Kevin's Cheesecake, Pie & Cobbler Recipes

16 servings 5.25 carbs per serving using liquid splenda as sweetener.


I need to point out this cheescake is not major sweet by design. It has a big chocolate bite that will work wonders for a chocolate fix. The drizzle[/COLOR](1/2 oz.unsweetened chocolate, 1 tablespoon cocoa butter, sweeten to taste) [COLOR=DarkRed]I put over it was sweet as a hint of contrast.

Crust
4 T. butter, softened
3 T. cocoa butter, melted
1 oz. (1 square)unsweetened bakers chocolate (finely grated)
(approx 1/2 sweetener equivalent)
2 T. granular erythritol
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup almond flour
3 T. wheat protein isolate 5000
1 T. resistant wheat starch
1 T. wheat bran
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, chocolate, egg, erythritol, Sweetner and vanilla till well combined.
Combine dry ingredients and add to butter mixture; beat until combined and smooth.
Scoop a tablespoon of the dough and place on greased or parchment-lined baking sheet into about 6 equal cookies about an inch apart.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 – 20 minutes.

Note: When cookies are cool crush into 1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs.

Spray bottom and sides of 9 inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, toss together crumbs and cocoa butter until crumbs are evenly coated. Pat mixture into bottom of springform pan and set aside.(At this time I covered sides and bottom double layered with foil to prevent springform from leaking latter when it bakes in a water bath.)

Filling
8 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
22 ounces ricotta cheese
(1/4 sweetener equivalent)
(1/4 sweetener equivalent)
1/3 c. granular erythritol
1/3 c. polyD
1 t. vanilla extract
4 large eggs

Put chocolate, 1/4 sweetener and cream in medium bowl and place bowl over saucepan filled 1/3 of the way with simmering water. Heat, stirring frequently until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. remove bowl from over pan and set aside to cool.

In mixer bowl, beat ricotta cheese at low speed until very smooth and creamy. Add 1/4 sweetener, erythritol, polyD and mix well. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add chocolate mixture and mix to combine.

Pour filling into prepared pan and tap lightly to knock out some air. Place in a large roasting pan and and fill 1 1/2" to 2" with very hot water. Cover roasting pan with foil and bake 55 - 60 min. or until set on sides but still jiggly in the center. When done, remove from water bath and allow to cool. Remove sides of pan and chill for at least 3 hours before serving.
Best aged 24 hours.
Enjoy!

pocket pies

Several weeks ago I was watching the Food Network and saw the "Good Eats" show by my hero Alton Brown called "A pie in every pocket" which sent me on a mission to make a LC pocket pie. Not intending to mess with his technique, I followed his directions for making the pies exactly. The only thing I changed were the ingredients of the dough to make it LC.

It is also not my intent to suggest the filling for these pie which can range from sweet to savory.

With that said, here is the link to his original recipe: Alton Brown's Pocket Pies

And this is my version of it:

1 1/2 cups Carbalose flour
1/2 cup resistant wheat starch
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
6 tablespoons shortening
6 tablespoons half/half
1 egg mixed with 1 to 2 teaspoons water


In the mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.

Add the shortening and knead it into the flour with your hands until it is crumbly. Add the milk all at once and mix in with a spatula until it begins to come together.

Lightly flour your hands and the countertop and turn the dough out onto the countertop. Knead the dough ball, folding over 10 to 20 times.

Using a rolling pin roll the dough to 1/3 to 1/2-inch thickness, then cut into rounds using a 2 1/4-inch ring.
Roll each round as thinly as possible or to 5 to 6 inches in diameter.
Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling onto the dough, brush the edges of half of the dough lightly with the egg wash, fold over and seal the edges together with the tines of a fork, dipping it into flour as needed. Gently press down to flatten and evenly distribute the filling and snip or cut 3 slits in the top of the pie.

To bake pies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place finished pies onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.


Your imagination is the only limit here.
I got 10 pocket crusts at 4 carbs each plus whatever filling you use.





Ok once you get your dough to a workable state, roll it out to about 1/8 inch thick and cutout 4 1/2 in. diameter circles with a floured thin edge of a bowl.

