Thanksgiving is around the corner and many are thinking about pies. For those of us who are corn allergic and / or have gluten sentitivities, tasty pies can be difficult to come by, so I’ve got some ideas here that do the trick.
2 Pie Crust Options
The first option comes from Mighty Nest’s paleo pie crust at http://schools.mightynest.com/articles/perfect-grain-free-pie-crust
I enjoyed this crust, but I would have used the entire egg so that it would be more moist.
Need a vegan option? Elana’s Paleo Pie Crust is for you: elsnaspantry.com/paleo-pie-crust/
Both these crusts work well for the following pies.
Apple Pie Filling
6+ apples, peeled & sliced
lemon juice, to taste
pumpkin pie spice, to taste
Place desired amount of ingredients in slow cooker / crock pot. Cook on low until desired tenderness is reached.
For a Vegan Pumpkin Pie Filling, I really like the one from Ceara’s Kitchen: http://www.cearaskitchen.com/vegan-pumpkin-pie/
I got a little adventurous and put a bit of the apple pie filling on the pumpkin pie and YUM! The lemon in the apple filling danced with the citrus in the pumpkin and I experienced a little slice of “citrucy, autumnal heaven”.
