Strawberry Surprise

A pie for two!  Spring is finally here and I’ve discovered the perfect little dessert for a sunny day in the backyard.

CRUST

  • 1 cup almond flour

*double ingredients to make a standard pie size.

  1.  Preheat oven for 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine ingredients for dough in a bowl, mixing dry first. Then stir everything together with a spatula or spoon. Should be thick and easy to mold.
  3. Press dough inside a pre-sprayed or oiled baking dish. The one I used is 7 x 5 ” inner and oval shaped. The dough covered this very well. You could use a small, circular pie pan as well. This dough will NOT cover a 10″ diameter dish. I’d recommend doubling the ingredients for that.
  4. Slice strawberries.
  5. Pour coconut cream into pie dish about 1/2 the way up. Sprinkle cocoa powder on top.
  6. Fill up the other half with lot’s of strawberries 🙂
  7. Sprinkle cinnamon, almonds, and drizzle honey on top to taste (and a dash of salt if you prefer)

8. Bake for 6-15 minutes. Crust should be a golden toasty color.

Enjoy!!
