|Blueberry Pie with Lemon Coconut Whipped Cream|
So, what am I up to with these pies? Well, I have been intent on creating wheat-free and also gluten-free pie crusts. Initially, I thought the gluten-free pie crust would be the biggest hurdle. My first crack was just that - crack! The crust was hard and dry and crumbly. Temporarily defeated, I moved on to the wheat-free crust. I tested both a blueberry filling and apple filling in the wheat-free crusts, both were delish. The Blueberry Pie was especially good with some Lemon Coconut Whipped Cream on the side (also a new recipe, and I've been terribly hooked on it lately)!

All my recipe madness has led to one happy fruit 'n pie filled kiddo, who is determined to eat enough pie to prove me wrong about the eye 'n stomach theory. Oh, and the other daughter wants no part of fruit pies, go figure - which of course, works out tickety-boo for our eldest ("YES! More for me")!
