For the crust:
1 1/8 cup almond flour
¼ cup stevia
2 tbs. butter, melted
1/8 tsp. salt
½ tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
For the filling:
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
¾ cup pumpkin
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
½ cup stevia
2/3 cup pecan pieces
For whipped cream:
1 cup heavy whipped cream (whipped into peaks.)
10 drops liquid stevia
¼ tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients for the crust. Add butter and egg, mixing well.
Spray an 8-inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray and press crust into bottom of the dish, using your hands to evenly distribute.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, in medium bowl beat together cream cheese and pumpkin. Add in spices and sweetener and continue to mix until well combined. Fold in 1/3 cup pecan pieces.
Carefully fold liquid stevia and vanilla into whipped cream. Then gently fold whipped cream into pumpkin mixture.
Once crust is completely cool, pour filling mixture into crust, distribute evenly. Sprinkle remaining pecan pieces on top of pie.
