  • 3/4 cup Carbalose flour
  • 1/4 cup resistant wheat starch
  • 2 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cold water

Crust Preparation Instructions:

Cut shortening into flour until the particles are like small peas. Sprinkle in water, 1 tablespoon at a time tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry is clinging to the side of the bowl. Roll out between 2 lightly dusted sheets of wax paper. Invert into a 9 inch pie plate and press into place. Prick crust all over with a fork. Bake pie crust in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes or until set, but not browned. Cool completely.

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup light isomalt syrup **

** Note: To create isomalt syrup, dissolve 1/2 cup isomalt in 1 cup of DaVinci Sugar Free Sweetener Syrup.

Filling Preparation Instructions:

Melt butter and chocolate together and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together isomalt syrup and eggs. Add the chocolate mixture and blend until smooth.

Place cooled pie shell on a cookie sheet and pour in filling. Sprinkle cranberries evenly on top. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven 45 minutes or until center is just set. Cool for at least 2 hours before serving.

Set on a flaky pasty crust, the silky smooth chocolate with an occasional cranberry burst will delight your senses.
