Agave Cherry Pie, A How To Video

No white refined sugar here! Learn how to make this tasty pie!

This past week I decided to give up the substance we know as white refined sugar. Now why in the world I do such a thing? Well, if you don’t already know about them you should definitely take a gander at all of the problems that are linked to the over consumption of refined sugar. I’m serious; it’s some pretty bad stuff. First off, white sugar has a higher rating on the glycemic index. What this means is that it is more likely to spike your blood sugar which makes your pancreas release more insulin than necessary. This excess of insulin makes you crave for more sugar and thus creates a harmful continuing cycle that can very well lead to diabetes. If that isn’t enough to scare you away from white sugar, it has also been linked to insomnia, hormone related cancers, and a slew of other ailments. Plus white sugar is filtered with bone charcoal…..ew.

With that said, I’ve been a white refined sugar junkie all of my life and seeing as diabetes runs in my family I had to make a change. I’m not going to lie, this week had been fairly difficult without all of the sweet treats I was used to gobbling up…that is until someone shared a cure to my woes.

Why not use natural sugars to flavor my goodies? Natural sugars, like honey and agave nectar are lower on the glycemic index than white sugar and absorb slower into the body, therefore leading to no extreme blood sugar spikes! I did a little more homework and it seemed to me that agave nectar would be my main choice because it bakes better than honey. “Okay”, I thought, “let’s get cooking!”

I decided to make a cherry pie this week because, heck, who doesn’t love a good pie? Plus I figured it would be a perfect dish to try out my new natural agave nectar. I got to practice with my new toy, the Cuisipro cherry/olive pitter, and bring out my good ol’ Staub pie dish, which was just an added bonus. Pitting the 4 cups of cherries I needed was a breeze so this pitter was totally worth it at just $12. Talk about a time saver!

Agave Cherry Pie

What You’ll Need:

Your favorite sugar-free pie dough recipe or prepared pie dough

4 cups fresh cherries

1 cup agave nectar

1 egg

¼ teaspoon almond extract

2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon water

2 tablespoons butter

1.5 tablespoons all purpose flour

¼ teaspoon salt

A quick note: Since this was my first time experimenting with agave I’d like to share my results once the pie was cooled. It tasted great but this recipe yielded a very “juicy” pie, if you get my drift. Next time I think I’ll use only ¾ of a cup of agave nectar and maybe bake it a little longer as well. The flavor though, once again, is delish! Eat with sugar free ice cream or with fresh made whipped cream. Don’t forget to use agave nectar instead of white sugar to sweeten your whipped cream.
Until Next Time!

The best things about this recipe: it is fast and easy to make…NO bake time…it can be made ahead of time….and everyone loves it! For a Patriotic twist…I use 1 can of Cherry Pie Filling and 1 can of Blueberry Pie Filling. For a lighter version…..I use Lite Cherry Pie Filling, 1/3 less fat PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, and Fat Free Whipped Topping.

Home cooked beer rocks and cherry pie

Recipe below!!
And while you are picking up the bread dough…don’t forget the pie!

This is the end product of 12+ hours of labor my wife put into making beer rocks from scratch. All that work only yielded about 30 beer rocks. She also made a cherry pie the same way I do.

HERE IS THE RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1. Make homemade bread dough, or buy frozen dough. (aprox. 6 loaves)

2. fry up 5 lbs of hamburger and drain.

3. Dice and boil 1 large head of cabbage in water for about 20 min.

4. Combine cooked beef and cabbage, add salt and pepper to taste, mix well.

Take a ball of dough and flatten to about the size of a small plate, 5-6″.

Place shredded Mozzarella cheese on the dough first. Then add heaping spoon of meat mix.

Pinch the dough around the mix. Bake 350 until golden/brown. This will be placed on a greased and floured cookie sheet. For a softer bread, brush with melted butter and eat right away or store in Ziplock while still warm for even softer bread.


You can do anything for the filling. You can make a pizza pocket or a breakfast sandwich. The only trick is to put the cheese on the dough first, and then any filling on top of the cheese. Wrap and pinch the dough and bake. You have a calzone, or a bierock, or anything you want. If you don’t pinch the dough well enough, then a lot of the cheese oozes out. As you can see in the video.

Linda’s Homemade Bread Recipe!

3 1/4 tsp dry yeast
2 1/2 cups of warm water
2 Tblsp of shortening
3 Tblsp of sugar
1 Tblsp of salt
6-7 cups of white flour
Put warm water in bowl. Add fresh yeast and sugar to dissolve. Let stand about 5 minutes then add salt, melted shortening, and 3 1/2 cups of flour. Beat smooth. Add the rest of flour slowly until thick enough. Cover with towel and let raise. Divide in two parts on bread board, knead, and place in pans. (You need to grease and flour the pans)
Let rise AGAIN. Bake 40-50 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Pull out when golden brown and baste with butter if you want a soft crust or leave plain for a crunchy crust.

Bread maker recipe (its pretty good, but it is nothing compared to the homemade dough or frozen dough)

1 1/3 cup of warm water
1 1/2 Tblsps of olive oil
1 1/2 tsps of salt
2 Tblsps of sugar
4 cups of flour
2 tsps of dry yeast
Place all ingredients in the bread maker in exact order they are listed.
Once the flour is added, put a small dent in the center of the flour only 1/2 inch deep.
Then add the dry yeast in this small hole you created. (be sure when making the dent that you do not make the hole so deep that it reaches the liquid) Start the machine and follow the bread maker instructions for “dough.”
