THM Pie Crust! -S

After such a tremendous reply to my strawberry pie, I thought I would try to figure out a way to make a pie crust for it using the THM Baking Blend!  This particular crust is an S in the THM world.

I do not have a photo of it because I forgot to take one!  So as soon as I make another pie I will be posting the picture here!

Trim Healthy Mama Pie Crust - S

1/2c butter or coconut oil, 
2 eggs, 
1/4tsp salt, 
3/4 cup baking blend, 
1-2 doonks of THM stevia.  

Preheat oven to 400. In a medium bowl beat butter, eggs, stevia, and salt together. Add Baking Blend and stir until dough holds together. Mine was more of a wet dough. Gather together into a ball. If you want it a little more pliable you could wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the fridge.  Not too much but it would've made the dough less wet and easier to press. I didn't do that and although it was smooshy to put in the pan, it still turned out great. Press into a 9" pie pan. Prick dough with a fork. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are brown and middle is done.

This crust, when it first comes out seems almost rubbery, but do not fear! It becomes almost cookie like after it totally cools!

Happy Eating!
