As per my usual, I decided to experiment with a dessert for guests that were coming over. I know, it's against the "rules" of inviting people over (you're not supposed to try something new for guests), but I felt the urge to make a pie, and to make it paleo-fied because it wasn't a treat day.
Besides, the people we had coming over weren't super-duper dessert freaks, so there was a chance they wouldn't even have any! So, worst case scenario, I took the time to make it, and then had to eat it all to myself, or I took the time to make it, and it bombed, but my friends don't care because they didn't want dessert anyway!
So, this pie really combines a few other things I've made before, but I've only just introduced each thing to the other for the first time here. They became kindred spirits, and I think you will appreciate their friendship to one another.
There is a quote from Anne of green Gables about October (see it up there?), perhaps that's why I felt Anne-ish & kindred spirited about this pie. :)

My super skeptical son, who almost automatically dislikes something he knows that I have made gluten free (even though I have far more successes than failures!!), devoured his piece, then asked for seconds. Then asked for some for breakfast the next day.
If you're looking to bring a pie to any Thanksgiving festivities this weekend, why not a paleo friendly pie! I know it's not "festive" (with pumpkins, apples, or the like), but it will make you thankful! And if you have gluten-free, or dairy-free or refined sugar free people in your family, they will be happy too!
Happy Thanksgiving weekend my Canadian friends!!! :)
