Croissant Dough - Professional version (Chef Greg)

Ok now I am going to present a challange to everyone that is up for it. I have a professional version of this request. I have come to the conclusion there are some very bright folks that use this service. I am posting the full professional version. Now your task is............... BREAK IT DOWN TO YOUR OWN SIZE AND QUANITY..

Now you ask, why is that crazy Chef doing this to us?, I am sure someone will also answer that question. It is time for the fun to begin, here you go:


CROISSANT DOUGH
MILK - cold 48 oz.
YEAST 7 oz.
CARBQUIK 5#
SALT 2.25 oz.
SUGAR 6 oz.
BUTTER - softened 8 oz.
BUTTER 3#
CARBQUIK 3 oz.
Yields: 120 Croissants weighing 1.75 oz. each.

METHOD:
1. DOUG: Mix the first 6 ingredients together - "Straight Dough Mixing Method". Mix on low speed for “5 minutes" until a smooth loose dough is formed - do not overwork the dough! Allow to rise for 30 minutes. Then pin-out the dough out into the size of a sheet-pan. Then place the dough onto a parchment lined and lightly Carbquiked sheet-pan, and ****** for 30 minutes.
2. BUTTER BLOCK (beurrage): Combine the remaining butter and Carbquik, and knead until pliable and lump free. Spread evenly over 2/3 of a parchment lined sheet-pan. Place in the refrigerate for 10 minutes.
3. When the butter and dough have reached the same consistency, place the dough on your work table, brush-off any excess Carbquik, and cover 1/2 of the dough evenly with the butter.
4. Fold the other half of the dough over to cover the butter, seal the edges well. You have completed the LOCK-IN. Turn 90 degrees.
5. Roll out to 3x the width of a sheet-pan, and as long. Complete the 1 3-FOLD. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
6. Complete the 2 3-FOLD, refrigerate 30 minutes, and the final 3 3-FOLD (total of 81 layers). Wrap tightly and refrigerate. Use the 2nd day.
GUIDELINES:
1. Pan 20 croissants per sheet pan. Reverse the last row of croissants to prevent the tips from over-browning!
2. French egg wash (equal parts yolks and cream) - before and after proofing.
3. Proof until doubled in size. When the sheet-pan is shaken, the croissants should jiggle.
4. Bake @ 425 F.

ChefGreg helped me with my favorite quickbread recipe:

Carbquik Cinnamon Swirl Loaf
Servings: 12

The Cinnamon Swirl
1/3 cup Splenda
1/8 cup Brown sugar twin
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
The Batter
1 1/2 cups Carbquik
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) softened
3/4 cup Splenda
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
To make the cinnamon swirl combine the Splenda and cinnamon in a small cup and set aside.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan and set aside.
2. To make the cinnamon swirl combine the Splenda and cinnamon in a small cup and set aside.
3. To make the batter mix together the Carbquik, baking powder, baking soda, and salt onto a sheet of waxed paper and set aside. (You can use a small bowl for this instead)
4. In a large bowl cream the butter until light with an electric mixer on high speed. Gradually add the Splenda and continue beating until the mixture is very light and fluffy. Change the mixer speed to medium. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, then beat in the vanilla.
5. Change the mixer speed to low. Alternately beat in the mixed dry ingredients and the sour cream, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients and beating only until combined.
6. Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon mixture over the top. Repeat with the remaining batter and cinnamon mixture. Drizzle the melted butter over the top. To make the swirl, cut through the batter with a knife several times.
7. Bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let the loaf stand in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Loosen from the sides of the pan, then carefully invert onto the rack and turn right-side-up. Cool completely before serving.

Per Serving : 190 Calories; 17g Fat ; 5g Protein; 11g Carbohydrate; 6g Dietary Fiber; net carbs 5g.

