Sugar Free Blueberry Pie


This sugar free blueberry pie is a tasty treat. It's not an "easy" recipe, but one worth making. Blueberry pie goes well with a dallop of whipped cream. You can also serve it with a small amount of vanilla ice cream. When purchasing blueberries from the store look for firm plump berries. Avoid berries that are leaking or show any form of mold. Summer is when blueberries are in season, so summer is usually when I will make this sugar free blueberry pie recipe.

Blueberry Pie (sugar-free)

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient:

1 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Butter; cold
3 ounces Cheese, cream; cubed
1 teaspoon Extract, vanilla

FILLING

GLAZE

Blueberries can be fresh or frozen.

Preheat oven to 425. Cut butter into flour in large bowl, using pastry blender or two knives, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Cut in cream cheese until mixture forms dough. Blend in vanilla.

(Pastry may be prepared in food processor, using steel blade.) On lightly floured surface or pastry cloth, roll out ½ dough to 11" circle. Line 9" pie plate; set aside.

Combine blueberries and cornstarch in medium bowl; toss lightly to coat. Add fruit spread and nutmeg; mix lightly. Spoon into crust.

Roll out remaining dough to 11" circle; place over fruit mixture.

Turn edges under and flute. Cut several slits or circle in top crust to allow steam to escape. If desired, cut leaves from pastry scraps to decorate top of pie. Bake

10 mintues.

Remove pie from oven; reduce temperature to 350. Combine egg yolk and sour cream; brush lightly over crust. Return pie to oven and Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
