Keto Pecan Pralines

Keto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan Pralines.  This was a long story so if you are interested in reading all of it please see the Rum Caramel Dip Sauce because this is an extension of that recipe.  Thus far, I have not gotten to the original goal of a Sugarfree Rich Rum Sticky Buns recipe…yet. It has been pushed aside until further notice. The original Caramel Dip is zero carb so the only carbs in this are from the pecans which of course only adds more fat too.  You only see 15 pralines on the pan because I only made half a recipe and I, uh, ate one before I got it down to begin freezing.  My last line will be:  Eat keto pecan pralines for health.

Pecan Pralines
Print
Ingredients
  1. ¾ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  2. ½ C Butter
  3. ½ C Heavy Cream
  4. ¼ C Sugarfree Maple Syrup***
  5. 2 T Rum Or Brandy Rum Is Best And Liquor May Be Omitted
  6. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  7. 1½ C Small Chopped Pecans
Instructions
  1. Barely, and I mean barely, melt butter, take off heat, add heavy cream, syrup, rum (brandy) & vanilla.
  2. Begin beating in Just Like Sugar 2 T until all is incorporated.
  3. Bring to very slow simmer, stirring occasionally and cook for about 16-18 minutes. It will begin to darken and get a little thicker.
  4. The color will start out very light, get darker with cooking, and then lighten again after beating it.
  5. It may seem thin but just beat it for 3-4 minutes or so and it is ready to use. It will also thicken a little more as it sits. Remember when you were a kid and your mom made you beat fudge? Well, this is kind of like beating fudge except it does not take as long.
  6. Blend in pecans.
  7. Take about 2 teaspoons of the mix and place then on a film lined pan and when finished put in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
  8. They should easily peel off the film.
  9. Immediately put into a plastic baggie and put back in the freezer until ready to eat.

Notes
  1. Yes, they are ready to eat right out of the freezer.
  2. You could eat 3 of these puppies and still be < 1g carbs.
  3. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol with or without oligosaccharides, food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  4. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.

Low Carb Shrimp Pecan Truffles

Low Carb Shrimp Pecan TrufflesLow Carb Shrimp Pecan TrufflesLow Carb Shrimp Pecan Truffles. Clearly, the toasted pecans may look like the star of this show but all of the ingredients go so well together using the cream cheese as glue. We mostly think of truffles as some type of chocolatey confection and in my lifetime I have eaten and loved many of them but that is not the case here as these low carb shrimp pecan truffles are savory.

I doubt many of you know this but after mostly retiring from the restaurant biz in 2002-03, I began making & selling quilts, many of which can be seen here.  People told me I was nuts as you could barely give away a quilt let alone sell them but I showed them that they were so wrong. I ended up selling quilts to people all over the world let alone all over the U.S.  During the time I was teaching myself to quilt, I was also watching a program on PBS called Cooking In Quilt Country with Marsha Adams.  I don’t know if Marsha was Amish in Ohio or even if she ever made a quilt or not but man, could she cook.  The program was a marriage made in heaven for a gal like me.  And so, these low carb shrimp pecan truffles are an homage to Marsha.  The recipe is hers and as she made them.  The only thing I don’t know is how large they were so I have made them bitesize, eminently poppable, and…probably easy to overeat but, have no fear as they are so low carb it just doesn’t matter.
