Mixed Berry Pie

This is so amazing. I used stevia instead of sugar to safe some calories, it’s still pretty unhealthy but not too bad. And it’s pie you don’t eat it everyday, so enjoy!

What you need:

For crust:

    • 1/2 c whole grain flour
    • 3 sponge fingers
    • stevia or other sweetener to taste
    • water
      For topping:

    • 1 lb frozen berry mix
    • 3 oz butter
    • 2 oz grounded almonds (or walnuts if you prefer)
    • 1 oz sugar
    • 3 tbsp milk
    • stevia or other sweetener to taste

    I’m pretty new with stevia, it has quite a different sweetness than sugar so I usually just taste the dishes and don’t really keep track on how much I used. Sorry for that

    Crumble sponge fingers. I find that easiest to do by placing them in a small plastic bag and then beat them with something heavy, like a saucepan, until they’re almost dust thin.
    Place crumble into a bowl along with flour and stevia. Add water, while constantly stirring until the dough gets a thick mixture. Spread in a cake tin and bake for 10 min at 350 F.

    Place berries into a saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce Heat and taste with stevia.
    Place butter, sugar, almonds and milk in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy.
    Strain berries off water. You should keep the water, it does taste a bit of berries and you can color other dishes with it. You won’t need it for this recipe though.

    Remove crust from oven and spoon the berries carefully on top. Lastly carefully spread the almond, butter mix on top. It’s kinda tricky because the mixture is kinda thick while the berries are very soft, but try the best you can.
    Lastly bake for 30 – 40 min at 350 F

    This is not a pie you can eat while warm. You can of course but it will likely end up very messy so really let it cool down for a few hours. It’s kinda a summer pie anyways so I guess it’s not too bad
