Ingredients

PASTRY

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons erythritol

FILLING

  • 2 cups cherries, fresh pitted
  • 3 tablespoons erythritol
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

FILLING

  • Place the cherries, erythritol, xanthan gum and water into a small saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Stir well to ensure the xanthan gum is evenly dispersed and taste for sweetness. Add more erythritol if you want it sweeter.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside to cool and thicken.

PASTRY

  • Place the flours, baking powder, xanthan gum, egg, butter, salt, baking powder and erythritol into a food processor and blend until you have a dough.
  • Form the dough into a ball with your hands, cover with parchment paper and place in the fridge. Chill for 45 minutes.

ASSEMBLY

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/375F degrees.
  • Lightly butter a pie dish.
  • Remove the pastry from the fridge and cut into half.
  • Place one half on a sheet of parchment paper and cover it with another layer of parchment paper.
  • Roll out gently into a circle slightly larger than the pie dish.
  • Remove the top layer of parchment paper, then using a hand under the bottom parchment paper place the pastry into the pie dish. If it breaks or cracks, repair it with your hands.
  • Spoon the cherry filling into the pie dish.
  • Take the second half of the dough and either repeat the rolling as above for a complete lid or roll out and cut into strips to make a lattice lid.
  • Bake for 40 minutes until the top of the pie is lightly golden and firm.
