Have any of you out there made the Ritz Mock Apple Pie recipe?
I am starting to think of baking for the holidays and may try it (mainly because I am curious - not because of allergies).
But seeing this recipe made me curious about mock Pecan Pie. Growing up, pecan pie was my absolute favorite! But Bella can't have it (even though she's not allergic to pecans - can't have that cross contamination risk though). But I do want her to experience even a fraction of the joy of this taste sensation, so I am going to do my best to recreate it safely.
I've seen two versions online. One with oats and one with pinto beans (which sounds horrendous, but hey so does a pie full of crackers and people seem to love it).
But I have a few ideas on how to make a nut-free pecan pie up my sleeve and I'll post my findings soon.
Come to think of it, are there any recipes that have nuts (or other allergen) that you wish you could make nut free? Maybe I can take a stab at those too! Leave me a comment -