Then make your pocket pie like you would a filled raisin cookie. Put 1 circle on the cookie sheet putting the filling in the middle and brush a 1/2 in around the outside edge with the egg wash. Place another circle on top and press together where the egg wash is. Then crimp completely around the outside edge with the tip of a fork. Cut 3 slits in the top and bake per recipe

Actually these could be made large or small which ever you like.

I took the excess dough and wrapped it in plastic and fridged it till the first batch was done then rolled out and made more.

Hope this helps until you get used to working with the dough.











After I took a big bite

I decided to try this from childhood memory.
But since apple are higher in natural sugar and carbs, I left them out and dare anybody to tell the difference.

Mock Apple Strawberry Crisp
6 servings at 3.5 carbs each.

1 medium zucchini
10 strawberries, sliced
1/2 c. wheat protein isolate 5000
1/2 c. almond flour
1/4 c. brown sugar DiabetiSweet
6 T. cold butter (cut in pieces)
1 t. cinnamon
2 T. Davinci simple syrup
1 T. lemon juice
1/2 c. + 3 T. equivalent liquid splenda
2 T. Old fashion Quaker Rolled Oats


Peel, cut lengthwise and remove seed (I used a melon baller) from zucchini.



Slice to resemble apple slices in a small mixing bowl, coat with lemon juice, Davinci syrup, 3 T. equivalent liquid splenda and microwave for 1 min then set aside.



Slice strawberries and combine with zucchini then transfer to a 9 X 9 baking dish.



In a large mixing bowl combine wheat protein isolate, almond flour, brown sugar DiabetiSweet(mixed with 1/2 c. equivalent liquid splenda), cinnamon, and Old fashion Quaker Rolled Oats.
Then cut cold butter into flour mixture till like a coarse meal and top the zucchini and strawberries.



Bake in a 350 oven for 35 until nice and bubbly.
For the last 3 min I turned on the broiler to get the crisp to a light golden brown.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Enjoy![/COLOR]

Kevin's Cheesecake, Pie & Cobbler Recipes

You guys have been making me hungry with all this talk about peanutbutter pie so I decided to try my hand at it.

You can't have peanutbutter without chocolate so I made one of my Mock Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust and let it cool.



Then in an electric mixing bowl I combined:

8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup LC crunchy peanutbutter

I then added and mixed in:

1 cup sifted vanilla whey protein powder
2 Tablespoons of Davinci peanutbutter syrup
1 Tablespoon heavy cream
1 cup equivilent liquid splenda

When it was well combined and smooth I folded in:

1/2 can SF Land O Lakes Whipped Heavy Cream

When completely folded in I put the filling into the cooled pie crust and shaved part of a 1 carb chocolate bar on top and chilled to set in freezer for 15 minutes. I then transfered it to the fridge till it was time to serve....

Yum!
Hope you enjoy.

8 servings @ 4.5 carbs each

I am always striving to bring the carb counts down in foods while trying to make them as tasty as possible. Earlier this year I did some experimenting and came up with a carbalose/resistant wheat starch crust that I was very happy with.

I plan on doing some more experimenting in the next couple week and will using this thread to post my results and things I learn in the process.

Feel free to join in on the fun.

I will start this out by listing the recipe for the carbalose/resistant wheat starch crust and then go from there.

1/3 c. + 1 T. shortening (I used crisco green with no trans fats)
3/4 c. Carbalose flour
1/4 c. resistant wheat starch
2 T. + 1 t. cold water
Cut shortening into flour until the particles are like small peas.
Sprinkle in water, 1 T. at a time tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry is clinging to the side of the bowl.

Roll out between 2 lightly dusted(WPI) sheets of wax paper.


Prick crust all over with a fork and bake 350° for 16 min.


In this following picture you can see the layers of flakiness in this LC crust. Counting 8 serving it adds only 2.25 carbs for a single crust and 4.5 carbs for a double crust pie. You can easily compare the taste to any high or low carb crust.

This morning I took the basic general recipe and lowered the carbs by using a nut flour/ wpi 5000 / RWS combination. The following is the recipe and results.

