These ARE low carb; they are NOT low calorie, so beware. They are soooo gooood tasting it’s hard to stop at just one. And no, I don’t have nutrition info on them… Just know that if you make these/eat these, your calories will be high. I had to try the recipe though, after finding it on the Carbquick website. This recipe is my modified version to use the the imitation sugars I have.
1 2/3 cup Carbquik
1 Tbls Splenda
1/2 cup low-carb milk (or 1/4 cup cream and 1/4 cup water. I used half and half)
In my food processor bowl with dough hook, combine:
Carbquick, 1 Tbls Splenda and milk until moist. Let it sit for a minute. Stir again until well combined. Let stand 5 min. Stir again until good dough texture.
Sprinkle some Carbquik on a kneading surface and turn dough onto surface. Let rest 5 minutes and then roll out to a triangle shape and dough is about 1/8″ thick.
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup brown sugar substitute
3 teaspoons cinnamon
Spread sugar mixture evenly over the rolled out dough.
Sprinkle over sugar mixture if desired:
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup nuts (Optional)
Roll the dough into a long log. Slice with sharp knife about 1.5″ and then lay on ends, sides touching, in a baking sheet lined with oiled tinfoil.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 min until golden brown.
While it’s baking, make icing.
2 oz cream cheese
2 Tblsp Butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla
Ice while hot so it melts into the rolls.
Serve warm or cold and say YUM!
