Golden Milk Eggnog Latte

 

Golden Milk Eggnog Latte

You won’t even taste the eggnog in this cozy latte, but it will enhance the warming spices inspired by golden milk which are known for their healing and anti-inflammatory properties. It's a caffeine-free, warm drink that will soothe your senses. I was really happy with how this came out and it turned out to be a great use for eggnog flavor.

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.

Servings: 4
Calories: 255.7kcal

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.

Course: Desserts
Keyword: Chef Taffiny Elrod, Strawberry
Keto Chow Flavor: Strawberry
Recipe Creator: Chef Taffiny Elrod
Servings: 8 tarts
Calories: 450kcal
Author: Taffiny Elrod

Equipment

  • food processor
  • cupcake liners or ramekins

Ingredients

CRUST

CHOCOLATE GANACHE LAYER

  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 5 ounces sugar free, semi-sweet chocolate cut in small pieces
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter cut into cubes

STRAWBERRY MOUSSE LAYER

Instructions

  • To make the crust, pulse the strawberries and almonds in the food processor until they are finely ground, then mix in the erythritol, butter, and salt. Blend until it’s all mixed.
  • Press the mixture into the bottoms of the eight liners or ramekins as evenly as possible They should be about 1/2 inch thick.
  • To make the ganache, heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until small bubbles start to break the surface and it's almost simmering. Take the cream off the heat and put all the chocolate into the cream. Let it sit for about a minute for the chocolate to soften. Then gently stir the mixture until it is glossy and all the chocolate is melted. Add the butter and stir gently until it has melted and is mixed in.
  • Pour a layer of ganache over each crust layer, then transfer them to the freezer to set while you make the strawberry mousse.
  • Puree the strawberries to a liquid and strain through a fine sieve. They should yield approximately 1/2 cup of strawberry puree.
  • Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks begin to form, then sprinkle the Keto Chow over the top and mix briefly. Finally add the strawberry puree and whip until it is fully combined. The mixture will be soft but spoonable.
  • Top the crust and chocolate layer with a generous layer of strawberry mousse and return to the freezer to set. Freeze for about an hour until you can remove the muffin liners from the mini tarts to reveal the layers.
  • To serve, decorate with crushed freeze-dried strawberries, melted chocolate, or whipped cream.
  • Store extra tarts in an airtight container in the freezer.

Notes

Keto Chow used regular almonds (unblanched) and they taste wonderful.
The power of your food processor will change the texture, and the color of your dried strawberries will change the color of the bottom layer.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup powdered erythritol sifted
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 tsp water add more as needed
  • food coloring (optional)

Instructions

  • To make the royal icing, beat together erythritol, egg white, 1/2 tsp water, and 1/4 tsp cream of tartar in the work bowl of an electric mixer.
  • If the icing is too thick, add more water 1/2 tsp at a time, blending after each addition until it is pipeable but still quite thick.
  • It should be quite stiff. If you add too much water, you can add more erythritol a teaspoon at a time, but try to stay as close as possible to the original recipe so it will dry and hold together.
