Questions & Replies
Clear five stars - I can't compare because I never had Kentucky pie before, but this one was extremely addictive! I used a gluten free pie crust and used erythritol instead of the granulated sugar to have less sugar. For the flour I used a mix of 1/3 arrowroot starch and 2/3 white rice flour, and it worked like a charm. As there was no direction about the choc chips, I used 85 percent chocolate, and it turned out soooo goood!!! You're right, you'd never guess how easy this fantastic pie is! Thanks for posting.<br/>Made for PAC Spring 2011.
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
As my name suggests, I am a part-time hobbit, escaping to my quiet life in the Shire whenever I can. In reality, I am a busy student who uses cooking as therapy. I am severely gluten intolerant and mildly dairy intolerant, so most of the recipes I post/comment on will be compatible with my dietary restrictions. Still, I love to eat, and have learned that you don't have to sacrifice flavor and personality when you go gluten and dairy free. I tend to like recipes that are either real homey comfort food, or transport me to the places I've travelled to, or would like to someday visit. I believe in eating organic, ethically raised meat and vegetables. I like to stay as close to nature as possible, eating mostly whole foods.