Success! Chefgreg and I have been playing around with the Dump Cake recipe for a couple of days and I took his suggestions and modified them a little more to make this Pumpkin Crisp. I'm not sure how you came up with your carb count Greg, with granola, oats and evaporated milk, it seems that it would be higher. I'd like to see your count breakdown for the recipe if it's not too much trouble. Anyway, here's what I came up with:

Pumpkin Dump Cake

1 lg. can of pumpkin -28 (****** says more, but I'm going by my can of Libby's pumkin puree)
3 eggs- 2
3/4 cup Splenda- 18
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1 1/2 cup Carb Countdown milk- 4.5

2 cups Carbquik- 24
1 cup chopped pecans- 4
1/2 cup almond flour - 6 (Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup brown sugar twin- 0

1 1/2 sticks melted salted butter -0

Mix the first 7 ingredients and pour into a sprayed 9 X 13 pan. Mix the next 4 ingredients and sprinkle all over the pumpkin mixture. Drizzle the melted butter all over the Carbquik mixture and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Servings: 10
Net Carbs total: 86.5
Net Carbs per Serving: 8.65

This is very tasty! It doesn't taste lowcarb and my family loved it.

Chocolate-Cherry Crisp (lgpars)

Prep: 10 Min.
Bake: 35 Min.

9 or 10 Servings

1 can (21 oz.) SF cherry pie filling (Splenda sweetened Lucky Leaf Brand)
1/2 cup Carbquik mix
1/2 cup Maltitol brown
1/2 cup whole oats
1/4 cup firm butter
1/2 cup SF chocolate chips or SF chocolate bars

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread pie filling in ungreased square pan, 8 x 8 x 2 inches.

2. Stir together Carbquik mix, Maltitol brown, and oats in medium bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until crumbly. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon evenly over pie filling.

3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until very bubbly around edges and light brown. Serve warm.

I just poured heavy cream over mine but you could use LC ice cream too. This was really yummy!

I would imagine you could also use the Lucky Leaf SF apple pie filling in this too and maybe leave out the chocolate chips and add nuts. I think I would add just a bit more sweetner though if you use the apples as they do not seem to be as sweet as the cherry filling

Flaxmeal/Carbquick Muffins (smurstep)

Yesterday, I made the SpongeBob Flax muffins and substituted one of the two cups of flax with one cup of CQ. They turned out great. My husband and kids love them. I even had to hide a few of them just to have for some for me.

Anyways, I really don't like the slippery feel of the flax but the CQ took care of that quite well. They rised nicely and crowned and browned like regular muffins. Only thing is that I have no idea how many calories and carbs are actually in each muffins and I am trying to watch my caloric intake. Would some sweet person please figure this out for me? Here are the ingredients I used:

Here are the ingredients I used - I made 12 large muffins.

1C Flaxmeal (golden)
1C Carbquick
1/2 Black Walnuts
1/2 Pecans
1/4 C Splenda (granulated)
1/4 C Erythritol
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
5 Eggs
8 T DaVinci (French Vanilla)
5 T oil (MacNut)
1/2 C Cranberries (fresh, chopped)
4.5 oz Blueberries
1 tsp lemon rind (fresh)
1 pinch salt
1T Real Vanilla
2T Lemon Oil

I would love to use Carbquick in this recipe. Just need help figuring out what ingre. it would take to sub for the self rising flour & how much.

Here goes:

TIP: place a shallow pan of water underneath the skillet when cooking AND use CAST IRON!!!

AUNT RUTH'S PECAN CAKE

2 sticks butter (melted IN the iron skillet and swirled around )

In bowl mix:

1 1/2 Cups Carbquik + 1 tablesppon
1 tablespoon double acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups Splenda
3-4 cups pecans (broken up into pieces)
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
4 lg. eggs

Add butter to dry ingredients. Mix & pour into cast iron skillet. (LARGE ONE) This a VERY THICK DOUGH. Bake at 325 degrees approx. 1 hour & 15 minutes (more or less depending on your oven). Don't forget to place a shallow pan of water on the lower rack). Cool and slice into pie shaped wedges. I run a dinner knife around the edges real good to help release it. ALSO: I sometimes spray PAM in my skillet before swirling the butter.

This is the heaviest cake I have ever made and boy is it good. I just make sure I do not OVERCOOK it. Comes out like I said in the earlier post...crunchy, crusty on the outer edges and if you don't overcook it....chewy, gooey on the inside. NO FROSTING NEEDED. Freezes very well also.

edited to add: I turn the cake out onto a plate like a "pone" of cornbread.

