Yogurt & Blueberry Pie

As usual we are making more desserts. We really do try to do normal meals but I guess our family has a sweet tooth. To compensate for our sweet tooth, we convert recipes to Xagave using half the required sugar and try to use better, wholesome ingredients.

We took this recipe from Martha Stewart's cookbook "Pies and Tarts" This pie is a great breakfast treat and brings a whole new dimension to yogurt with a beautiful presentation. This is a die for breakfast dessert! :)

Crust: granola. I used my own granola recipe (click here)
1 1/4 cups granola
1/8 cup Xagave
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 T butter melted

Make the crust in your Bosch food processor. Pulse 1 cup of granola with Xagave and cinnamon till fine crumbs from. Drizzle in butter and process till combined. Add remaining granola. Mixture will be crumbly. Press into 9" stainless steel pie pan. Refrigerate till firm about 15 minutes. Bake crust till golden brown (about 10 minutes)

1 cup plain yogurt (check my blog for my home made yogurt recipe)
8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
2 Tbs. Xagave
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

In Bosch mixer beat cream cheese until very smooth. Add Xagave and vanilla and beat till smooth. Add yogurt and beat till smooth. Pour filling into prepared granola pie crust and refrigerate 6 hours or till set.

5 oz. blueberries
Xagave drizzled over blueberries

Just before serving, arrange blueberries on top and drizzle lightly with Xagave


  1. Hi Paula!

    Just received your wonderful newsletter and can't wait to try the hamburger buns. I used to make my own many years ago, but now that I have a Bosch I can't wait to give it a try again. Just one question though- in reference to method #2 when making the hamburger buns, since you are only using a 3 loaf recipe, should you be dividing the dough into thirds instead of sixths. My take on this was that the dough from one loaf was equal to approximately 12 hamburger buns. Is this correct? Just wanted to be sure before I got started so I was using the right amount of dough for each bun.

    The pie looks amazing and so great for the warm weather ahead.

    Thanks for any help you can provide regarding the hamburger buns.


  2. Sorry for the confusion. The 3 loaf recipe would be divided into 3 loaves...9 into 9 loaves...5 loaf into 5 loaves.

    You can make the larger bread recipes for hamburger buns and simply make as many hamburger buns as you would like to make and turn the rest into wonderful bread. This bread recipe is so versatile that you can make numerous baked goods with one simple recipe! Have fun with your Bosch!
