I use walnuts for crusts for both my low carb cheesecake and for my
thanksgiving parev, low carb pumpkin pie adn fine that teh oiliness of the
nuts does not require additional buter or oil or margarine. Witha little
sweetener to taste it works fine and packs nicely withotu the extra fat.
I buy walnut pieces and whap them up in the processor.

I have tried walnuts and pecans. We like the almond best

As for your filling, do you think it would work with either margarine or
neutral oil and either soy or almond milk since it is only 1 Tablespoon so
can't be a majjor taste feature. Would it be worth making parev or would
it be blah without the butter?

I think it would work with margarine. Probably will work with soy milk.
Mocha Mix or other parve milk sub would be perfect. It bakes really
well. I've used it for parve pumpkin pie where the recipe calls for
evaporated milk.

Also, did you all know that you can get a cyclamate "brown sugar" that has
no sugar at all in Canada? If you hae friends there you can get them to
send it to you. do you thnk that would work or would the half of real
brown sugar in the Splenda mix be required for proper functioning?

I think the pie would not set up without the sugar in the Splenda mix.
I am aware of non-sugar "brown sugar" products, but I don't think it
would work in this recipe.

Lots of questions, I know, but that's what we are all here for:-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Nice to see you posting again
