Recipe #23: Turtle Pie

2012-12-25Preparing to go to my grandpa Paulin’s house, I want to make something especially gluten-freetastic. Before the turtle cookies I had actually conceptualized a turtle pie. Christmas=perfect opportunity to crank out a love-filled deliciously mind-blowing turtle pie! I know this picture isn’t very pretty, but in all honesty the pie was a sloppy mess but sometimes the best tasting foods are not pretty.

Pecan Crust

  • 2 cups pecans
  • 2 tbsp melted butter (or coconut oil)
  • 4 tbsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp water

Whipped Caramel Layer

  • Caramel Candy Batter
  • Whipped Cream (feel free to make your own: can coconut milk, 28 drops stevia, 2 tbsp coconut oil, 1 egg, 1 tbsp vanilla processed and chilled overnight)

Caramel Candy Layer

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

To Make: Process the crust ingredients. Pat into a greased pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool. Make whip cream. Combine with 1/4-1/3 cup of caramel candy batter. Layer into pecan pie crust. Slightly melt caramel and layer on top of the whipped layer. Sprinkle pecans. Process ganache ingredients, melt. Drizzle over the top and you’ve got a bomb turtle pie. My grandpa claimed it needed put back in the freezer, in an effort to keep it for himself!
