325℉.
  • Once preheated, spread one cup of pecans on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for eight minutes.
  • Take out the baking sheet and sprinkle one cup of coconut flakes over pecans and return to the oven for two minutes to very lightly toast the coconut. Leave the oven at 325℉.
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cream, egg yolks, butter, sweetener, and vanilla on medium, whisking constantly so it doesn't burn. Cook for about five minutes, or until it begins to thicken. It's done when it's reached the thickness of condensed milk. When it's ready, pour into a cool bowl so it stops cooking.
  • Chop roasted pecans and coconut finely. Stir into the thickened mixture. Let it sit at room temperature for 90 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the cake. Butter the sides and bottom of two small (8- or 9-inch) cake pans, then line the bottom of each pan with parchment paper.
  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in a small bowl along with the butter. Microwave for 45 seconds, then stir. Everything should be melted. If not, put it back in for 15-20 seconds. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Using a stand mixer or electric mixer, beat the eggs on low for 30 seconds, or until frothy. Then increase speed to high and beat about 5 minutes, or until light in color, and about tripled in volume.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl, then set aside.
  • Pour the melted chocolate/butter mixture, as well as the vanilla and heavy cream, into the eggs and beat until combined.
  • Fold in the dry ingredients gently. The mixture will lose some air.
  • Pour evenly into the prepared pans and place on the center rack of the oven.
  • Bake at 325℉ for 25-35 minutes, or until they are bouncy to the touch, and a knife comes out of them clean.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Turn cakes out of the pans. Put one on a serving plate and cover with half of the filling. Place the other cake on top and evenly spread on the remaining filling. Decorate with unroasted pecans and coconut and serve.
  • Store any leftover cake in the fridge, but allow it to come to room temperature so that the filling softens before serving.
