Hello all!! Could someone tell me where to find a cherry pie, or cherry desert recipe. I have a can of sugar free cherry pie filling. I also checked all the recipes on this site, and can't find one. Any help with this is so appreciated!!

I don't like cherries at all, so I don't have any recipes- but maybe you could just dump it on top of a baked cheesecake?

You could make a Cherry Crisp: Mix the SF canned cherry pie filling with some cinnamon, put in a butter pan. Top with a mixture of Almond Flour, Oatmeal, Cinnamon, Splenda, and butter, bake at 350 degrees until topping is brown and crispy. Serve with Splenda sweetened whipped cream or LC vanilla ice cream.

This is one of our FAVORITE desserts. You can also find Splenda sweetened apple pie filling (Walmart even has their own store brand!), and mix it with a can of the cherries and make an Apple Cherry Crisp...we did THAT over the weekend...

Lucky Leaf makes Splenda sweetened Apple and Cherry pie filling, I've purchased them at Super Walmart. I wish they would make their Blueberry filling SF!

Also, Super Walmart has their own Great Value brand of Apple Pie Filling sweetened with Splenda. Here in my area, it is about $1.00 LESS than the Lucky Leaf brand, so, a GREAT savings! The only bummer is, they only sell Apple.

Even the sugar free pie filling has starch in it and is quite high in carbs, so use with caution.

Thank you all!! The cherry crisp sounds wonderful and I will be trying it tonight. I am doing South Beach so I can be a little more flexible with my carbs. I will let you all know how it comes out. But am I still looking for a pie recipe if anyone out there has one.

Thanks

Here's the link to Sherrie's cherry pie. It's not a a traditional crust but might be worth trying.

I just looked in my favorite places and found an almond flour pie crust!!! DUHHHH!! I will try this one too, and let everyone know. Can someone give me the carb count on this?

1 and 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 splenda
6 tablespoons butter.

Thank you so much,
Beeb

Carb Sense makes a pie crust mix that really isn't too bad. I've made pumpkin pie with it. Buy it at Walmart.

I use this Pie Crust that I got from Atkins Recipes, I use it for Chicken Pot Pie and my fruit pies. This pie crust can be tricky to roll out , but it tastes like a real pie crust.

Pie Crust
You will use this basic recipe again and again. If you aren't adept at rolling dough, simply pat the pie crust in an even layer into pie plate.

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Atkins Bake Mix
4 tablespoons butter, softened
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon soour cream
For sweet pastry crust, add 3 packets sugar substitute

1. In medium bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat bake mix, butter,cream cheese, sour cream (and sugar substitute, if using), just to combine. Shape into a disc. Chill 20 minutes.
2. Roll out dough between two pieces of wax paper to form a 12 inch circle. Loosen wax paper, replace, turn over dough; continue to roll until dough is 1/8 thick, loosening and replacing wax paper as needed. Pick up paper and invert dough into pie plate. Peel off paper; patch any tears. Crimp edges for attractive border. Prick bottom with fork. Chill 30 minutes in freezer.
3. Heat oven to 425*F. Lightly cover pie crust with aluminum foil. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375*F and bake 10-12 minutes more, until golden brown and lightly puffed.
4. This makes enough for one crust, if making for pie you while need to make two batches.

I can't thank you all for the wonderful recipes!!! I made the cherry crumble tonight and the family finished it in 5 minutes!! They loved it. I added some bake mix to the other stuff, just for a more pie crusty feel.

I will be trying the above pie crust recipe soon, and again thanks you all!

Hello, I took chefchick66's advise in an earlier post and mixed almond flour, oatmeal, bakemix (I added this myself) cinnamin, SF brown sugar, and melted butter to make a crumble topping, like something you would use for coffee cake. I eyeballed all the ingredients, using much less oatmeal and more almond flour and bake mix. used a 1/2 stick of butter melted and added a little at a time to mixed dry ingredients until crumbles formed. Buttered a pan and put SF cherry pie filling in and crumbles on top. Baked at 325 until brown and bubbly. This was the very best dessert I have ever made, so says the family, who left 0 leftovers!!! LOL

Enjoy,
Beeb

Glad you liked it! I'm not much for "measuring" things, that's why there are no measurements.

Beeb, just "eyeballing" your measurements, can you take a guess at how much of each you used?

Where did you buy your SF cherry pie filling? I can't seem to find the Lucky Leaf cherry anywhere any more. Can find the apple but not the cherry. I hope they haven't stopped making it.

Linda,

I wish I could answer your question with the proper measurements, but I will try to guess for you. Maybe 1/4 cup of of the oats and 1/2 cup each of almond flour and bake mix? The spices to taste and the 1/2 cup of butter as needed. I'm sorry can't be more detailed. Just make sure it is crumbly.

Good Luck,
Beeb

PS This will work good with the SF apple pie filling to, I'm sure.
