There is not many times that a Keto alternative is just as good as the real deal. Well, I’m here to tell you that this Keto Pumpkin Pie was. It was very good and the Keto pie crust was so buttery and fantastic. Even better, it’s a fairly simple recipe. I hope you’re able to make it and share with your family over the holidays. Or, enjoy yourself!

You can hand mix all these ingredients but it is way easier to use your food processor. Dump all of your crust ingredients into the processor. Put on the dough setting and combine all ingredients. I stopped it after 30 seconds and scraped the sides and ran it again for another 20-30 seconds.
Remove the dough from the processor and place on a sheet of parchment paper, making sure you form it into a ball. Because of the butter, it is quite greasy so beware. Place another sheet of parchment paper on top and roll out into pie crust shape. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect, you can help form it in the pie pan. Also note, it tries to crumble. Get creative placing in your pie pan. I turned my pie pan over the crust, placed my hand under and flipped. Form the edges as pretty as you can. You can press any of the excess back into the crust to fill gaps or cracks.
Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, just until it starts to brown. Remove and let cool.
In a large mixing bowl, throw all of your filling ingredients in. With a hand mixer, mix on low until all of the ingredients are good and combined. Don’t overmix or you will create a bunch of air in the filling and it won’t cook right.
Now that the pie crust has cooled enough, about 15 minutes, dump you pie filling into your crust. Level with a spatula. Place in the oven at 325 degrees and cook for about 40 minutes, or until there is no more jiggle. Remove and let cool down before slicing.
Once cooled, slice and enjoy! Top with a dab of homemade whip!
