Happy Pi Pie Day!

My kids love Pi and pie. What better way to celebrate than to bake up some Pi Pies! They are gluten-free and vegan.

                      Gluten-free Vegan Pi Pie
Gluten-free Pie Crust
1 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tbs. agave nectar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375. Combine all dry ingredients and mix well, then add the coconut oil and agave nectar and mix well. This dough will not roll, you will have to shape it by hand. Save about a golf ball size to flatten out between 2 pieces of wax paper. Roll it flat and cut out your Pi shape carefully and leave in wax paper until ready for use. You can add the extra dough back into your Pi crust. Par-bake crust for 10 minutes.  

Pi filling
2 cups fruit ( I used blueberry in one and cherry in the other)
1 Tablespoon tapioca flour
1 teaspoon  cinnamon or vanilla
3 Tablespoons agave nectar

Mix all ingredients together and fill your pie shell. Then carefully peel off the wax paper from the bottom side of your Pi symbol. Lay down carefully and peel the top off. Bake for 50 minutes and let cool.
