gluten-free piesToday is National Pie Day! And while I could crawl back in bed and cry about how I can never eat pie again since being diagnosed with celiac, instead I'm going to whip up my very own gluten-free pie of deliciousness. It's something everyone can, and should, do on this most festive of days, and with just a little chutzpah, we can!

Don't let National Pie Day pass you by just because you have to go non-traditional. Here are five of the best gluten-free pie recipes on the world wide web.


Sweet Potato Pie With a Pecan Crust

The easiest way to go gluten-free when making a pie crust is to use nuts. Pistachios, almonds, pecans -- they're all fantastic substitutes for your traditional crust. Also, this one has gluten-free graham crackers. WIN. And that's an easy win.
