I love pies, even more than cakes! That’s why I’ve spent the effort to put up these sugar free pie recipes.
Making them sugar free can sometimes be difficult, but it’s a lot easier with my sugar free philosophy:
“Substitute each part of a recipe you can’t eat, until you have created a safe, alternative recipe”.
This makes the process of designing sugar free pies much easier. You can find ways to make almost any recipe sugar-free if you know your substitutes well. For example, Erythritol would be a good substitute if you were making a caramel drizzle, but Stevia would not (Erythritol caramelizes, while Stevia doesn’t).
A Quick Tip About Pies VS Cakes
The difference between a pie & cake, is the leavening agent (the thing that makes cakes rise).
Pies have a crust around the outside, inside of which we put in whatever we want (from sweet treats to meaty meats). Cakes are made to rise in the oven, so that they become very fluffy and…cake-like!
Pies DO NOT have a leavening agent.
So if you’re looking for a high-risen cake, check out the sugar free cakes page, not this pies page.
