Gluten-Free Game Pie

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Mia in Germany

To use up the very dry game from making game broth I made up this pie. It turned out astonishingly tasty. Cooking time is only approximately because after reducing the oven from 400 to 350 degrees I mostly watched the pie and not the clock... The pie should be perfect when the top is light brown and slightly crispy. For the meat I used rabbit and pheasant, but I guess you can use any kind of game or even shredded cooked chicken. For the cream cheese I used goat cream cheese, but you can use any kind of cream cheese.

This was great! I had a little trouble with the crust but I used the pre-mixed gluten free stuff from Costco with flax and ancient grains so maybe that altered it some. Also the recipe says teaspoons of water and the directions say tablespoons of flour. I ended up using 3 tablespoons of water. The inside part was fabulous. I used domestic rabbit. Made for CQ 14.