1/3 c. + 1 T. shortening (I used crisco green with no trans fats)
1/2 c. Wheat Protein Isolate 5000
6 T. almond flour
2 T. resistant wheat starch
1 T. + 1 t. cold water
Cut shortening into flour until the particles are like small peas.
Sprinkle in water, 1 T. at a time tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry is clinging to the side of the bowl.

Roll out between 2 lightly dusted(WPI) sheets of wax paper.


Prick crust all over with a fork and bake 350° for 18 min.









As you can see this version has a few layers but the almond flour takes away the flakiness and adds a crumble to it. This could be good or bad depending on what you are looking for. The taste was great and it was very low carb. Also note that the water was reduced by 2 T.(I am guessing because of the oils in the nut flour).
A single crust is 7 carbs making it less than 1 carb per slice if your cutting 8 slices.

Just as a side note, I fried 2 over easy eggs and plated them on 2 serving of this crust for a 3.5 carb egg and pastry crust breakfast....Yum!

1/4 c. resistant wheat starch
2 T. + 1 t. cold water
Cut shortening into flour until the particles are like small peas.

Roll out between 2 lightly dusted(WPI) sheets of wax paper.
Invert into a 9 inch pie plate and press into place.

Prick crust all over with a fork.

1.) Bake pie crust in preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until set, but not browned. Cool completely.


Filling

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped
1 cup light isomalt syrup **
4 large eggs
1 cup (6 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries

2.) Melt butter and chocolate together and set aside

3.) In a medium bowl, whisk together isomalt syrup and eggs.
Add the chocolate mixture and blend until smooth

4.) Place cooled pie shell on a cookie sheet, and pour in filling. Sprinkle cranberries evenly on top.

Bake in preheated 325 degree oven 45 minutes or until center is just set.
Cool for at least 2 hours before serving.

** Note: I disolved 1/2 cup isomalt in 1 cup of davinci simple syrup to make this isomalt syrup.









lol, it was all I could do to wait the 2 hours that it suggested you wait to serve this.

The contrast of this pie is sinful.

Silky smooth chocolate with an occasional cranberry burst to delight your senses set on a flaky pastry crust.

Major Yum!!!

I ran with this idea and this was the results:

1/2 cup coconut oil
4 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup granular erythritol (ground into powder for a volume of almost 1/2 cup)
1 splenda quick pack
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon orange cream flavor oil

Put the coconut oil and cream cheese in a glass mixing bowl and microwave the two until the coconut oil is almost completely melted. (approx 30 to 40 sec.on high)
Removed the bowl and wisk the two together for about 1 min....noting that the oil and cream cheese are separated.
Return the bowl to the microwave and nuke for an additional 30 to 40 sec on high then remove it and wisk in the powdered erythritol until the mixture is smooth and creamy with no separation.
Then wisk in the splenda quick pack, vanilla, and flavor oil until well combined.

Spoon into mini muffin(tart) pan and put in freezer to set.

These are excellent!!

Kevin's Cheesecake, Pie & Cobbler Recipes

First I would like to apologize for the long thread but I felt it neccessary for the explaination.

Low Carb Rugelach (yeild 2 dozen @ just a hair over 1 carb each)

Back in Janurary I saw a thread posted by babydollsea(Marla) asking if anyone could convert a recipe for Nut Kolacky. At the time I was in the middle of a dozen other projects so I put it on my long list of things to try.

Here was the thread:
http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-low-carb.html

In that thread theislandgirl(Jude) posted a recipe for Rugelach that looked very similar so I did some research and found 3 other thread here of attempts to convert these cookies.

Here are those threads:
http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-rugelach.html

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...ke-recipe.html

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-happened.html

The main sticking point(excuss the pun) seemed to be the texture of the dough and the difficulty of rolling the cookies into their shape without being to soft and sticky or falling apart.

Anyway, a few days ago a friend(lowcarbbarb) issued me a challenge(and you all know how hard it is for me to pass up a challenge) to try my hand at these cookies so I dug out my old research and went to work.

Some of the background that Barb gave me was that there are two forms of this dough, one with sugar in it and one without and being a low carb cookie I choose to use the one without. For those of you that may prefer a sweeter version of this cookie I am sure some added erythritol or diabetisweet to the dough would work the same.

