With Lil' Guy's sensitivities to wheat, soy, dairy,
and a multitude of other ingredients,
it can be challenging to offer him traditional foods.
I found this recipe here
and it required no substitutions,
so I gave it a go.
I'm glad I did!
This is a great recipe for those following a raw diet,
as there is no baking involved!
This is the first time I've used dates,
but they really add a subtle sweetness to the crust.
The crust is pressed down into a glass pie shell.
The filling gets whizzed in the processor.
One bowl, less to clean up!