Carbquik Cream Cheese Cookies

Carbquik Cream Cheese Cookies


2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature
(or use salted butter and cut down on the salt below)
4 ounces of cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup Sugar Sub..Splenda..whatever
2 eggs yolks, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups Carbquik
3/4 tsp. salt (unless salted butter is used)
Sugar free jam..(raspberry, apricot, strawberry)
OR a pecan half

Preheat oven to 300 degrees

Place the butter, cream cheese, and sweetener into a bowl and mix until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add
the yolks and vanilla, and mix to combine. Then add the Carbquik
and the salt and mix well until everything is incorporated.

To form cookies, use a regular teaspoon and then roll into balls
with your hands and place on an ungreased cookie sheet or
on parchment paper. Then flatten each ball with your fingers until
a little disk is formed..About 1/2 inch..Then on top of each disk
make a little dent with your finger and fill with the sugarfree jam..
Not too much..OR you can put a pecan half in that little dent.
Bake for about 12-16 minutes, watching carefully..The bottoms will
turn slightly brown, but the tops won't...Remove from the oven
and let sit in the pan to cool for about 10 minutes..CAREFULLY
remove them from the pan onto a wirerack to cool..They are very
tender, so they will be firmer the cooler they are.

I think you will enjoy these..

1. Heat oven to 450ºF. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or lightly grease with shortening.
2. Stir Bisquick mix, butter and splenda in medium bowl until crumbly. Stir in cream until dough forms; beat 15 strokes. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto cookie sheet. Make a shallow well in center of each with back of spoon dipped in water; fill each with 1 teaspoon preserves.

Sorry it took so long to get the wonton skins for you, I had to play with this a while. But I have here what worked for me. This also doubles as a pasta recipe. This is a little vragile to work with at first, but after drying it becomes very easy. Here we break traditon with Carbquik, you need to sift the Carbquik for this recipe. The solids will disrupt the dough. [Chefgreg]

1 1/2 cups sifted carbquik
3 egg yolks
2 whole eggs
1 teaspoon corn starch.

In a food processor place the sifted Carbquik and corn starch. Add the egg yolks and whole eggs. Pulse food processor to mix the dough. Continue to pulse until the dough forms a ball around the blade.

Divide the dough into 4 balls and begin rolling the dough in all directions until the dough is very thin. Let this sit and dry about 30 minutes. Cut the dough into wonton size skins, or at his point you can also cut this into pasta noodles or sheets. Let the cut dough dry over night. Use as required.

SECOND POINT OF INTEREST; I WAS INFORMED TODAY THAT TOVA HAS MADE SOME SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS TO CARBQUIK, FURTHER REDUCING THE NET CARBS. I WILL LET TOVAREP PROVIDE THE DETAILS, BUT IT IS VERY EXCITING.

Puffy Dumpling Noodles

3/4 cup sifted Carbquik
1 tsp. cornstarch
3 Tbs. vital wheat gluten
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk

Extra Carbquik and vital wheat gluten for kneading purposes.

In a small bowl, sift in Carbquik, cornstarch and the wheat gluten.
Add egg and yolk and stir until a dough is formed..not gently..

Then on a countertop sprinkled with Carbquik and a little wheat
gluten, start kneading your dough..folding it over..UNTIL it is
dryish..(not wet)..Knead for about 5 minutes or so. You want
your dough to be elastic..When you pull it apart..it comes together
a little..When that happens, then you are ready to roll and cut.

Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it is about the thickness
of pie dough..Then cut in strips with a knife or pizza cutter. You will probably want to cut them in 3rds or at least half lengthwise.

Drop into boiling broth...They cook up in about 2-3 minutes and
STAY TOGETHER and are delicious...Don't let them cook too long
as I can't guarantee what would happen...

These would make great noodles for chicken and noodles..added
at the very end...

