Sugar Free Blueberry Pie

The Sugar Free Blueberry Pie Recipe allows for indulgence in a sweet treat. Blueberries pack enough flavor that you’ll never even know that traditional sugar is missing.

level: easy   Makes one 9-inch pie, 6 to 8 slices

1 recipe Traditional Pastry Piecrust dough for a 9-inch double-crust pie
½ cup heavy cream (to glaze the top crust and crimped pie edges)

1/3 cup Splenda
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups fresh blueberries, washed, dried, and stemmed
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon salted butter

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

To prepare the pie shell, divide the ball of dough in half, setting one half to the side. On a clean, lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it forms a 10-inch circle.

Fold the circle in half, place it in the pie plate so the edges of the circle drop over the rim, and unfold the dough to completely cover the pie plate. Set the pie shell to the side while you make the filling.

To prepare the filling, in a small bowl, whisk together the Splenda, flour, and cinnamon. Place the blueberries in a large bowl and toss them gently with the Splenda mixture, making sure all of the berries are thoroughly coated.

Place the blueberry mixture in the pie shell, distributing it evenly. Sprinkle the lemon juice across the top of the blueberry filling. Dot the filling with the butter.

To prepare the top crust, roll out the second half of the dough with a rolling pin until it forms a 10-inch circle. Fold the dough circle in half and place it over the filling, with the straight line of the half circle running down the middle of the pie.

Unfold the circle so that the entire pie is covered. Using your thumb and index finger, crimp the edges of the pie together to seal in the filling, and then use a fork to puncture the top of the pie 5 or 6 times.

Brush the top of the pie and crimped edges with heavy cream to create a perfect, golden brown finish.

To bake, place the pie plate on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 375°F and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the crust is browned and the juice bubbles through.

Transfer the pie plate to a wire cooling rack and allow the pie to cool and set for 1½ hours before serving.

Sugar-Free Blueberry Pie is best served either at room temperature or warmed at 350°F for about 10 minutes. It will keep at room temperature overnight and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
