Ingredients

Cookies

Butter Cream Filling

Instructions

Making the Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 300F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Add in the egg, heavy cream, butter, vanilla extract, and mix well until a dough forms.
  • Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to desired thickness but no thicker than 1/4 inch.
  • Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter or something that works just as well, cut out circles of dough and lift gently and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Gather up scraps and re-roll until all dough is used up.
  • Bake cookies until firm to the touch, about 25 minutes, depending on the thickness of your cookies. Remove and let cool.

Making the Butter Cream Filling

  • Mix butter together with the powdered sugar alternative, adding 1/2 cup of the sugar at a time until blended.
  • Add Keto Chow and heavy cream and mix well.
  • If you want, you can add some crumbled cookies into your filling or even a tbsp or two of warmed cream cheese.
  • Spoon about 1/2 tbsp of the filling on top of half of the cookies you made earlier, then top with the other half of the cookies.

Notes

At approx 1/8" thick I made 37 cookies, 18 sandwiches.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In the work bowl of an electric mixer, beat the Keto Chow, almond milk, vanilla, and orange extracts together on low speed until the Keto Chow is completely moistened.
  • With the mixer still running, begin adding the cream cheese a couple chunks at a time, mixing after each addition. Beat until fully combined and lighter in texture.
  • Add the butter chunks a couple pieces at a time, beating after each addition. The texture should start to look light and fluffy.
  • Turn the mixer off and add the powdered erythritol, turn the mixer back on at the lowest speed and mix the erythritol in. When it is mixed into the frosting, increase the speed on the mixer and beat until everything is light and fluffy. If the frosting is too thick, you can add more almond milk one teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
  • You can make this frosting with any flavor of Keto Chow you like, just omit the orange extract. Although the orange extract would be delicious with chocolate flavor.

Ingredients

Base

Filling

Top Layer

Instructions

  • Mix all base ingredients together and press into an 8-inch pan, lined with parchment paper.
  • Using a hand mixer, whip filling ingredients to stiff peaks. Filling should be thick but still spreadable. If filling is too thick, whip in heavy cream 1 tbsp at a time until you reach desired texture. If desired, you can add the sweetener in smaller increments to taste.
  • Microwave topping ingredients together in 15-second increments until smooth. Spread evenly onto the base and filling.
  • Chill before serving.

Notes

If you have a hard time finding walnut or pecan meal, our recipe tester simply ground the pecans and walnuts into a flour using her blender.
*Canadian style sour cream is thinner than American style. For a thinner, pudding-like texture, use 4 tablespoons American sour cream + 1/2 cup heavy cream.
**Sweetener can be added in small increments to desired sweetness level.
