These piroulines are also known as cigarettes russes. Crispy rolled wafers with chocolate. My brother loves these. I can't wait for him to try some without trans fats.

1/2 cup vanilla whey (Jay Robb...no sugar)
3/4 cup almond flour (doesn't need to be blanched, but helps:)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
2 TBS Swerve(or a few drops stevia glycerite)
1-2 TBS vanilla almond milk OR water (just enough to hold dough together)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, almond flour, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the almond milk and sweetener to form a stiff dough. On parchment paper (lightly sprayed with olive oil spray), roll the dough out to 1/8 inch in thickness. Cut into desired lengths. Roll around a piece of parchment paper (so there will be a hole for chocolate filling. And place on cookie sheet. Bake for 7 minutes. Leave in oven to cool to crisp up.
6 TBS Swerve or erythritol, powdered
1/4 tsp stevia glycerite (if using erythritol)
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 TBS unsweetened almond milk (or heavy cream)
Place chopped chocolate, and almond milk in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, and stir until smooth. Mix in sweetener until smooth. Dip each cookie into the glaze, or drizzle over each cookie. (***For an easy option: Melt a ChocoPerfection bar with 1 TBS almond milk...that is what I did:) Makes 12 cookies.
