Pleasantville Flavor Essences Pleasantville Flavor Essences
One of the best things about Low Carb baking — especially at holiday times — is our option to be so creative and to pick and choose the flavors we wish to create. Ever since the good folks at
Pleasantville Cookie Company starting making great flavors for their little almond-flour based cookies, we've appreciated their uniqueness.

Apparently we weren't alone. They've been getting queries about how they make those bursting with flavor cookies for some time. And now, just in time for the holidays, they've made these sumptuous
Flavor Essences available for purchase!

They're available in the following flavors:
Cookie Vanilla, Chocolate Fudge, Honey Almond, Irish Cream, Butter Pecan, Strawberry Dream, Praline Plantation, Creme De Menthe, English Toffee, Blueberry, Maple Pecan, and Marshmallow Madness.

We could hardly wait to start baking with them, and have found their flavors to remain very true and vibrant after baking. And since they contain no sugars (or any sweeteners), you can make your dishes the way you like. Use them to flavor your own low carb cookies, cakes or puddings. Use them with cream cheese, butter, and Splenda to make any frosting flavors you like! Or use them in savory dishes. The Honey Almond is great in a slightly sweetened butter sauce over chicken, and the Strawberry Dream mixes great with a tablespoon of sugarfree orange marmalade over baked ham.

Stronger and better tasting than extracts, yet less overpowering than flavored oils, these flavor essences will lend a hand with many dishes. Remember to use about half of what you would use if using regular extracts. Also keep in mind that things with a higher fat content seem to need less of the essences, and higher temperatures and longer cooking times require more flavor. So if you're making a non-cooked frosting, you'll use less than with a longer baking cake. A little experimentation will soon help you learn what levels you prefer your flavors at.

Now, order some, and get creative! You might have the most flavorful holiday goodies ever! They're available from
Pleasantville Cookie Company, and they have a special at the time of this review — Buy 2 bags of Bake Mix for only $10.98 and get a sample of your favorite Flavor Essence free! Don't ya just love a great deal? Don't want to do the baking? Buy their pre-made low carb cookies. They're terrific, Splenda sweetened, and very low carb!
