This Pie Is Nuts!

While vending for my company, Squish Marshmallows, I get to meet some great vendors and try their products. One of them was This Pie Is Nuts!, currently at the Bryant Park Holiday Market.

These signature, square pies, are exactly what the title states, all made out of nuts. Using natural ingredients, these paleo, vegan, and gluten free pies are made mainly with nuts in the crust and pie filling itself.

I got the Key Lime Pie (Raw Cashews, Almonds, Pure Maple Syrup, 100% Key Lime Juice, Dates, Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, Thompson Seedless Raisins, Organic Kudzu Root, Agar Agar, Pure Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt).

This is a unique and great spin on the traditional key lime pie. The crust, unlike the common graham cracker crust, has great texture, chew and flavor from both the nuts and dates, giving it a fresh, natural taste. The pie filling has a rich, and creamy texture with the zing and tartness from the lime juice, finished with a mild nuttiness. Now, I have a massive sweet tooth and love sweet things, but, I also really enjoy desserts that aren’t as sweet and have a natural, mild sweetness that doesn’t give you a stomach ache. This pie is just that, substantial, naturally sweet, and tasty. 

The Shorts:
Name: This Pie Is Nuts!
Location: Bryant Park Holiday Market, NYC (Until January 4th, 2015)
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Yes, there are staple flavors, along with some seasonal, something for every palate. 
Would I recommend it? Yes, as long as you don’t have a nut allergy, of course, it’s a great dessert if you’re gluten free, or just enjoy a nutritious dessert without the guilt.
