Lime "Angel" Custard
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup granular sugar twin
1/4 cup granular splenda
1 grated zest of 3 limes
4 large eggs, separated
2 tbsp finely-ground almond meal
2 tbsp gluten flour
1/2 cup lime juice
1 1/2 cup whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cream the butter, sweeteners, and lime zest together. Beat in the egg
yolks, almond meal and gluten flour. Stir in the lime juice and whipping
cream. It's OK if the mixture looks curdled.
Beat the eggs to stiff peaks and fold into the lime mixture. Place a
1-quart baking dish, 8 ramekins or custard cups into a larger pan. Fill
with the custard and pour hot water into the larger pan to come halfway up
the sides of the dish(es).
Bake for 45 minutes until the top is puffed and golden brown -- but still
jiggly in the middle -- for the larger dish, 30 to 35 minutes for the
smaller dishes. Serve warm, room temperature or chilled.

Comments: This custard is like a crème brulee with a thin, soft,
meringue-like top. You can use lemon juice if you prefer or substitute
water for the juice and add 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract or a few
drops of extract of your choice, which will lower the carb count by 10
