Fresh Fig and Walnut Pie

Fresh Fig and Walnut Pie is absolutely delicious!  When you have a mission fig tree in your garden, as we do, it will yield bountiful crops of figs in the summer. Use some of that crop to make Fresh Fig and Walnut Pie!  Easy to make, the crust uses almond and coconut flours and the custard filling can be made with Stevia or another Keto-friendly sweetener instead of sugar to reduce the carbs.  Delicious, dense but not heavy nor overly sweet, Fresh Fig and Walnut Pie combines walnuts, the warm spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and fresh figs for a rich and lovely seasonal dessert.  Try some of our other desserts, Blood Orange Custard Pie or Grilled Pineapple NY Cheesecake, too!

  5. Heat the oven to 365 F; combine the sugar or Stevia, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, sea salt and cornstarch in a mixing bowl.
  6. Chop the figs and walnuts and add them to the mixing bowl
  7. Zest and juice the lemon, adding both the mixing bowl; stir to mix the ingredients together, yielding a very thick pie filling.
  8. Spoon the filling into the room-temperature pie crust.  Place the pie pan on a baking sheet and place on the middle rack of the oven and bake the pie for 1 hour until the filling is firm and set.
  9. Transfer the pie to a cooling rack and allow to cool to room temperature before serving.  Enjoy Fresh Fig and Walnut Pie with or without a dollop of whipped cream.
