|Brownie in a pie! Yum!|
I’m glad I finished up last week’s Friday Five yesterday, so I could play today’s RevGalBlogPals Friday Five about pie!
I am two years gluten free, and I’ve not delved into GF pie crusts yet. But I did have a pie life before, and hope to have a pie life again someday. I’ve discovered and multi-tested a great (very great!) GF brownie recipe, though!
Are pies an important part of a holiday meal? I didn’t grow up with much pie on an every day basis, so a pie does say “holiday” to me. I did serve a delicious holiday meal yesterday without pie. The sweet potatoes were like dessert, though.
Men prefer pie; women prefer cake. Discuss. My experience says “true” to this one.
Cherries — do they belong in a pie? I’ve never been a big fan of cherry pie. I prefer them as a topping to cheesecake. [Note to self: Find GF graham cracker crumb recipe!]
Meringue — if you had to choose, is it best on lemon or chocolate? I’m not a big fan of meringue. When the choice is lemon or chocolate — anything — the choice is always chocolate! (Anyone remember the boxed pudding cake mixes, back in the day, that came in chocolate or lemon?)
In a chicken pie, what are the most compatible vegetables? Anything you don’t like in a chicken pie? I used to pick out the peas from the pot pies we had as a kid. I would probably stick with the basics — carrots, potatoes, celery, onions, peas.

Thanks so much for sharing! And I will definitely be checking out the gluten free brownies just because! I don't discriminate when it comes to chocolate!
I agree about meringue – and whatever that is in your picture – I'd like piece please!
I would like the recipe for that pictured pie piece! I agree about chocolate pies–especially with whipped cream and NOT meringue.
Grateful not to be gluten-averse, that brownie pie looks luscious even though I can usually take chocolate or leave it alone.
We got the gluten-free pie crusts at Whole Foods, and those who ate them said they were quite good.
That brownie pie looks really good — and a definite compromise for the cake/pie debate!
oh the chocolate pie looks divine… calorie free right?
