Celebrate summer with this keto friendly Low Carb Blackberry Pie recipe. This pie is made with mozzarella dough and a cross between a pastry and a pie. It makes a satisfying berry dessert that can be enjoyed by those on low-carb, keto, Banting, or diabetic diets.
In a small (about 1 1/2 quart) saucepan, whisk together the two tablespoons of sweetener and the xanthan gum.
Slowly add the lemon juice and the water, whisking between additions. Add the blackberries. Place pan over medium low heat. Bring mixture to as simmer, stirring frequently. Turn heat to low. Simmer until mixture has thickened and is jam-like. Set aside while making the dough.
Preheat oven to 350º Fahrenheit. Have a rolling pin, a baking sheet, and two sheets of parchment (about 18" long) within reach.
In a large, heavy saucepan, whisk together the almond flour, granulated stevia/erythritol blend, shredded mozzarella, and vanilla extract.
Place saucepan over low heat. Heat, stirring constantly, until cheese melts and the mixture becomes a dough. Turn dough out onto one of the sheets of parchment. Shape into a thick rectangle.
Cover dough with the other sheet of parchment. Roll out dough into a rectangle, about 11" X 14". Remove the top sheet of parchment and use it to line the baking sheet.
Keeping the parchment paper underneath, transfer the dough rectange to the baking sheet. Spoon the blackberry filling onto one side of the rectangle, being careful not to get too close to the edges. Leave about 1/2 inch of the uncovered.
Fold the other half of the rectangle over the filling. Using a fork, press down on the edges to form a seal. Place the pastries on the prepared baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, cut holes in the top so steam can vent while they bake. Be sure the holes go all the way through the dough. Otherwise, they will pop open at the seams while they bake.
Bake in the preheated oven for 19-22 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Check it frequently, because the bottoms will burn quickly. Remove from oven. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes before enjoying. Store any leftovers refrigerated in an airtight container.
