|This year's birthday pie|
My husband indulged me this year for his birthday. I tried a no bake chocolate cheesecake with a gluten free crust. The cheesecake was spot on. The crust ... well a friend said it tasted a bit stale. I used organic, gluten free chocolate rice puff cereal.
Like so many things in my life lately, it was worth taking a risk and trying a new recipe. I'm thankful Hubby approved a different pie this year. It was his birthday treat. Last year's rustic apple pie still gives me nightmares.
I also dreaded trying a gluten free crust this year. We found a pricey alternative to wheat flour — C4C. It's so worth it. Hubby can make a beautiful, lattice topped pie crust using Cup For Cup or regular flour.
While my gluten free pie crust may be stale, I haven't felt that way in other creative endeavors. I'll steal the phrase most use for my toddler tornado (typically with a shake of the head), "Busy, busy, busy." You know what I mean as you are all "busy, busy," too.
I'm grateful for a new semester of classes, the return of Perfect Picture Book Fridays and that gluten free eating has helped Hubby.
What's your favorite birthday treat?
