Corn Flake Cookies
(Unique gift idea!)
1 ¼ cup xylitol
2 ½ cup coconut
¼ tsp salt
1 ½ cup corn flake cereal
Place sugar and salt in a clean mason jar. Pack down tight so everything will fit in the jar. (Use a spoon or a mallet) Add other ingredients, one item at a time, packing each layer down (put cornflakes in last and don’t crunch them down!) Put the lid on the jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. You can add a personalized label, if you wish. As an added touch, tie a wooden spoon to the lid with a piece of ribbon. Print out the following instructions on a gift card and tape the card to the jar: Whip 3 egg whites until stiff. Add ½ tsp of vanilla extract. Stir in the ingredients from this jar until well combined. Drop

Take a whole pumpkin, peel and cut into chunks. Steam until soft, then strain out as much water as possible while mashing pumpkin. Add 4 cups of mashed pumpkin in a bowl with 8 eggs, 2 cans of condensed milk, 1 cup xylitol, 1 tsp. salt, approx 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice mix or spice to taste, and mix together. Take and mix in blender until thoroughly mixed. Pre bake pie plate in oven at 425 for 5 min or until pie crust just starts to rise, then take from oven and pour in pumpkin mix until level with top of pie crust. Bake at 425 for first 15 min. then turn temp. down to 360 for remainder of cooking time. (total time depends on oven and altitude, approx 45min. to 1 hr.) When you can put a knife in the pie and it comes out clean the pie is done. Making the whip cream is simple. Just take a carton of heavy whipping cream, xylitol and a little vanilla extract, mix together. You can add more xylitol and continue whipping if you want it a little sweeter. After completely whipping let stand for approx 15 min. for all the xylitol crystal to dissolve. Perfect for the holidays!
