I was diagnosed with diabetes about 4 years ago. Of course we all know the thing that raises our blood sugar most is carbohydrates, and when it comes to sugar-free pies, the culprit is the carbs in the wheat flour of the crust. That is why I make a crustless pie, and not just for the holidays, but any time I get a hankerin’ for it.
Once cooled, this pie comes out of the pan in whole slices, doesn’t fall apart and tastes awesome.
