Low Sugar Vegan Cherry Pie

Low Sugar Cherry Pie

This was a rainy day creation.
I made a cobbler like topping
that was so yummy and made this pie
taste even more sinful!
~ pie crust( see my recipe on prvious post)
~2 cans of plain, unsweetened pitted, tart cherries in water( organic always best)
~1 1/4 cups of Stevia- a natural sugar substitute.
~1/4 cup flour
~a pinch of salt (1/4 tsp?)
~2 tsp almond extract
~4 Tbsp arrowroot or other thickener of choice.

Combine all ingredients into the pie crust.
Add cobbler top( optional- recipe listed below)
and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees!

For Cobbler topping(optional) :

~ 1 cup of water
~1.5 cups of flour
~2 teaspoons vanilla extract
~1/2 cup Earth Balance- or margarine of your choice
~ 1/4 cup Stevia

- combine all cobbler top ingredients together in a bowl
and I find the best way to mix and create the crumble effect is to just use
my hands.
When it seems well mixed- crumble on top of pie before baking!

Enjoy! Goes great with Soy Whip or Vanilla Coconut Icecream!
