Sour Cream Raspberry Pie THM-S

Today, March 14th is National Pi Day!!! One way to celebrate is with a Sour Cream Raspberry Pie. For years I have had a Black Raspberry patch at the edge of my garden. They are my all time favorite berry. I do have red raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries plants but I love to walk through my black raspberry patch picking the plump juicy fruit the best. My children always hated the spring time when mom said it was time to trim raspberries. Leather gloves and long sleeves shirts were a must. Some summers my patch yielded over 130 pints but I have scaled it down to a more manageable size much to my children’s relief.

White Cake with Strawberry Cream Filling THM-S

Everyone loves to celebrate special occasions with beautiful decorated cakes. But so often those cakes are ladened with so much sugar and carbs. This cake used white navy beans as the base for the batter and is filled with Strawberry Cream Filling and frosted with Cream Cheese Frosting. It takes those special occasions to a new level. Don’t forget the Cake Batter Flavoring as it adds that a flavor that low-carb, sugar-free baked items are often lacking.

Walnut Frosties THM-S

Two English Walnut trees grace the front yard of the old home place where my parents live and my grandparents before them. These trees were planted by my grandparents who prized the nuts for baking. Memories were made picking up the walnuts with my grandmother and spreading them in the attic to dry. Over the winter months my grandfather would sit at the kitchen table shelling them.  I much prefer English walnuts over Black Walnuts which have a more bold earthy taste.  

Walnut Frosties THM-S

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine almond flour, baking mix, baking powder, and salt together. In mixer bowl, cream butter and preferred sweetener for 2 minutes. Add vanilla and egg. Mix well. Add almond flour mixture and mix for 3 minutes. Shape dough into balls and flatten to ½ in thick. Press an indentation in the center. Combine filling ingredients. Fill indentation with walnut filling, mounding slightly. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until very lightly browned.  Store in refrigerator. 30 cookies.

*English walnuts are the typical shelled walnut you will find in most grocery stores across the US. They have been cultivated to produce a large, easy to shell, mild tasting walnut. These are what most people prefer. However, there is another walnut called the California Black Walnuts that is native to the US. They have a bold, earthier flavor with very hard shells that are tough to crack and will stain your hands black. My family prefers the English walnut as the Black Walnut seems to be an acquired taste.

*cookies will be very soft when baked but will set as they cool. These are the best not over-baked.

*Brown Sugar Sweetener Substitute is a homemade sweetener mix that tastes just like brown sugar. You can use THM Gentle Sweet if you prefer.
