Keto Pecan Pie Directions
Food process it
In a food processor, add almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum and salt. Pulse to combine. Add chilled cubed butter and cream cheese. Pulse until coarse crumbles form. (See instructions below if you don't have a food processor.)
Combine the rest
Add egg and vinegar. Pulse mixture until just combined and a dough ball forms. Wrap pie dough in plastic wrap, flaten into a disc shape and refrigerate for one hour.
Roll out the pie
Place the chilled dough in between two sheets of parchment paper. Starting from the center of the disc and working your way out in all directions, roll out pie dough into a circular shape. If the parchement paper crumples beneath the dough, either carefully stretch the paper out or flip the parchment paper so the bottom layer is on top and stretch out the paper. Continue rolling until you are at least an inch wider on all edges than the pie pan you want to use. Crust should be between 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
Place in pie pan
Remove top layer of parchment paper. Place pie pan upside down on top the pie crust. Holding one hand on the pie pan, slide your hand under the bottom parchment paper and flip so the pie pan is on the bottom and crust is on top. Remove parchement paper.
Shape the dough
Gently press the pie dough into the pie plate and trim the edges if needed. Flute the edges of the dough by pinching dough with your thumb and index finger all around the crust. Refrigerate until ready to bake.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Start the filling
In a saucepan, add heavy cream, sugar-free syrup and golden monkfruit. Mix and heat over medium heat until sweetener has dissolved and mixture is heated through.
Stir in butter and salt until butter is melted.
Whisk in egg yolks.
Scatter and pour
Scatter chopped pecans in the bottom of the pie crust. Pour in pie filling. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until the filling is set and lightly jiggly. Refrigerate for 1 hour to cool and set the filling.
