There is nothing like a Mixed Berry Pie, it's a favorite in our home. I made this pie a few weeks back and thought I'd pull out the recipe with Thanksgiving in mind. The crust turned out incredible, thick, flaky n' tasty! Jerry and I couldn't keep our paws off it. I'll be making it again and again. Winter, spring, summer or fall all you'll have to do is call and I'll be there....... making a pie. :)
Vegan Gluten-Free Pie CrustMakes 1 – 9-inch Pie Shell
1. Preheat oven to 400F
2. Add in almonds and gluten-free all-purpose flour in a food processor. Processing until a fine flour is formed.
3. Add sea salt and coconut oil. Process until combined.
4. Transfer mixture into a large bowl; add in gluten-free oats and three tablespoons of water. Combine mixture until it forms a dough, adding in more water if necessary.
5. Press dough evenly into a 9 inch pie pan.
6. Refrigerate dough for 15 + minutes.
7. Bake empty pie crust for 12 to 15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
Mixed Berry Pie Filling
1. Combine the sweetener, arrowroot flour, water and sea salt. Stir until arrowroot flour dissolves, or shake in a small jar with a lid. I shook in a small jar and loved the results!
2. In a saucepan, add blueberries and arrowroot flour mixture. Heat over low-medium heat until the mixture has thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
3. Pour blueberries into prepared pie shell and refrigerate until completely filling sets, or freeze!
To sky-high pie dreaming!
This dessert was inspired by Blossoming Lotus Vegan World-Fusion Cuisine cookbook. I have to share the story of how I stumbled upon this beautiful beloved cookbook.My husband spent time in Kauai, HI learning the art of Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing. I'll do another post or book possibly about that subject, for now we'll focus on the food. :) While in Kauai he would eat at the Blossoming Lotus Cafe, enjoying tantalizing meals. Years later when we met, I was creating vegan and vegetarian meals. He told me about the Blossoming Lotus Cafe and would even call me his Blossoming Lotus. I was working in corporate america at the time and the gal who sat in the cubicle behind me used to be a vegan. She knew I experimenting with the new lifestyle change and mentioned she had a book she no longer used. She brought it in and gave it to me as a beautiful gift. It was shocking to see it was none other than the Blossoming Lotus cookbook from Kauai! I told my soon to-be husband and cooked him a meal to remember! I made Ms. Austin's Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Pilaf covered in Avalon's Magic Mushroom Gravy! It was incredible. Saturday I was looking for a different, healthy yet tasty pie for dessert with some new friends. I decided to pull out this book and see what I could find. I saw the picture for the Dream Weaver's Live Fruit Pie with the Tropical Bliss Out Pie filling! I adapted it adding a big twist of "Christa" to it! To start, a healthy and wholesome live pie crust made from cashews, dates, spices and brown rice syrup!
The Cherry Banana Cream Pie oh so blissful and creamy filling:
