Keto Meringue Crust
Light and easy crust for any no-bake pie
- 2 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 Tbsp keto friendly sweetener Lakanto, Swerve, Erythritol, etc
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 250° F. Prepare pie pan or tart pans by greasing or spraying and dust with coconut flour.
Separate egg yolks and whites (you will get better structure to the egg whites if they are at room temperature). Place egg whites in mixer bowl, with whisk attachment.
Add cream of tartar and beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Add sweetener and vanilla and mix well.
Spread meringue into pie or tart pans, or use a pastry bag and tip to pipe in, for a prettier crust (you can also use tip with a ziplock bag with a corner cut).
Bake for 40 mins until crust is crisp and golden.
This recipe can also be used to make Meringue Cookies, by dropping or piping cookie sized drops of meringue on prepared baking sheet. Be sure to use parchment paper, silicone mat, or grease and dust cookie sheet with coconut flour prior to baking, or these will stick and fall apart as you try to remove them.
