Chayote Turnover


Ingredients:

Vanilla Dream Cookie Dough

2 packet of vanilla drink mix

1/4 tsp of baking soda

1/2 tsp of baking powder

2 tsp of sugar free granular sweetener

2 egg yolks

4 tsp of grape seed oil

2 tbsp of milk or unsweetened almond milk


You will need two small bowls. Combine the dry ingredients in one, and the wet ingredients in the other.

1 tsp of cinnamon

2 servings of sweetener, granular or sugar free maple syrup


Place in a saucepan and cover with water, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and drain off water and let cool.

Once dough is chilled place it between two pieces of parchment paper, you will use a rolling pin to roll your dough nice and thin, about ½ cm thick, roll in all directions to make a nice square shape. Once your dough is rolled you may want

to place it back in the fridge leaving it between the parchment to firm up again, about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Take dough from fridge remove top parchment paper, and down the centre lay your chayote slices, you may overlap them. Sprinkle cinnamon even over the chayote, and now sprinkle the sweetener, or drizzle it on.
