Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie

  • 1 cup yacon syrup*Pecan Pie
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup birch xylitol or erithrytol
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) pecans
  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked deep-dish pie crust, if desired.
  • I personally do a crustless pie or make an almond flour crust.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Yacon takes on the flavors of what it is mixed into, so I did 3 Tablespoons Grade B Maple Syrup into a 1 cup measuring cup and then, filled it with yacon.
  • Mix yacon syrup, eggs, birch xylitol, butter and vanilla. Stir in pecans. Pour filling into pie crust, if desired.
  • Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes. Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.

Pie is done when center reaches 200°F. Tap center surface of pie lightly – it should spring back when done. For easy clean up, spray pie pan with cooking spray before placing pie crust in pan. If pie crust is overbrowning, cover edges with foil.

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

1 – 12 ounce package fresh or frozen cranberries

Cranberry Sauce

1/2 cup water

1  cup red grapes, cut in halves

1/2 cup birch xylitol or erythritol

1/2 teaspoon clear stevia

Wash Cranberries and put in a sauce pan with the water and xylitol.  Let it cook on medium while cutting the grapes in half.  Add the grapes to the pot and let it all come to a boil.  When cranberries and grapes are soft, mash them with a potato masher.  Add the stevia.

Let it cool and add 2-4 drops of Young Living Orange Oil.  Stir well and put in jars. IF you use the oils, you must store the sauce in glass jars and not plastic.  If you don’t want to do the oils, you can use orange juice instead of water when cooking this.

I make a double batch at Thanksgiving and put in jars.  Freeze some of them for the next time we do Turkey dinner.  My family LOVES turkey and the trimmings, so we do it several times a year.
