Maple Pecan Pie With Splenda

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Seasoned Cook

Wonderful flavor with less calories! Crunchy, tasty pecans in a maple flavored filling. Great for a diabetic, those on a low sugar diet or for someone that just wants to watch their calories. Travels well to a potluck dinner. (I use Smuckers Sugar Free Syrup that is normally used for breakfast.)

Very good! Now I can have my favorite pie on special occasions. I experimented and used agave nectar and extra maple extract for the sugar-free maple syrup. (btw, to a previous reviewer, this doesn't say it is "sugar-free"). Made for Partying The Diabetic Way game.

Directions

  1. For pie crust: Sift four and salt in a medium size bowl. Using a fork, blend butter and shortening into flour until it is a crumbly mixture. Add only enough cold water to mix into a dough form. Place dough in refrigerator for 10 minutes. Roll pastry out and place in a pie dish that has been dusted with cornflour.
  2. For filling: Melt butter and mix with beaten eggs, Spenda Brown Sugar Blend, sugar free syrup, maple extract and cornmeal. (Cornmeal helps the consistency of the pie.) Add pecans.
  3. Pour filling into pie crust. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in a 275 degree oven. Remove and let cool. Slice when pie is completely cooled. This is not a completely sugar-free pie -- The Splenda brown sugar blend and the sugar-free maple syrup only helps to reduce the calorie count.
  4. Enjoy!
