Husband’s Delight Low Carb Dessert

LAYER 1:

1 ¼ cup almond flour

1 stick (4 oz) real butter, melted

½ cup finely chopped nuts, optional

Mix well and press into 9×9 baking dish or deep dish pie pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Crust edges should just be slightly darkening to be considered done. Let cool for about an hour.

LAYER 2:

1 cup heavy cream

8 oz full-fat cream cheese, softened

1 cup powdered Splenda or Stevia

Whip heavy cream and sweetener until stiff peaks form. Add in cream cheese and continue mixing until well combined thoroughly. Spread over cooled crust.

LAYER 3:

1 ½ cups fresh blueberries (frozen can be used, but thaw, rinse, & dry first)

Spread blueberries evenly over mixture.

LAYER 4:

1 large pkg of sugar-free Vanilla Jello

1 ½ – 2 cups heavy cream

Mix well and spread evenly over blueberries.

LAYER 5:

1 cup chopped nuts – I prefer pecans, but almonds, cashews, or walnuts will work

Sprinkle nuts over top. Chill for at least 2 hours.  Serve.
