Keto Peach Cobbler

This recipe is from a Keto Cookbook I own. I’ve changed a few things on the recipe. I am posting the changed recipe below. The original recipe said to cover with foil so the dough doesn’t burn. I am changing that to bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the dough is golden brown and then cover with foil. Also, I add more cinnamon than the original recipe called for. Lastly, I think vanilla extract needs to be added. I’m adding 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the recipe.

Great-Grandma Peavy’s Pecan Pie

I will post the recipe below. This recipe makes 2 pies. To convert this to a sugar-free pie, use a brown sugar substitute like Swerve or Splenda. There are many brands of brown sugar substitute these days. All the other ingredients stay the same. Some sugar substitutes are sweeter than others so you may have to experiment with what tastes best to you. I used Swerve and my parents loved the pie. They did say it was a little sweet but they just had smaller slices. The whole pie was gone quickly though.

#MysteryIngredientChallenge – Southern Sweet Potato Pie

I am part of the Mystery Ingredient Challenge on YouTube hosted by Justina’s Country Kitchen and Catalina Treats Gluten Free Kitchen. Go over and check out their wonderful channels. I had to create a recipe with “sweet potatoes, applesauce, and Cheetos.” This is what I came up with. If you take away the applesauce and Cheetos, this is an old family recipe for Southern Sweet Potato pie. The pie actually turned out great and tasted Drool-Worthy. It did not have a Cheeto taste to it.

Ingredients
1 pie crust and I’m using Pillsbury
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon vinegar (or lemon juice)
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup crunchy cheetoes
2 handfulls of mini marshmallows

Directions
Roast 2 large sweet potatoes on 425 degrees for 45 minutes. (When Sweet Potatoes roast the sugars in them caramelize making it more flavorful. You don’t get that with boiling them).
Remove from oven and lower oven temp to 350 degrees.
Place the Cheetos in a Ziploc bag. With a rolling pin crush them.
Roll out the pie crust.
Place the crushed Cheetos on top of pie crust & roll into the pie crust.
Place crust in a greased pie plate. Press the crust into pie plate to shape.
Line crust with parchment paper and then weigh down with pie weights or dried beans to keep the crust from puffing. Bake for 15 minutes on 350 degrees.
Remove pie crust and let cool.
Peel sweet potatoes and place in mixing bowl.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Add cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Cook for about 3 minutes. It will be brown and smell like fall spices.
Pour butter mixture over potatoes and mix.
Add eggs, sweetened condensed milk, applesauce, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, & salt until everything is combined.
Remove pie weights from pie crust.
Pour sweet potato mixture into crust.
Bake on 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until pie is set.
Remove from oven and while hot top with mini-marshmallows.
Place back in oven until marshmallows are toasted.
Remove from oven again and enjoy!

Vintage Recipe – Coconut Cream Pie

Ingredients
Baked Pie Crust – (I skipped the homemade pie crust and went with Pillsbury Pie Crust)
¾ cup sugar
½ cup flour
¼ tsp salt
2 eggs
3 cups scaled milk – (I used half milk, half cream)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup shredded coconut

Topping Ingredients
2 cups of heavy whipping cream
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract


Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the sugar, flour, salt, and eggs.
Slowly add the scalded milk, stirring constantly.
Over med-low heat stir until it thickens. This will take about 20-25 minutes.
I stir constantly for about a minute and then rest a couple minutes and go back and stir again.
The reason it says to constantly stir, is so it doesn’t get lumpy, but you really don’t have to worry about lumps until it starts to thicken.
Once it starts to thicken, stir it constantly. It should get thick like pudding.
You want to make sure it is thick enough because it is not going to get any thicker in the fridge.
Once ready remove from the heat and add in the vanilla extract.
Fold ¾ cup of coconut into pie. (I toast mine, but you don’t have to. I think it gives it a better flavor).
Pour the custard in the pie crust and bake on 350 for 15 – 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool completely.


Topping Directions
Mix all ingredient together until soft peaks form.
Once pie is cool, top the pie.
Sprinkle with remaining coconut.
Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
Enjoy
