two-ingredient dough and sugar-free pie filling

Here is a recipe for a two-ingredient dough and sugar-free pie filling that is about 4 points total:

Crust (0 points)

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt

Filling (4 points)

  • 1 (15-ounce) can tart cherries, packed in water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine the flour and yogurt. Using a fork or your hands, mix until a shaggy dough forms.
  2. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes until smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the cherries, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 12-inch circle. Transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie plate. Trim the edges, leaving a 1-inch overhang.
  5. Pour the cherry filling into the pie crust. Fold the overhang of the dough over the filling, and crimp the edges to seal.
  6. Cut a few slits in the top of the pie crust for ventilation. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  7. Let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

This recipe is for a single serving pie. If you are looking to make a larger pie, you will need to double the recipe and the points will increase accordingly.

Here are some additional tips for making a sugar-free pie filling:

  • Use tart cherries instead of sweet cherries. Tart cherries are naturally lower in sugar.
  • Thicken the filling with cornstarch instead of sugar. Cornstarch will thicken the filling without adding any sweetness.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon juice to the filling. Lemon juice can help to brighten the flavor of the fruit and make it taste less tart.
  • Spice up the filling with cinnamon, nutmeg, or other spices. Spices can add flavor and depth to the filling without adding any sweetness.

I hope this helps!
