Coconut & Pecan Filling

1/2 cup of unsalted butter (one stick)

½  cup of heavy whipping cream

½ cup of almond milk unsweetened

3/4 cup of swerve

5 egg yolks slightly whisked

1 tsp vanilla

a pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut

1 cup pecans

1.     In a bowl pour the nuts and coconut. Set aside.

2.     Melt butter and sweetener in a sauce pan on medium heat.

3.     Add the heavy cream and almond milk and mix.

4.     In a separate bowl whisk your egg yolks.

5.     Slowly pour a ¼ cup of the heated cream mixture into the eggs while whisking to temper the eggs.

6.     This will allow the eggs to temper so the yolks do not scramble in the heated cream mixture.

7.     DO NOT SKIP!

8.     Once eggs are tempered pour the cream/egg mixture into the rest of the butter/cream mixture on the stove while whisking.

9.     It takes 5 minutes or more on low/medium heat to thicken the egg mixture.

15.  Place the other cake on top of the icing and remove the liner.

16.  Pour the rest of the icing on the top of the cake.
