The ingredient list is not typical for most pie recipes, but what grabbed my attention was it's simplicity and summertime feel. It's also dairy free and calls for honey, but no other sugars. Definitely worth a try.
Avocado Lime Pie
recipe from The Dairy Hollow House Cookbook: Crescent Dragonwagon w/ Jan Brown
Making the cashew creme is super easy-just cashews and water!
Adding the avocado and honey makes this wonderful super thick and smooth concoction-yum!
1. I used 1/2 cup honey, rather than the 1 cup called for in the recipe.
A full cup seemed like a lot of honey to me, and I am not fond of too much honey taste
2. I used 1 t of tapioca rather than the agar agar powder called for in the recipe.
I did not see the need to make a trip in the car all the way to Whole Foods for one ingredient,
and most of you will be more likely to have the tapioca on hand.
It's not quite set up enough for it's photo op, so I will post a slice photo later...so you can see the layers! I did sneak a forkful, and it is creamy and dreamy...usually I like coffee with pie, but I think a beer might fit the bill on this steamy summer evening.
Happy, happy PIE DAY!
