Low Carb Keto Millionaire's Shortbread

"If you're blue and you don't know where to go to.  Why don't you go where fashion sits?  Puttin' on the Ritz."

I spent the morning making Millionaire's Shortbread, so obviously, I have Taco's "Puttin' on the Ritz" stuck in my head.

This affable Dutch singer was a one hit wonder, but boy did he milk that one hit.

The video below is an appearance he did in 1983.  He lip synchs along as millionaire dancers make jazz hands behind him.  It's pretty impressive, in a synth pop kind of way.

But let's talk about that Millionaire's Shortbread that I mentioned.

I only learned about this dessert recently.  It's a layered bar with a shortbread crust, caramel middle and chocolate topping.  For this low carb version, I decided to go with an almond and coconut shortbread crust, a caramel cheesecake filling and sugar-free chocolate ganache on top.  The whole shebang clocks in at only 4g net carbs per bar.  

So it's just perfect for when you want to go where fashion sits... puttin' on the Ritz.

Low Carb Keto Millionaire’s Shortbread

prep time: 15 minscook time: 1 hour and 30 minstotal time: 1 hours and 45 mins

This is a low carb take on Millionaire’s Shortbread, a very classy dessert. It’s got a shortbread crust, caramel cheesecake center and chocolate topping.

ingredients:

Shortbread Crust:

2 cups super fine almond flour

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/3 cup Isopure whey protein or equivalent sugar-free whey protein powder

1/3 cup Powdered Swerve or equivalent powdered sweetener

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted


Caramel Cheesecake Filling

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons Powdered Swerve or equivalent powdered sweetener

2 large eggs

16 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup Powdered Swerve or equivalent powdered sweetener

2 tablespoons Torani Salted Caramel Sugar-Free Syrup or equivalent 


Chocolate Ganache Topping

1 cup (6 oz) Lilly’s Sugar-Free chocolate chips or equivalent

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons Powdered Swerve or equivalent powdered sweetener

instructions:

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper.  Make sure to leave room on the edges so you can lift the shortbread up once it’s done.

2.  Mix all dry crust ingredients together in in medium sized bowl.  Add 1 stick melted butter and mix well to combine.  If it’s too dry to form a crust then add 2 more tablespoons melted butter. 

3.  Add crust dough to pan and press the crumbs evenly with your hands.

Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven, but keep the heat on.

4.  In a medium sized sauce pan, heat 1/4 cup butter over medium low heat until browned.  Add cream and 2 tablespoons powdered sweetener and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and set aside.

5.  In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to whip cream cheese until it is light and fluffy.  Slowly add eggs and whip until smooth.  Add 1/2 cup powdered sweetener and caramel flavored syrup and mix until combined.  

6.  Check on your cooked caramel sauce and if it has separated, just quickly mix it back together.  Slowly add to the cream cheese mixture while whipping.

7.  Pour cream cheese filling on top of the shortbread crust and cook for 1 hour until browned and solid in the middle. 

8.  Allow to cool for 1 hour on the counter and then chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

9.  The cheesecake will be sunken in the middle.  Take a knife and cut around the outer edges to level the cake.

10.  Add cream and 2 tablespoons powdered sweetener to a medium sized sauce pan.  Bring cream just to a boil over medium-high heat. Add chocolate chips and let stand for 10 minutes. Whisk together.

11.  Spread chocolate over the top of the cheesecake layer.  Return to the refrigerator and chill for 3 hours before cutting.
