Gluten Free Strawberry PieProject 365 – #176

Unlike a traditional pie crust, this gluten free almond crust version is quick and easy.  It also tastes great.  Because D has been really wanting some strawberry pie, I decided to fill this crust with a delicious strawberry filling.  Whether you’re gluten free or not, this pie is sure to be a hit and your next summer time gathering.  (Add some blueberries and whipped cream for a festive 4th of July dessert.)

With the pie pictured, I ran out of fresh strawberries because we were enjoying snacking on them. lol!  I used half frozen strawberries – thawed – and half fresh strawberries to fill in the shell.

We like lots of strawberries in our pies, so that’s why I slice the strawberries.  You could also use the strawberries whole or halved.
