Ingredients

PEANUT BUTTER BARS

FROSTING

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
  • Cream together butter, peanut butter, egg, sweetener, and vanilla for about 1 minute with a mixer on low to medium speed. Add baking soda and Keto Chow and mix again until combined. 
  • Spread mixture in a greased 9x13 baking dish or a ¼ size cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. The mixture will not spread while baking so make sure to spread to the edges.
  • While your bars are cooling, mix together frosting ingredients until smooth and creamy. Once the bars are cooled, spread on chocolate frosting. 

Notes

I softened my frosting for about 10 seconds (watch carefully it melts quick) in the microwave before frosting the bars so that it spread easier. I then set them in the fridge for roughly 30 minutes to set the frosting back up. 
If you wish, you can add a layer of peanut butter between the bars and frosting.

Strawberry Hand Pies

 

Strawberry Hand Pies

These hand pies feature a crisp, short crust and sweet fruit filling, just like the pies grandma used to make. They are cute enough to offer your valentine, and sturdy enough to pack in a lunch box.

Equipment

  • cookie sheet, rolling pin, heart shaped cookie cutter, pastry brush

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Strawberry Keto Chow plus extra for rolling
  • 2 ounces fine almond flour
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter cold, cut into cubes
  • 1 large egg separated
  • 1-2 tbsp cold water
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 4 tsp sugar free strawberry jam

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil.
  • Mix the Keto Chow and almond flour together in a large bowl.
  • Add the butter and cut it into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse sand with a few pebble-sized pieces of butter still visible.
  • Add the egg white and one tablespoon of water and mix until the dough starts to come together. When you pinch the dough between your finger and thumb it should hold together, If it doesn’t add the second tablespoon of water and knead together.
  • Shape the dough into a ball; wrap it in plastic and let it rest for about 5 minutes.
  • While the dough is resting, make an egg wash by mixing the egg yolk with the heavy cream.
  • Sprinkle some Keto Chow on your work surface and roll the dough out to about 1/4-inch thickness. If it starts to stick, sprinkle more Keto Chow as you work.
  • Cut out eight heart shapes. Place a teaspoon of jam in the center of four hearts then brush their edges with the egg wash. Place the other four hearts on top and gently seal the edges. Prick the tops with a fork or a small knife to create small steam vents.
  • Lightly brush the tops of the pies with egg wash and transfer them to the prepared cookie sheet.
  • You can use the extra dough to cut shapes to decorate your pies if you like. 
  • Bake until the edges are golden, and the bottoms are golden brown and crisp - 15-20 minutes.

Notes

If using a 3” cookie cutter, you may be able to get 5 hand pies to use up all the dough. 
Do not add too many vent holes or the top crust will fall apart and the jam will leak through.
