Gluten Free Chocolate Whiskey Cream Pie

Gluten Free Chocolate Whiskey Cream Pie Recipe

I have no idea where the year went but Thanksgiving is right around the corner! And that means turkey, stuffing, gravy, and PIE!

While I am a big fan of pumpkin and pecan pie, I always like to include something with chocolate to my holiday dessert table. This year it is Gluten Free Chocolate Whiskey Cream Pie.

There’s something about this pie that makes me swoon. Maybe it’s the deep rich chocolate flavor, maybe it’s the little bit of boozy goodness that just sort of hits you ever so gently, or maybe it’s because there is a sort of masculine quality about this pie.

I don’t really want to spend too much time trying to analyze the situation – I would much prefer to just eat some more pie!

Recipe notes: I used Kinnikinnick’s chocolate cookie crumbs for the crust, if you have trouble finding them in your local store go online or simply crush up about 2 cups of their Chocolate KinniKritter Animal Cookies into crumbs or you can certainly use gluten free graham style cracker crumbs instead. Use good quality chocolate chips – don’t buy the less expensive store brands as they contain wax and fillers. Whiskey is distilled and according to experts distilled liquors are all gluten free. Admittedly, this is a grown up pie for grown up palates!

    Sounds delicious BUT whiskey has gluten in it. Celiacs have to be careful about what alcohol they drink or cook with.

      Hi Bea, there seems to be some controversy about distilled alcohol and gluten. According to the leading experts all distilled alcohol is free of gluten but having said that – if you react to something, don’t use it! This is a perfectly lovely pie without the whiskey. Enjoy.

    can this be made 2-3 days in advance and it still be great? non-soggy crust? I can keep the whipped cream separate until time to serve.

      I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s likely it won’t be as tasty, or crispy.

    I just made this pie and it is delicious! My only thought is maybe the egg mixture should be tempered with the chocolate before adding all of it. I have a lot of cooked egg so it’s kind of lumpy. It doesn’t affect the taste but I think it’s supposed to be smooth. Love the bourbon in it, it’s a very sexy pie!
