By: EpicMatcha

Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST AND THE DECORATION STRIPS:

 

  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute of choice
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

 

FOR THE FILLING:

 

  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute of choice
  • 1 tablespoon Matcha green tea powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

 

FOR THE BUTTER TOPPING:

 

  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Matcha green tea powder
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions

 

FOR THE CRUST:

 

  • Preheat your oven to 360°F.
  • Butter an 8” round baking pan.
  • Butter another, smaller baking pan.
  • Mix together the 5 eggs, psyllium husks, sugar or sugar substitute, and baking powder.
  • Pour about 3/4 of the mixture into the round baking pan that you buttered. This will make the pie crust.
  • Pour the rest of the mixture into the smaller buttered pan. This will make the decoration strips.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool, keeping the crust in the pans.

 

FOR THE FILLING:

 

  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese, the egg yolk, sugar or sugar substitute, stevia extract, matcha powder, and vanilla bean seeds, and vanilla extract.
  • Separate the whites from the yolks of 2 eggs.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites. When they get fluffy, add in the cream of tartar and the powdered sugar.
  • Beat this mixture until stiff peaks form.
  • Using a spatula, carefully fold the egg white mixture into the cream cheese mixture. This mixture should remain airy.
  • Pour this filling into the cooled-down pie crust.

 

FOR BUTTER TOPPING:

 

  • Mix together the egg yolk, butter, matcha powder, and powdered sugar.

 

TO ASSEMBLE:

 

  • Take your smaller batch of “crust” and cut it into thin strips.
  • Make a criss-cross pattern on top of the pie with the strips.
  • Spoon your butter topping on top of the pie in dollops, between the criss-cross pattern. *Note: You can also heat up the butter topping a little, making it runnier, and then simply pour it over the top of the pie. Either way works.
  • Bake at 360°F for 20 minutes.
  • Allow the pie cool down, serve, and enjoy! Leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
