raw walnut pie (pecan pie)
We love pecan pie, the creaminess, the sweetness, the crunch. Prior to being diagnosed with celiac, we would order, the chocolate bourbon pecan pie and request the WholeFoods bakery replace the pecans with walnuts.
This raw walnut pie was easy to make. We used walnuts and hazelnuts in the crust and walnuts in the filling and on top. The next time we make this, we may try adding the chocolate layer just for my husband.
Here is the recipe link
