Strawberry Custard Pie

Strawberry Custard Pie
recipe courtesy Mass Recipes

I will admit, I still love food! I try real hard though to take things in moderation. One of the recipe blogs I frequent is Columbus Foods. She does a great job of spot lighting local foods. Oh yeah, she takes awesome food porn! Anyway, her recipe called for blackberries. Just a little pricey right now, so we went with strawberries. All I can say is, "I hope it tastes as good as it looks"! I'll let you know! I did modify the recipe to make it a little more weight loss friendly!

1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
2 c. fresh strawberries
4 eggs
2/3 c. splenda
1 1/3 c. Hoods calorie countdown milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Sprinkle strawberries in bottom of pie shell. Mix beaten eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla together and pour over blackberries. Bake at 400 degrees until custard tests done with a knife coming clean when stuck halfway between the rim and the middle.

Amazing to see how this one recipe has inspired so many variations (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc). Great job on your pie. So it tasted good using Splenda instead of sugar?

I've been trying to avoid sugar recently since my weight loss has stalled, so I'm looking to modify a lot of existing recipes to use Splenda instead (unfortunately, I've found that this requires making it the "normal" way at least once as a baseline for how the recipe should turn out).
