  • 1 cup washed, un-topped, diced strawberries (fresh preferred)

  • 12 cup Truvía® Sweet Complete® All-Purpose Sweetener, Monk Fruit

  • 3 tsp from packet (12g) pectin for no-sugar-needed recipes

  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch

  • 14 cup water

Pastry Shell

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for counter

  • 2 Tbsp. Truvía® Sweet Complete® All-Purpose Sweetener, Monk Fruit

  • 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch pieces

  • 12 tsp salt

  • 1 large egg*

  • 1-2 Tbsp. water if needed


  • 1.

    To make the filling: Place all ingredients, in the order listed, in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Stir and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  • 2.

    Line a 8x8 baking pan with cling wrap and pour filling into it.

  • 3.

    Place in the refrigerator to firm up filling. Roughly 30 minutes.

  • 4.

    In the meantime, place flour, butter, Truvía® Sweet Complete® All-Purpose Sweetener from Monk Fruit, and salt into a bowl.

  • 5.

    Work the dough by mixing by hand. Continue to work the butter into the flour until only small pea size pieces are visible.

  • 6.

    Add egg and mix again with hands until a smooth dough comes together.

  • 7.

    Form dough into a ball. Flatten, and wrap in cling film.

  • 8.

    Refrigerate dough for about 30 minutes.

  • 9.

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • 10.

    After the dough has chilled, lightly cover a work surface with flour.

  • 11.

    Remove cling wrap and roll out the dough to about an 18” thickness, similar to a pie crust thickness. Try to keep the dough in a rectangle shape, which will make cutting easier.

  • 12.

    Cut the dough into 3x2 inch pieces, using a ruler and a pizza cutter to get the right size. You will need to make 16 pieces. Re-work the scrap dough to get the 16 pieces you need.

  • 13.

    Next, remove filling from pan, remove cling wrap and cut into ½ x 1 ½ inch pieces, using a ruler and a pizza cutter to get the right size.

  • 14.

    Place one rectangle of dough on a flat surface, top with a rectangle of filling, making sure to leave an edge of dough visible on all 4 sides.

  • 15.

    Using the water, dip your finger in and wet the dough around the filling. Then wet the edges of a second dough rectangle, and place the wet sides together to adhere.

  • 16.

    Pinch the edges to seal dough. For decoration, use a fork to make marks along the edges

  • 17.

    Use the fork to make three rows of air holes in the top. Move the fork around to make sure the holes are completely open.

  • 18.

    Place completed pastries on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 11 minutes, or just until edges start to brown.

  • 19.

    Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Set aside for 30 minutes.

  • 20.

    Drizzle/pipe with baking chocolate (white, milk or dark). Melt slowly in microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir to achieve a drizzle consistency.

  • 21.

    Sprinkle with crushed freezed-dried strawberries.

  • 22.

    Store in an air tight container.

*Please remember to wash hands, utensils, equipment, and work surfaces with hot, soapy water before and after they come in contact with raw egg.
