Heart Shaped Cherry Hand Pies made with a flaky buttery crust and filled with cherry pie filling are sure to wow all pie lovers. When it comes to keto / lowcarb desserts, pie is my favorite. I like cherry, blueberry, lemon, raspberry, etc. What's nice about these hand pies is you can fill them with your favorite filling. Have fun and fill each pie with a different flavor! flavor! An assortment of hand pies would make the ultimate dessert tray for any gathering. These heart shaped hand pies are really simple to make. I make with my favorite gluten-free lowcarb pie crust, cut out heart shapes with a large cookie cutter, and then fill with sugar-free cherry pie filling (or any filling). This sweet pie crust is made with almond flour, coconut flour, butter, cream cheese, and sweetener. The dough can be sticky so I use my Gourmet Easy silicone baking mat and stainless rolling pin to make rolling out the dough easy. Make these delicious hand pies for Memorial Day, Mother's Day, Labor Day, etc. Change things up by using different shaped cookie cutters.

Blueberries in brownies? Yes, yes, yes! Adding blueberries to your brownies makes moist, decadent, super delicious brownies. Blueberries and dark chocolate hold powerful properties, as they are both antioxidants, and the strength in these two foods together is nothing but impressive. These brownies are studded with fresh blueberries and then topped with more fresh blueberries, which is where you will get the most blueberry taste. The chocolate is the dominant flavor here and when you get a bite with a blueberry it is heavenly. The best part - these are gluten-free, nut-free (no almond flour), lowcarb, keto and diabetic friendly. Made with SunFlour (sunflower seed flour), dark cocoa, blueberries, and a combination of sweeteners (monkfruit and allulose). The allulose sweetener plays important part here for the chewy texture.

If you are brownie lover, you NEED to make these!
