Sometimes I get so hungry for dessert. I don’t eat sugar at all and limit artificial sweeteners so it’s a ‘challenge’ to enjoy dessert. Usually when I’m really hungry for something sweet, I make a piece of cinnamon toast with butter, lots of cinnamon and a sprinkle of Truvia.
I love fruit and fried pies are easy to make. I decided to make 4 different fillings, apple with cinnamon, peaches and blueberries, apricot and blueberries and cherry. I squeezed a little fresh lemon in each one and added just a little water.
I cooked 2 bowls at a time in the microwave for about a minute. Just enough to soften the fruit a little and heat it. Then I added a spoon full of flour and a sprinkle of Truvia…stir stir stir.
I made up a pie crust with 2 cups of flour, dash of salt, Crisco and ice cold water. Then took a ball and rolled it out. Put the filling in the center, folded it over and crimped the edges with a fork.
I fried them in Crisco.
OH MY…HOT and DELICIOUS!
I froze most of them! I didn’t eat them ALL!
Hubby bought a different coffee bean this month and it is rich and robust. He grinds the beans for the freshest and tastiest coffee in the world.
Life is good
even when it’s ‘sugar free’!