The following is a half recipe of most of the recipes that I found and was given and since I was treading on uncharted waters I chose the smaller batch. There are also several steps to getting the dough to a workable state so this is not a whip up quick recipe.

Dough

4 oz. softened cream cheese (4 carbs)
4 T. softened butter
1 cup http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...flour-mix.html (9 carbs)

Place cream cheese and butter in an electric mixer and cream together at low speed until combined.
Add the flour and mix until a soft dough is formed.
Divide the dough in half and cover each half with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 hours or until the dough firms enough to roll in a ball.
Once the dough had firmed I removed it from the frige and place it between two pieces of parchment and rolled it out to about 9 inches in diameter and approx 1/8 inch thick.
Then return the rolled out dough(as is in the parchment) to the fridge until the dough is firm enough to remove the parchment without sticking(approx. 2 more hours). Below you can see what the dough disks looked like at this point.
Then placing the dick on a new sheet of parchment paper and with a pizza cutter or knife, slice the disk as you would a pie or pizza in wedges.
The size of the slices are optional but I found the larger the the slices the easier they were to roll.
I chose 12 slices for mine and that worked well for me.
Then return the wedges to the frige while you prepare the filling.

Filling

My research showed a gazillion different filling you can use for these but the the common theme seemed to be a (fruit and nut) or a (buttery, sugar, cinnamon,and nut) filling. Mainly they need to be spreadable.

I chose the following:

1/4 cup SF Orange Marmalade (8 carbs)
1/4 cup chopped pecans (1 carb)

and

3 T. softened butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans (1 carb)
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 T. diabetisweet brown (3 carbs)

Once the filling is prepared, spread a thin layer of the filling on each wedge and roll up starting at the wide end of the wedge

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place rugelach's on a parchment lined cookie sheet and sprinkle each with a few grains of diabetisweet. I used less than a tsp. for all 2 dozen.
Ten bake on middle shelf for approx 26 min or until golden brown.
To assure even browning rotate cookie sheet half way through baking.

Cool and enjoy!!

Cinnamon Pecan Filling

Kevin's Cheesecake, Pie & Cobbler Recipes

Today I got around to finally trying some puff pastry that I have had on my long list of things to LC.
Although it is a fairly basic recipe, I have shyed away from trying it because of the time involved and i didn't want to be disappointed.

The ingredients are simple:

1 2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 sticks of butter
1/2 cup ice water

For my flour I decided to use the carbalose version of my cake and cookie flour mix which follows:

1 cup LC cake or cookie flour mix (12 carbs)

1/2 cup carbalose
1/4 cup wheat protein isolate 5000
1 Tbs wheat protein isolate 8000
1/8 cup almond flour
1 Tbs resistant wheat starch 75
1 tsp not/Sugar


Using that mix makes the total carb count for this recipe of puff pastry 20 carbs.
Now that I have this attempt under my belt I will be trying this same recipe with the carbquik version of the flour mix which will reduce the total carbs to 15.

Cut each stick of butter into 3 lengthwise strips and arrange on foil in a rectangle as follows, then wrap and refrigerate until the dough is ready.



In an electric mixing bowl, mix the flour and salt then add ice water and mix with paddle until the flour disappears and the dough comes together.
Replace the paddle with the dough hook and form the dough into a ball and knead the dough with the hook for about 10 mins until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Then cover and let the dough rest for 20 minutes.

When dough has rested, roll dough out on a lightly flour surface into a 6 X 16 rectangle. Place the chilled butter on half the dough 1/2 inch from edge and fold the other half of the dough over the butter and seal the edges with fingers.
Refrigerate in foil for 30 minutes.



After the 30 mins. on a lightly floured surface, lay out the dough and lightly tap the dough with a rolling pin to flatten the butter some and then roll out the dough to 18 X 6 rectangle trying to keep the corners as straight as possible.
From the short side fold dough into thirds making sure the edges and corners are even and press edges firmly to seal.
You should have a 6 inch square. Refrigerate in foil for 30 minutes.

This tri-fold step should be repeated at least 3 more times, chilling after each fold.

