Equipment

  • 9'' deep dish pie pan

Ingredients
  

For The Pie Filling

  • 4 cups fresh cherries
  • 1 cup granulated monk fruit sugar 
  • 1/3 cup Cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 large egg white

For The Pie Crust 

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 5 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp xanthum gum
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter cold
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese cold
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar 

Instructions
 

  • First remove the pits and cherry stems  from the fresh cherries
  • Then combine them in a large mixing bowl with monk fruit sugar, cornstarch, and orange juice, use a fork to whisk and set aside
  • Start making the crust by combining almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, salt and vanilla to food processor and pulse until thoroughly combined 
  • Next add in the butter and cream cheese and blend for a few seconds until flaky 
  • Then add the egg and vinegar and blend until the dough starts to bind together but don’t over blend
  • Turn out the dough onto plastic wrap and pat into a round. 
  • Set in the refrigerator for minimum 1 hour 
  • Roll out the crust between parchment paper then mold into your 9'' deep dish pie pan- set in the freezer for about 10 minutes for shaping purposes
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  • Scoop the cherry filling into the pie crust 
  • Use the excess dough to cut the crust into long strips, about 1/2'' wide. Lay strips over the crust in a lattice pattern. (Use a pizza cutter, knife or pastry wheel)
  • Bake the pie for 40 minutes 
  • At the 20 minute mark lay a foil sheet over the pie to prevent over burning 
  • Allow the pie to thoroughly chill before serving
