Strawberry Pie - sugar free


sugar free strawberry pie at For what it's worth
A wonderful pie that is diabetic friendly and beautiful!  There is some sugar in the vanilla pudding, so check the lable for content if you count carbs.   Of course, if you aren't concerned about the sugar, use a sugar jello instead of the sugar free version. I originally got this recipe from a work buddy about 10-15 years ago.  Thanks Bonnie. We've enjoyed this pie many,  many times!

Start with a pre baked pie crust. (Sometimes I cheat, don't care about a little sugar and use a purchased crust)
  • 3/4 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons of buttery flavored Crisco (or lard)
  • 1/4 Cup boiling water
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 packets of Sweet n Low (not Equal)

Mix ingredients  thoroughly with a fork or mixer.  Add 2 1/4 Cups flour gradually while continuing to mix at low speed until all is incorporated.  Dough should easily form into a firm moist, but not sticky, ball.  Divide into 2 balls.  Roll out one ball on wax paper to fit pie pan. Crust is fragile, make repairs as needed pressing torn edges together in pie pan. Bake 400 F. 10 minutes.

Sugar Free Strawberry Pie Filling

You know, with a few blue berries sprinkled on top, this would look like an American holiday.
