Gluten-Free Strawberry Cream Puff Pie

Gluten-Free Cream Puff Pie

Sometimes, you just need pie.
And when a group of food bloggers simultaneously come to that conclusion, Pie Party is the result.
Last year it was a spontaneously organized Twitter party that morphed into 1500+ people on Facebook all talking about pie.

This year, the tradition continues with Garrett McCord, Shauna Ahern, Ashley Baron Rodriquez and Justin Schwartz all hosting.

Lucky for me, a fellow CampBlogAway alumi just came out with her second pie book, Not So Humble Pies

Kelly Jaggers is the mastermind behind Evil Shenanigans, an exploration of all things tempting and delicious.

So when I looked for inspiration, flipping through her book was the solution.

So many tempting choices, how was I to choose?


I’m confident enough in my skills to sub out one of my gluten free pie crusts for any of her recipes.

Butter Pie Crust,

Cheddar Cheese and Thyme Crust,

Cookie Crumb Crust

It’s the combinations of flavors that attracted me to this book.

Imagine, Salted Peach Crumble Pie. Yup, I’m saving this one till the peaches come in later this summer.

Lemon Pistachio Tart in a lavender short crust.   This one is on the list too, just as soon as I harvest some fresh lavender this year.

Chipotle Peanut Butter Cheese Pie?  Maybe, but Fiona isn’t a peanut butter fan and I always make a recipe exactly as written the first time.

Hmmm, oh wait! I have  a container of organic strawberries.  That means, Triple Berry Cream Puff Pie is the one.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Bring water, butter, salt and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan.

  7. Cool for 5 minutes

Once you have the pie shell made and in the oven, it is time to make the Custard Filling

Once the shell and custard are done,

Layer the shell with the custard, top with an assortment of fresh berries of your choice

Then add whipped cream for true decadence.

And share!
