Diabetic PiesPosted Friday, August 14, 2009, at 8:10 AM
Being a diabetic along with my mom and partener I am always looking for new recipes so if anyone has any please share them. My mom always makes her famous pecan pies for family gatherings especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas so I have came across two diabetic versions, now we can enjoy without putting us over the limit with sugar.
Diabetic Pecan Pie
2 tablespoons butter
2 large eggs
1 cup light syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar substitute (such as Splenda)
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup pecan halves
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
1/2 tablespoon milk
Melt butter and put it to the side to cool down. Add in order, eggs, syrup, salt, sugar substitute, flour, vanilla extract and butter. Beat the mixture on slow speed until blended smoothly. Stir in pecans and make sure they are coated with mixture. Pour into pie shell. Brush crust rim with milk. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour.
Recipe No. 2
1 unbaked pie shell
1 (large) packet plain gelatin
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons strong coffee or brewed espresso (prepared, not grounds)
24 pecan halves
1/2 cup frozen apple juice concentrate (thawed)
1/2 cup granular fructose (or diabetic sugar)
Prepare pastry and place in 9-inch pie pan. In large bowl, combine fruit sweetener, gelatin and apple sauce. Beat with electric mixer. In small bowl, blend water and cornstarch until smooth. Add cornstarch to fruit sweetener mixture and blend. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla and coffee. Pour mixture into pie shell. Decorate top with pecan halves. Bake 30-40 minutes (until custard is set) at 375 degrees. Cool slightly before cutting.

I began cooking at the age of 9 with my father and have always loved trying new recipes. Beware: I am fond of onions and peppers! I am diabetic so I do try to cook more healthy dishes these days. My door is always open to trying and sharing new recipes. Let's see what we can cook up with this blog!
