Pecan pie is good, cherry pie, pumpkin pie is good too. My mom makes the best pie crusts, her secret is to use lard or at least shortening, no oil. Meat pie is my very favorite, with cream of mushroom soup, beef or chicken, peas, green beans, potatoes, carrots. That's one of the things I miss the most. I make very good cheesecake, which I think of as more of a pie than a cake. I'm working on a low sugar version which I'll post if it works.
Hm- maybe I'll make a meat pie sometime with a mashed potato crust. But I like the crispiness of regular dough too much, maybe I'll just take the hit sometime. I haven't made the cheesecake yet but I imagine the baking stevia would work if nothing else. My idea is to use almond flour for the crust, and baking stevia to mix in with the egg and cream cheese, etc. I won't make a low sugar and low fat version because that would just be nasty. I'm trying to go for zero grain, low sugar.
