Yet another tasty use of my versatile Mozzy Dough recipe and a great way to use up half a can of opened lite cherry pie filling. The hubs and I have been super strict, ultra low-carbing (under 20 NC a day) since the 1st of September. We decided to treat ourselves tonight with something sweet. These took a mere 35 minutes to make, start to finish. I have a 24 slot non-stick mini-muffin pan that turned out to be perfect for this amount of dough and filling. These come out to be 1.9 net carbs per piece, so an occasional indulgence like this can break the diet monotony without breaking the proverbial “carb bank”. 🙂 These are suitable for Atkins Phase 2 and beyond and most Keto diets.
1 recipe my Mozzy Dough
½ can Lite Cherry Pie Filling
VARIATION: Use other lite pie filling, like blueberry or what you make up from scratch with other fruit. Another variation would be to dot each crust with 1/2 tsp. cream cheese before adding the fruit topping. You will need to calculate numbers again if you do that.
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Make a batch of the Mozzy Dough. After kneading the ball of dough until smooth, break off 1″ balls of dough and press one ball into each of the 24 slots of mini-muffin pans. The “bowls” of dough will be quite shallow in the pan slots. Spoon just 2 cherries (with dab of filling) into each slot neatly. Pop into 350º oven and bake for around 15 minutes or until the “crust” is lightly browned around the edges. Remove, cool 1-2 minutes and lift out with knife tip onto serving plate. ENJOY!
