Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup confections erythritol

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  • Using an electric/stand mixer, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks. Add in erythritol a little at a time while still whipping
  • Spoon onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and make a little indent in the middle of each one. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Let cool, they will harden as they cool. Use a metal knife or spatula under each one to remove from paper, be careful they are fragile.
  • You can store these at room temperature with a towel over them until you are ready to add the custard.
  • Keep the custard refrigerated until you are ready to eat cookies and pipe custard into each meringue cookie. Can also top with whipped cream if desired. 

Notes

****any little bit of yolk will keep your whites from getting to stiff peaks so be careful separating eggs.

Instructions

FOR COOKIES

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream together butter and sweetener.  Add egg and mix thoroughly.
  • Mix in the the black cocoa, baking powder, and Keto Chow, mixing very slow at first so as not to make a mess.
  • With a silicone spatula, scoop all the batter onto parchment paper and make a uniform shape with your hands; dough will be thick and sticky. Put parchment on top and roll out until it’s about 1/16 inch thick everywhere.
  • Leave parchment on top and chill in fridge for at least 1 hour, but preferably longer. The longer you chill it, the easier it will be to cut out.
  • Right out of the fridge, take off the top parchment paper and use a 2-inch round cutter and cut as many circle cookies as close together as you can. Place each cookie on parchment paper on a sheet pan. These do not spread much so you can put them close together if needed.
  • Work with dough right after taking it from the fridge otherwise it will start to stick. If dough sticks too much, cut all the circles and place dough in freezer for 20-30 minutes and then it should come off the parchment much easier.
  • With the remaining dough, push into the cutter to create remaining cookies as best you can or you could make into cookie crumbles.
  • Bake on 350 for 15 minutes. Add 2-5 minutes for high altitude. The cookie will firm as they cool.
  • NOTE: This has to be chilled before cutting circles. The dough will be too sticky if this step is skipped.

FOR FILLING

  • Cream together all ingredients.
  • Pipe a circle of filling right in the iddle of the cookie and leave room around the edge. Press another cookie on top.
  • Let the cookies set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. You don't have to do this but it sets the frosting so it doesn't all smoosh out when you bit it.
  • (DOUBLE FILLING FOR DOUBLE STUFFED!)

Notes

The thicker the cookie, the more time is needed to bake. For higher altitude, add 2-5 minutes for bake time.

Keto Chicken and Dumplings

This delicious recipe was cooked up by our very own Holly Larrabee and Sarah Young, but was inspired by the original Keto Chow Drop Biscuit recipe and the yummy Cream of Mushroom Soup by Amanda Balle.

Ingredients

CHICKEN

  • 2-3 lbs chicken pieces boneless
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp butter

CREAM OF CHICKEN SAUCE

DUMPLINGS (Keto Chow Drop Biscuits)

Instructions

  • Coat chicken pieces with salt, pepper, and paprika. Melt butter in large skillet. Cook chicken in melted butter. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs work well.
  • Make cream of chicken replacement using 1 c heavy cream, 12 oz water, and 2 servings Savory Chicken Soup Keto Chow. This will not fit in a shaker bottle, but you can mix it in 2 batches. Immersion blender works best. Add to chicken and simmer 30 minutes covered.
  • Make biscuits while simmering. Mix together almond flour, Keto Chow, and baking powder. Cut in butter. You can use your hands or a fork to do this. Add egg whites and mix batter until combined. It will be lumpy from the butter. Stir chicken and soup. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the chicken and soup. Cook covered for 10 minutes and then an additional 10 minutes uncovered. Serve hot!
