Mother’s Day Dessert

This is such a cute sugar free, gluten free and low carbohydrate dessert recipe, and because you’re cute, too (don’t argue with me. This is my site, darn it), you deserve something fun and tiny to take the edge off of those cravings. This recipe is fine for induction, so long as you don’t eat more than a couple a day. The heavy white cream should be limited to two tablespoons per day in Atkins induction.
This recipe is also a lot of fun for Mother’s Day. Serve these to your Mother or even better, to yourself!

The shells are made from the batter used to make oopsie rolls. Whether you love these as standard buns or not, they make divine cream puffs! If you haven’t tried making oopsie rolls, the use of cupcake pans for this recipe ensures a perfect result. So what are you waiting for? Give these darling desserts a try and dish to tell me what you think.
