I created this low sugar dessert from my Basic Blueberry Pie recipe, but I added a slight twist to it by including Strawberries, since they are both in season. I made it for Independence day,and I must admit it was a very big pie, baked in a 12 inch deep metal pan. Must have weighed at least 4-5 pounds when it was all done. Turned out great. My husband loved it, and I enjoyed it too. I did use reguar sugar, but used more Splenda than sugar, and the results were amazingly delicious. The neighbors appreciated me sharing with them.

Crimp edges then brush top of crust with evaporated milk or egg wash, and sprinkle with turbinado or regular sugar.

    You can make this pie with all regular sugar if desired, I just opted to use both, to create a less sweet combination. Since we prefer it less sweet. You may also use all splenda. Brushing the top of the crust with the milk or egg wash helps to give it a more golden color. If you do not have a 12 inch deep dish pie tin you can make 2 regular size pie tins. The turbinado sugar is commonly used by food stylist, to give food a much better eye appeal. It is usually found in the baking isle, I found mine at Wal Mart.
