Great pie!! Following Dienia's example I used Dutch "Koeken" Pie Crust made gluten free for the crust. Then I had to make some adjustments for dietary needs - used vegan cream cheese and rice whip to be dairy free and dark chocolate instead of semisweet. But anyway this was fantastic - another keeper!
