Some friends were coming over, and I was serving the roast for dinner, and thought a homey pie would be a great dessert. However, I'm not the biggest fan of traditional pies (apple, cherry, etc.). I basically really like things with chocolate!
So, I got inventive. I made a gluten free crust I hoped would work, and pulled out from my baking cupboard things I thought might be nice in a pie. To tie it all together, I used my regular butter tart filling recipe, but added some gluten free flour to make sure it would really set.
The result? Perfection.....for realz.....
Butter Tart Pie
For the crust:
For the filling:
This pie had the most fantastic, complex flavours from all of it's elements. The crust was not overwhelming, and held up well. The buttertart-ness of it was so good and not too sweet. We enjoyed it with a cup o' decaf coffee, and I enjoyed it again the next morning for breakfast with regular coffee!
So often my gluten free experiments don't always work (I just threw out a big batch of quiche with gluten free pastry crust last week!), but when they do work out, gosh, it makes my day! :)
I will be making this pie again (and again!).
Have a great weekend!
