Gluten Free Easy SunButter Pie on plates for the holidays

Gluten-Free Easy SunButter Pie Recipe

I have a really easy, really delicious, really presentable dessert to share with you. It’s one that will be great for the holidays! This Gluten-Free Easy SunButter Pie recipe is made with just a handful of ingredients and is not just gluten-free but nut-free and soy-free, too.

This pie is made nut-free thanks to the use of SunButter. You can use creamy or crunchy SunButter but I prefer creamy to give it a sort of French silk pie type of feel. If you want to make this even easier, substitute the heavy cream and the 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar with 8 ounces prepared whipped topping and then start with the step of beating the ¾ cup powdered sugar and the SunButter into the whipped cream. You can also make this recipe corn-free if you use powdered sugar that does not use cornstarch (many brands use cornstarch but there are some that do not).

I’ve also included the gluten-free cookie crumb pie crust recipe, which as you can see from the pie photos in this post, I used vanilla cookie crumbs, but you could turn this into a chocolatey version and use chocolate cookie crumbs.

Feel free to top this with a little more whipped cream or drizzle it with chocolate sauce. It’s versatile like that, which is how I love my desserts.
