#6: Avocado Pie

WHY THIS PIE?

This week’s pie came totally out of the blue… er… green.  In the search for my next experiment, I came across this extremely simple yet intriguing recipe.  Avocado Pie.  Wait… avocado pie?  Suspending all further judgement, I decided to give it a shot.

how did it go?

This was a breeze to make.  With only 4 ingredients, it took me all of about 5 minutes (aside from the crust).   After assembling, I let it set in the refrigerator over night, which seemed to allow for a nice solid filling.

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH

This pie tastes almost nothing like an avocado.  It more resembles a lemon bar than anything else.  For a stronger avocado flavor go a little light on the lemon, and possibly toss in another avocado.   Overall, even the most non-adventurous of my tasting crew enjoyed this one.

See FoodNetwork.com for another spin on this tasty recipe.

  1. Avocado pie! If you hadn’t told me it tasted good and lord knows I believe everything you say (wink), I would not have touched this one. But boy was it yummy! Really loved the smooth lemony filling with the hint of avocado in it. Great pie Aly!