Good luck...Carolyn

Pumpkin Cranberry Scones (Carbquick)
I adapted an older pumpkin scone recipe I had to this LC version. I received my first box of CQ in the mail today and tried these first. They turned out excellent, very moist. Not a sweet dessert type scone, but excellent with a dollop of whipped cream and a hot mug of coffee.

Pumpkin Cranberry Scones

2 cups Carbquick
1 Tbs butter
2 packets of Splenda (or more if you would like them sweeter, original recipe called for 1 Tbs sugar)
3/4 cup canned pumpkin, cold
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbs heavy cream
1/2 cup fresh cranberries, halved

Heat oven to 425. Cut butter into Carbquick, add the Splenda, pumpkin, egg, and cream. Incorporate the ingredients well, but do not over mix. Gently fold in cranberries. Shape dough into 10 balls, place on a buttered cookie sheet, and press down gently, smoothing the outer edges. Brush tops with additional heavy cream if desired.
Bake on middle rack for 10-15 minutes.

Serve warm with butter and/or whipped cream.

Yield: 10 scones
4 net carbs each
10 fiber

I just wanted to let everyone know I tried the Impossible Apple Pie using Chayote squash.... it's wonderful!!!

I haven't been able to find the Alpine SF Cider mix (yet) so I just peeled and sliced the Chayote, placed in an electric skillet with a little water (next time I'll just cook on the stove with more water), sprinkled liberally with apple pie spice and about 15 drops SweetzFr**. I simmered until the Chayote was tender, allowed to sit for about an hour, then proceeded with recipe. My streusel wasn't crumbly (next time I'll be sure the butter is colder) so I "plopped" small bits of it all over the top, it took about 1 hour to cook completely.

This is the first time I've used the Chayote, I'll definitely be using it again. One thing I noticed is you have to clean out the seed area well, once cooked there is a fibrous area that doesn't cook well.

Fritters/Donut Holes [Cap57]

This recipe was first posted last year by Raul, and makes excellent fritters or doughnut holes. I just tried it again, subbing Carbquik for the bake mix, and they were excellent! I even tried a chocolate variation, as well as add chopped apple to one to make an apple fritter. The possibilities are endless! There is a separate thread, entitled "If you love fritters or doughnuts..." but here is the basic recipe. I did need to use 4 Tab. of Carbquik, but only 3 Tab. when I used the Carbsense.
My tweaks are in parentheses.

Dry Ingredients:
3 Tab. Carbsense Zero Carb Bake Mix (or 4 Tab. Carbquik)
1 Packet Splenda (I used 8 drops liquid Splenda)
1/8 Teaspoon Stevia (I omitted, because I was using Davinci's)
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
(I also added a pinch of nutmeg, because my Grandma always used nutmeg in her homemade doughnuts).

Wet Ingredients:
1 Large Egg White, beaten
3 Tablespoons water (I sub Davinci's. So far I've tried French Vanilla and Irish Cream. Both are delicious!)

1. Beat egg white until frothy with 1 Packet Splenda & 3 Tablespoons water. (I first beat the egg white alone till frothy, but not stiff, then added the Davinci's and liquid Splenda and beat some more. You don't want it as thick as meringue, but it should have some body to it to help your dough-nots have a nice puffy shape.)
2. Add dry ingredients and combine well.
3. Fry batter in your oil of choice until crispy & golden brown. (I put about an inch of oil in a small sauce pan.)
4. Sprinkle with 1 more packet of Splenda (I mixed some granular Splenda with a little cinnamon to sprinkle over).
The recipe makes about 8-10 doughnut hole sized treats. They really puff up as they cook. I ate them all, but I think the carb count is no more than 2 or 3 for the whole batch.
Variations: Apple Fritter: Add finely chopped apple pieces.
Chocolate Sugared Doughnut: Add 2 tsp. cocoa, and the 1/8tsp Stevia.
Use different flavored extracts and/or Davinci's; chocolate with coconut would be good!
If anyone comes up with new variations, please post!
And a huge THANK YOU TO RAUL, who originated this recipe!

