Lynne's Chocolate Dipping Sauce

Recipe By :Lynne Axiak
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Candies

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
2 tablespoons cocoa butter
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Splenda® granular -- to taste

GENTLY melt chocolate and butter, remove from heat, stir in cream and
vanilla and sweetener, fold in crushed nuts. Dip fresh washed and dried
strawberries or lowcarb walnut cookies or whatever you choose to dip.
Place on waxed paper and chill until hardened.

if your chocolate is separating, try warming the cream to room
temperature by nuking for 2-3 seconds or leaving out for an hour before
making the chocolate. Some people say they never have this problem if
they use already premelted chocolate (ie: nestles) or by using the
microwave to melt the chocolate.

Cocoa butter: can usually be found in the lotion aisle of the a health
food store. Make sure you buy 100% pure cocoa butter.

Rhubarb-Strawberry Pie

Recipe By :Tracey Seaman
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Desserts Pies

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 prebaked Atkins Pie Crust -- (see recipe)
4 rhubarb stalks - (1 1/4 lbs) -- finely diced
1/2 cup water
4 packets sugar substitute
1 pint strawberries -- hulled, quartered
1 tablespoon ThickenThin Not/Starch thickener -- plus
2 teaspoons ThickenThin Not/Starch thickener
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, combine rhubarb, water and sugar substitute.
Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer 10 minutes, until rhubarb
is falling apart.

Stir in berries, thickener, lemon juice and salt. Stir over low heat
until thickened, about 3 minutes. Adjust sweetness by adding more
sugar substitute, if necessary. Let cool, stirring occasionally.

Pour filling into prepared pie shell. Chill until set, about 2 hours.
(Allow enough time for the pie to set up, at least 2 hours. Otherwise
it will be too soft to cut into slices.)

Before serving whip the cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form.
Pipe or spoon over the pie in a decorative fashion.

This recipe yields 8 servings.

Carbohydrates: 10.5 grams
Net Carbs: 6.5 grams

Calories: 274

The challenge: Creating a fruit pie that is relatively low in
carbohydrates. The solution: We used rhubarb, a relatively low-carb
vegetable that cooks and tastes like fruit. Rhubarb is often paired
with strawberries in a traditional springtime pie. But with frozen
rhubarb and the year-round availability of strawberries, this pie can
be enjoyed anytime. Blueberries or raspberries may also be substituted
for strawberries for variety. ThickenThin gives the pie consistency,
and is the carboydrate controlled alternative to cornstarch. We've
kept this version on the tart side, but if you prefer sweeter desserts,
add an extra packet or two of sugar substitute. This pie is delicious
topped with whipped cream sweetened with sugar substitute or Atkins
Sugar Free Strawberry syrup.

Rum Custard Sauce

Recipe By :n/a
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Accompaniment Desserts
Sauces

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/3 cup whole milk
1/2 tablespoon real sugar
1 tablespoon Splenda
1/2 heavy cream -- whipped with
Artificial sweetener -- to taste
2 tablespoons dark rum
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 piece vanilla bean - (1" long)
2 egg yolks

Heat milk and cream with vanilla bean to just below a boil in top of a
double boiler. Discard vanilla bean.

Beat egg yolks, Splenda, and sugar until light and lemon colored.
Gradually stir in whole milk and cream mixture. Strain mixture back
into double boiler and heat over simmering water. Stir with a wooden
spoon until custard thickens and coats the spoon.

Immediately set pan into cold water to stop cooking. At serving time,
stir the rum into custard and fold in whipped cream.

This recipe yields 2 cups; 1/2 carb gram per tablespoon.

Comments: For use on blueberries, sliced peaches, or strawberries.

Note: You can use artificial rum flavor (sold with extracts) to reduce
carbs and eliminate alcohol, but it's pretty negligible anyway and the
real stuff makes it pretty good.
