It really brightens up my days to know that people have enjoyed reading my books. So I was especially pleased to see a recent glowing review by Joanna Steven, a raw food enthusiast, who weighed in on my raw food sweets and treats book Raw for Dessert.
As part of her review, Joanna included my Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe that uses an Almond Pecan Crust, a variation of my Almond Crust recipe. Almond Crust is easy. It has just 3 ingredients: nuts, dates, and salt. You simply process them together and then use your fingers to form a crust in a pie or tart pan. (This is a terrific thing to do with kids).
My raw food Almond Crust recipe is also super-versatile. The delicate flavor is ideal with fruit, so you can use it to make a raw food Apple Pie or a raw food Blueberry Tart. Joanna’s version (actually something created by one of her friends) fills my crust with layers of date paste and chocolate ganache to create an irresistibly delicious Chocolate Pecan Pie.
Have YOU been tinkering with my recipes? I hope so. And I hope you’ll post your variations and pictures if you have them so that other readers of this blog can enjoy them, too...including yours truly!
Thanks in advance for sharing!
