Velvety Maple Yogurt Pie!

Refreshing Velvety Pie!

I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious this pie turned out. The pie cut perfectly into slices and the crust held together nicely. This pie is gluten free and has a taste and texture that everyone can appreciate. I love the fact that you can put this pie overnight in the refrigerator to get firm and then it is ready to serve the following day.

You can even make your own Greek yogurt here http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/homemade-greek-yogurt. This is the recipe I follow and use raw milk to make. It turns out perfect each time and is simple to make.

You could layer fresh sliced strawberries, peaches or raspberries to the top of this pie before serving. Edible flowers are a nice touch as well.
Very easy dessert to make!