I did a total of 6 folds all together to acheive 18 layers of dough and butter. The more layers the in the dough the more layers in the final pastry.

After all your folds are done, refrigerate in foil until ready to use or store in freezer for later use.

At this point I wanted to try it in a recipe so I choose a suggestion that Jude gave me that was really simple for parmesan breadsticks.

For it you use.

1/2 recipe of puff pastry
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Roll out the puff pastry into a 1/8 inch thick rectangle on parmesan cheese pressing it into the dough.
Cut 1/2 inch strips with a pizza cutter and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 12 to 20 min or until golden brown.
Keep an eye on these as your oven may vary.

I am very pleased with the way this puff pastry and breadsticks turned out.
I got 13 breadsticks for a total 11 carbs and still have half the pastry dough left.
Lastly, notice how you can see the layer in some of the dough below.

Kevin's Cheesecake, Pie & Cobbler Recipes

I was in a weird kind of a mood this morning so I put the following together.

A Berry Zucchini Pecan Crumb Pie - 8 servings @ 5.75 carbs each.

Crumb Crust

2 cups LC cake and cookie flour mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 splenda quick pack
1 1/2 sticks chilled butter (cut in small pieces)

Combine dry ingredients and then cut butter into mixture until coarse crumbs form.

Using fingers, evenly press 1/2 of the crumb mixture into a 9 inch pie plate.

Set the rest of the crumb mixture aside.

Filling

1 1/2 cups zucchini milk
1/2 cup sf Monin berry syrup
1/4 cup granular erythritol
2 T. not sugar
1 splenda quick pack

1 cup blueberries
1 small peeled and seeded zucchini (cut into apple sized pieces)

Over medium low heat in a non-stick sauce pan reduce and thicken zucchini milk, syrup, erythritol, not/Sugar, and splenda until you have approx. 1 1/4 cups of thick applesauce consistency. Let cool completely.

Combine the sauce mixture, zucchini pieces, and blueberries and turn into the crumb covered pie plate.

Top the filling with the remaining crumb mixture and bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes or until top crumb crust is golden brown.

Let cool and enjoy!

Kevin's Cheesecake, Pie & Cobbler Recipes

Years ago, one of my favorite cheesecakes was a recipe I got from a grocery store checkout isle $2.50 cookbook. I think it was put out by Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese but at this point that is only a guess since I only have a recipe card left with the recipe and a few notes written on it for Carrot 'N Raisin Cheesecake.

This is my version I made for a mixed High and Low Carb crowd Brunch I had today.(Everything I made was low carb of course)

LC Carrot 'N Cranberry Cheesecake (48 carb for entire cheesecake)

Crust

1 cup http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-crackers.html crumbs (4 or 5 crackers)
2 T diabetisweet brown
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 T butter, melted

Filling

24 ounces (3 packages) cream cheese, softened, divided
2 T diabetisweet brown
3/8 tsp splenda quick pack
1/2 cup lc cake and cookie flour mix (carbalose version), divided
4 large eggs
1/4 cup carbinated citrus water (recipe calls for OJ but this water works great as a sub for OJ)
1 cup finely shredded carrots
1/4 cup sf http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...anberries.html
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg (optional)
1/4 tsp ground ginger (optional)

Topping
1 - 2 T carbinated citrus water
3/4 cup powdered erythritol
2 T butter, softened

Preheat oven to 325.
Mix crumbs, sweeteners, cinnamon, and butter: then press onto bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.
Bake 10 minutes and set aside.

Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees.

Beat 20 ounces cream cheese, sweeteners, 1/4 cup flour mix at medium speed with electric mixer until well blended.
Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing after each addition.
Blend in citrus water.
Add combined remaining 1/4 cup flour mix, carrots, cranberries, and spices; mix well.
Pour filling evenly over crust.

Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees and continue baking for 55 minutes.
Loosen cake from rim of pan and let cool completely before removing the rim of pan.
Refrigerate several hours.

When cheesecake is completely chilled, beat the remaining 4 ounces cream cheese, butter, citrus water until well blended. Gradually add powdered erythritol, until well blended.
Spread over top of cheesecake.
Garnnish with additional cranberries and shredded carrots.

Enjoy!!
