How to cut carbs in Holiday Pies


Desserts are always a problem for those watching carbs, but especially for persons dealing with Diabetes.

Because of the piecrust, even sugar-free pies can be  high carb desserts.

Here's an easy, tasty no-carb pie crust suggestion...and it's Gluten-free as well.

1 to 1 1/2 cups pecan pieces (or almonds or walnuts)
1 Tablespoon Joe and Son's Butter Olive Oil ( add a little more if the mixture appears too dry to press)
1 pkg Sweet n Low or other sweetener

Place the nut pieces in a food processor and process into fine mealy sized pieces. Place in a small bowl and add the butter oil and sweetener.  Stir and combine until the nut pieces are coated.  Press into a pie plate that has been lightly sprayed with cooking oil.  Bake at 350 degrees for 6-7 minutes or until the crust begins to turn golden.

Remove from the oven and cool slightly before proceeding with your pie recipe.
