Happy Pi Day! Yeah, I know I’m a dork. But I can’t help but love the most nerdy day of the year, when everything revolves around math and ridiculous puns. In the spirit of Pi day, I present to you the ultimate pie. Apple pie!
Like so many things, it is not what is on the outside but what is inside that counts. This pie is the classic American Apple Pie, with a twist. When you dig into this pie with its crisp crust and layers of sweet juicy apples, you would never know that it is both gluten free and sugar free. You may want to stop at one piece of pie, though. I heard that the roundest knight at King Arthur’s table was Sir Cumference. He ate too much Pi.
This apple pie is as easy as, well… Pi. You start with your favorite gluten free crust. Place sliced apples into the prepared pie crust. Then mix the sugar replacement (Xylitol), gluten free flour, and seasonings in a saucepan and simmer until thickened. Cover the apples with the thickened sauce and a pie crust. Then bake and enjoy!
As you enjoy your perfect slice of Apple Pie (and don’t forget the sugar free whipped cream!) just remember, Pi are round, not squared.
