Pumpkin Chiffon Pie (Sugar & Gluten Free)
Fluffy....Light! Delicious! These words best describe this scrumptious and flavorful pumpkin pie. I'm pleased with how easily I was able to adapt one of our favorite pies into a healthier version.
I've always enjoyed baking pies, but I've recently quit making them because I just wasn't satisfied with the gluten free crust recipes I've tried. I've been wanting to be able to make a pie that is not only sugar and gluten free, but one that also holds it's shape AND tastes good! You know, not the cardboard versions of a crust that makes you decide not to make a pie after all. Well, this one happily surprised me! And I was glad I took the time to write done the amounts of everything I put in it.
The crust isn't quite as flaky as my non-healthy recipe, but this is the one I will be using from now on. My daughter who does NOT enjoy the coconut taste in baked goods actually said this one was good! I haven't tried it yet for pies that need to be baked with the filling in the crust, but I know it works great for pre-baked pie crusts like this one, peanut butter pie and other cream pies.
I'm planning on using this recipe for several pies I will be making during the holidays.
