Tis the season for pie! And since I am personally obsessed with all things British, I am going to subject you to a traditional English recipe once again. But fear not, for as always I have added a unique twist to the classic recipe. Because who likes messing with a good thing? I do! With the help of MI-DEL Pie Crusts, I have created a scrumptious pie recipe to add to the holiday bake list: Mincemeat Almond Pie with Bourbon Glaze. Who wants a slice?
For red-blooded Americans a pie with ‘meat’ in the title might sound a bit unappetizing. My own lovely mother’s comment upon hearing my recipe idea was, and I quote, was ‘That sounds disgusting’. Nothing like having the full support of your family behind you, am I right? Well, if you’ve never tried mincemeat before then you’re this will be an exercise in trust, my friends. Yes, there’s meat in mincemeat, but there’s also a lot of other yummy things like apples, raisins, and holiday spices. Add a bit of almond cake, a scrumptious gluten-free graham cracker crust by MI-DEL, and a bourbon glaze and that is one killer pie.

Besides the fact that this dessert is absolutely delicious, it also ticks off a very important item off the list of that one person who will inevitably be joining your holiday festivities. It’s gluten-free. Yes, for purely medical reasons, I am that token person at my family holiday parties and usually it’s a bit of a drag. Luckily, MI-DEL has a line of gluten-free pie crusts that are fantastic. The brand’s pie crusts is 30 grams thicker than other brands, meaning more taste and flavor in each bite. Plus with a short, allergy-safe ingredient list, you can be confident that you’re doing right by your gluten-free holiday guests. But personally, the best thing about the MI-DEL Pie Crusts is that they taste exactly like their gluten-filled counterparts, so it doesn’t feel like you’re making a sacrifice.
