KOSHER RECIPES FOR GLUTEN-FREE LIVING

Pie. Pie. Pie. Pie. Pie. Apple Raspberry Pie.





I love pie. I've never met a pie I didn't love, though sadly some pies just don't love me back.

This is a vegan gluten-free apple-raspberry pie with a crumble topping, made with no refined sugar and all local fruit. It was improvisational, and I didn't write the recipe down - I mixed up apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh raspberries, a little Earth Balance margarine, agave nectar and some lemon juice and a little cornstarch (or was it arrowroot starch or sweet rice flour?) for the filling. I will post the delicious whole-grain crumb topping recipe one of these days, I promise. It turned out deliciously. I have another frozen gluten-free pie crust in my freezer just waiting to be turned into another pie, so a recipe should be forthcoming in the next week or so.

The pie crust is this one, which I bought at my local Hannaford:

Natural Feast Gluten-Free Pie Shells (Frozen - 2 Units)

If you don't have a Hannaford near you, you can buy it from Gluten-Free Mall. They come in packages of two, and are vegan, kosher, gluten-free and free of refined sugar. Though my homemade pie crusts are better, these frozen guys are pretty darn decent and so very, very convenient.

Yum.

Yum-my! This looks so tasty. I'm curious about the crust ingredients- if it has eggs, or soy or nuts...? I'd love to find a ready-made pie crust I could use.

PS: Your challah looks positively beautiful!

Ooh. Can't wait to try it. There's a Hannaford's not to far from us and they have TONS of gluten free foods. Thanks for the inspiration to make a pie! Hope your transition to the east has been good.
