I made this pie for Easter. Since I don’t have a food processor I used my Magic Bullet blender. I didn’t think the pie would turn out very well as it really seemed like too much for my MB blender – but I was so wrong – THIS PIE WAS FANTASTIC! It is rich and decadent. I had it for breakfast with coffee the next day and it is still absolutely delicious. I would like to know the nutrient value and calories per slice, because I want to eat it every day but probably shouldn’t. (Oh, and using the magic bullet – I blended small batches of the crust at a time and then used my mixer on the filling as it was too much for the blender.)
Good news, I’m elated to hear that it worked so well without a food processor or high speed blender!
Oh, how I’d love a slice of that! It would make such a divine dessert for a girlfriends’ dinner!
Gorgeous photos! And I’m sure this tastes just as good as it looks 🙂
This is AWESOME! I need the whole thing in front of me right this second. Love, love, love it! It’s definitely going on the menu after this Whole 30 is over.
Hello from Italy 🙂 I fell in love with this Amazing tarte and I would love to try to make it. I have one question: what is maca powder and what I could substitute it with? Thanks a lot!
Hi Savina, it is a Peruvian tuber that is dried, powdered, and used quite a bit like an herb. Here are varieties of it – http://amzn.to/1KAuKhq – If you can’t find it in your local area, it can be omitted.
I love raw pies and this one looks absolutely delicious!
This looks absolutely AMAZING!! What a gorgeous tart and the photos are stunning!!
