I asked her team.up with me on a little project...
since I am not so good in the kitchen/ DIY area and she is AMA.ZING....(not only does she create incredible things but her presentation is BEAUTIFUL), I have asked her to help me out in these areas! She is truly an inspiration with all of her creativity.
Today she is bringing you this fabulous recipe!
Low Fat (Whole Wheat) Fruit Tart Recipe:
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
3/4 a teaspoon of salt
4 packets of stevia in the raw sweetener
1/2 cup of cold unsalted organic butter
4-5 Tablespoons of cold skim milk
Place your whole wheat flour, salt and sweetener in your food processor and blend for just a second. Slowly start blending in cubed cold butter as it will start to form a soft crumbled mixture. After all your butter is added add your milk one teaspoon at a time until your mixture is like a thick paste.
Take mixture and roll it out onto a floured silicon baking mat and roll out into a large circle, larger than your pie dish or tart dish. Flip your mat and crust over your dish and cut the edges even with your dish. I fold my edge over a bit to give it a ridge. Using a fork poke several hold into the bottom of your pie crust. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the top edges are a deep golden brown. Cool completely before adding your filling and fruit.
I used 2 packages of sugar free cheesecake pudding mixture and made as directed for a pie using 3 1/2 cups of cold skim milk to mix to the pie filling. Pour immediately into your cooled pie crust and start topping with your favorite fruits.
1/2 cup of naturally sweetened apple juice
1/4 cup of agave nectar
1 1/2 teaspoons of cornstarch
Place all ingredients into a small pot on your stove and stir until cornstarch has dissolved. Heat on medium until your mixture comes to a boil. Stir continuously. Once your mixture becomes thicker (not too thick) remove from heat and let it cool for 4-7 minutes. Use a spoon to gently glaze your fruit tart spreading on top of your entire pie. Refrigerate immediately.
I typically try to stay away from artificial sweeteners (except for Crystal Light drinks) but I tried out stevia and a sugar free pie mix with this. It turned out great.
