Pumpkin Pie

Keto Pumpkin Pie

INGREDIENTS:

Crust:
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Filling:
  • 3 ounces granulated Swerve
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree, or 15 ounces homemade pumpkin puree
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 3 large eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch pie dish lightly and set aside. In a food processor, pulse all the crust ingredients until a dough forms. Press dough into pie dish starting at the bottom and working up the sides.  
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and pulse 3 times to mix. Add the cream cheese and pulse until a homogeneous paste forms. Add the pumpkin and butter and process for 30 seconds. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl, then process until the mixture is completely smooth, about 30 seconds longer. Add the eggs and process until completely smooth, scraping down sides as necessary. For extra-smooth pumpkin pie, press the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer using the back of a ladle.
  3. Pour the mixture into prepared pie shell and smooth over the top with a rubber spatula. Rap the shell firmly against the counter a few times in order to release any air bubbles. Transfer pumpkin pie to the baking sheet in the oven and bake for until the filling puffs slightly and the center only moves slightly when jiggled, 30 to 40 minutes, rotating the pumpkin pie half way through baking. Allow the pumpkin pie to cool for at least one hour before serving. The pumpkin pie may be chilled for up to two days.

Nutrition:

1/8 of pie has roughly 300 calories, 7g carb, 27g fat and 8g protein. This is an estimate and based off my entry of the ingredients into My Fitness Pal.
