Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat the oven at 375 degrees F.

MAKING
2. In a bowl combine together almond flour, coconut, flax meal, butter, and Splenda.
3. In a 9-inch pie pan scrape out the mixture. Place a saran wrap over it and press with hands to give crust like shape as shown in video.
4. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees F.
5. Take out the crust from the oven and set aside to cool.
6. For whipped topping – In a mixing bowl add in heavy cream, Splenda, and vanilla extract. Beat with stand mixer until soft peaks form and no liquid is in the bottom of the bowl.
7. For cream cheese mixture – In another mixing bowl add in the cream cheese and Splenda, cream together on medium speed for 2 minutes.
8. Fold in half whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture, but be careful not to over-mix and lose the fluffiness of the whipped topping. Place into the refrigerator.

FINALIZING
9. On top of cooled crust, spread the cream cheese-whipped topping mixture out to the edges.
10. Spread sugar free cherry pie filling on top of the cream cheese mixture.
11. Pipe the remaining whipped topping along the outside of the pie pan.

SERVING
12. Serve Cherry Cheese Pie for dessert.