I just made the Impossible Pumpkin Pie tonight, using this recipe [rgoodwin]

============
INGREDIENTS:

* 3/4 cup white sugar
* 1/2 cup biscuit baking mix
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
* 2 eggs
* 1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin puree
* 2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine sugar and baking mix. Stir in butter, milk and eggs. Then beat in pumpkin, spice and vanilla to mixture until smooth. Pour into pie pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Refrigerate any remaining pie. High altitude directions: Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 45 to 50 minutes.

========

I did a 1:1 sub for Splenda/CQ. It came out pretty well, but didn't make a crust. I guess the CQ just baked up inside of it somewhere ;-) Anyone know what might have happened? I think I had it mixed well enough, but still saw little bits of CQ in the mix when I poured it into the metal pie pan.

Cannoli Pastries [Beeb, Mastercook per LcRedhead]

Recipe By : beeb
Serving Size : 18 Preparation Time :0:00
Categorie :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Shell:
1 3/4 cup carbquickLC
2 Tbs splenda
2 Tbs butter -- cold
1 whole egg
6 Tbs marsala wine -- (1 carb)
Cannolli Stuffing:
2 pounds ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups splenda
2 teaspoons cinnamon

1. Mix carbquik, sugar sub and lemon peel in medium bowl;(I don't like the citrus taste so I omit) cut in butter with 2 knives or pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir with fork to form a ball. Divide dough in half; shape into two 1 inch thick square pieces. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

2. Heat 1 and 1/2 inches of oil in large saucepan to 325F. Working with 1 piece of dough at a time, roll out on lightly floured surface to 1/16 inch thickness, (like a egg roll wrapper). Cut dough into 9 to 10 circles using glass or cut out.

3. Wrap each circle around a greased metal cannolli form or uncooked cannelloni pasta shell. Brush one edge of rectangle lightly with water; overlap with the other edge and press firmly to seal.

4. Fry, 2 or 3 cannolli pastry shells at a time, 1 to 1 and 1/2 minutes until light brown, turning once. Remove with tongs; drain on paper towels.

5. Cool until easy to handle. Carefully remove fried pastries from cannolli forms or pasta shells, (cheater than the cannolli forms and you can break the pasta to remove more easily). Cool completely. Repeat with remaining piece of dough.

Makes 18 to 20 pastry shells

Cannolli Stuffing:

1. Beat cheese in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add sugar sub and cinnamon; beat at high speed 3 minutes. Add orange and lemon (if using) to cheese mixture; mix will. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

2. Well ready to serve, spoon cheese filling into pastry bag fitted with a large plain tip, or use a zip lock bag and cut corner to form a hole. Pipe about 1/4 cup filling into each pastry shell. (do not fill shell ahead of time, they will become soggy)

3. Dip ends of pastries into chocolate chips. At this point you may want to powder some splenda to put on top of pastries, but this is not needed.

I have halved this recipe without a problem.

Carbquik Pumpkin Pound Cake [Criosa]
I used CarolynF's version of Dottie's Pumpkin Pound Cake as a guideline, and came up with an excellent treat! It is so good - I would serve it to anyone! I love the taste of the Carbquik with almond flour. Here's what I did.

2 c. almond flour
2 c. Carbquik
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 c. erythritol
1 c. splenda
2 tsp. Soolite stevia powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
6 eggs
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. oil (I mixed butter and coconut oil)

Combine the dry ingredients. Beat the eggs until frothy. Add remaining wet ingredients, combine with the dry. Pour into a greased bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 50 minutes.

My bundt pan is a little small, so I put a little batter in a small casserole dish. My husband and I ate that this morning.

Low Carb Sausage Balls [TigerSmoke]
Ok, these are GREAT!! I can't believe they are low carb!

1.5 cups Carbquick
1/2 lb bulk sausage
2 cups (8oz) cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/8 cup water
1/8 cup heavy cream
dash of itallian seasoning

Heat oven to 350 grease large jelly roll pan. Stir all ingredients by hand in a bowl. It will seem very dry at first, keep working it and it will get moist. Roll into around 30 large balls. Bake. I'd start checking for them to get brown around 15 minutes. I've found that carbquick bakes faster than bisquick.
