Chocolate Silk Pie with Honey Whipped Cream!

December 22, 2011

Welcome to day 25 of Home for the Holidays- Gluten-free Style!!! This has been an amazing event and it’s not over yet! Z’s Cup of Tea made some tasty looking Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies yesterday and tomorrow, Shirley from Gluten-free Easily (and the host of this incredible event) will be posting something that I’m sure will rock your socks off. I feel confident about that because the chocolate silk pie with honey whipped cream that I’m making today are both her recipes. And they are both incredible.

This event has been huge: 25 different gluten-free bloggers each posting a recipe that say home and holidays to them. And not only that, but there are prizes to be won!

Today I’m giving away two books:

One copy of Healthier Without Wheat by Dr. Steven Wangen and two copies of Gluten-free Cupcakes by Elana Amsterdam


And there are also three pretty amazing grand prizes are still up for grabs:

All you have to do to enter to win any of these prizes is leave a comment here (tell me what you think of this episode and tell me what you’re making for the holidays!) or share this episode on twitter/follow me on twitter. If you tweet it and follow me make sure to leave a comment here letting me know! Winners will be selected no later than Saturday the 24th at noon. Don’t forget to give me your name and your email so that Shirley (our incredible host!) can let know if you’ve won!

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed! 

Now. Onto this chocolate silk pie business (which by the way I will be making for my family for the holidays).

Chocolate Silk Pie Ingredients


  • 2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil
  • 2/3 cup baking chocolate (I use Scharffen Berger’s 99% baking chocolate)
  • 6 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 cup Palm Shortening
  • pinch Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 2/3 cup full fat Coconut Milk
  • 1 tsp gluten-free Vanilla Extract
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Mix together the crust ingredients in a bowl. When thoroughly mixed, press into a pie pan. Put aside.
  • In a double boiler, start to melt the chocolate, honey and palm shortening. Stirring constantly.
  • Add in the salt, cocoa powder, eggs, coconut milk, and vanilla extract
  • Keep stirring until it’s smooth. It’ll be easiest if you use a whisk.
  • Pour into the crust
  • Verrrry carefully carry it to the oven
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes (or 44 minutes if you, like me, added a whole extra 3rd of coconut milk to the pie)
  • Let it cool for 20 to 30 minutes
  • EAT!!!!

Honey Whipped Cream


  • 1 cup Coconut Cream (the thick solid creamy stuff in the full fat can of coconut milk. I recommend getting the organic Thai Kitchen brand. It’s FULL of cream)
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • Add the chilled coconut cream to a chilled bowl and using chilled beaters, whip the coconut cream until it’s fluffy with soft peaks
  • While still whipping slowly add in the honey. Keep whipping until you get soft peaks again.
  • Put it back into the fridge until you’re ready to eat it.

This pie is incredible and the honey whipped cream is amazing. I have just started putting it in my tea as a dairy substitute. It’s creamy and sweet and delicious. Thank you Shirley from Gluten-Free Easily for this awesome recipe and for hosting Home for the Holidays…. Gluten-free Style!

Happy Holidays everyone.

About the Author ()

Lillian's Test Kitchen is an online cooking web series. The recipes in this series are always grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and cane sugar-free. The recipes are also all (at this point) paleo. Some are vegan. Some are raw. I use the best ingredients I can find (and afford). But Lillian's Test Kitchen is not so much about food as it is about the experience of trying something you have never tried before and then finding the joy, comedy and laughter in those small moments in spite of and also often, because of dietary restrictions. My goal is to inspire others to take their health into their own hands and make their own food.

    I loved the video! I can’t wait to get some chocolate so that I can make it. I will probably make it to share with some of my friends who are also on strict diets (I can not eat sugar, gluten, or large amounts of caffeine).

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! rachelkeeth@gmail,com

  2. Denise M says:

    I really like the video especially about how to make your own double boiler. I am making a gluten free “oreo” cheesecake this holiday

  3. That looks so yummy. I am not cooking for Christmas because we are going out of town. Yeah!! But for New Years I’m going to try cinnamon rolls for the first time.

  4. Stephanie says:

    Thanks for the recipe and giveaway! It looks great! I’ve already made several desserts for the holidays — cranberry pecan cookies with coconut/almond/cashew flours, chocolate peanut butter cups, and frozen raspberry cheesecake cups. I’m also going to attempt a yummy peanut butter pie with double chocolate crust from The Spunky Coconut! –

  5. The video is great. This year I have made quite a few things, peanut butter fudge, cream cheese cut out cookies, gingerbread cookies, my first successful attempt at divinity. I have a pecan pie left to make.

  6. Heather R. says:

    This looks great, I love that it is also grain-free so I can eat it. I am still not quite sure what I am making yet but this pie may make an appearance! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Amy in Pa says:

    Great video! It is so helpful to be able to SEE the process rather than just read the directions, because I’m still learning how to cook with these new-to-me allergen-free ingredients (which often require very different cooking techniques than their counterparts). So thanks for posting the video!

    I am definitely making the Honey Whipped Cream to go on my chai tea latte this Christmas!!

    • lillian says:

      That’s what I’ve been putting the Honey Whipped Cream into lately too!! It’s super delicious. Enjoy!

  8. SherriS. says:

    You were cracking me up carrying that very full pie to the oven! I made this right after I saw it on Shirley’s blog…delish!

    I’m going to my sister’s for our meal…I just made some cookies for me to enjoy!

  9. Christa says:

    That looks delicious! I can’t have honey, but I bet that I could substitute agave and coconut sugar or stevia and find a good balance. I hope they need another dessert at the family gathering. :) I share your frustration in finding chocolate that you don’t have to sweeten yourself. I think I’ll be making some gluten-free snickerdoodles today. So far this holiday season, I have made pumpkin dessert, cranberry-apple relish and gluten-free sugar cookies (for family members who do eat sugar). I’ve also made some lovely sugar-free treats for me…my favorites so far have been the frozen chocolate cashew pie squares.

  10. Bonnie says:

    I LOVED your video. I am new to being GF and sites like yours help ease the stress that comes from trying to figure out how to fit in at holiday parties. Thank you!

  11. KarenO says:

    Hi Lillian…I enjoyed this video! I’m wondering if I could substitute Raw Agave Nectar for the honey? Maybe then I wouldn’t need to use grapeseed oil because the Agave is very liquidy. Just a thought.

    Oh and by the way, I’d LOVE to win Elana’s cupcake book! Or the Vitamix! Or the shopping spree! Or the Caveman Cookies! LOL Actually, I’d be thrilled with anything at all!

    • lillian says:

      Probably. I’ve made an almond crust with agave before, but I usually still add grapeseed oil. but it all depends how sweet you want your crust to be. Give it a try! And thanks!

  12. Sharon S says:

    Great video! Just finished making treat boxes of homemade dipped chocolates for kids teachers, bus drivers, and other great people in the community. I make them all gluten free, but don’t even tell most of the people, and they never know!!

  13. Kristine says:

    Great video, ..and yummy!!!

    I’m making peanut butter chocolate chip goodness!

  14. Andrea M says:

    I like this episode! for the holidays I am making my husband’s favorite cookies, white chocolate chip date cookies and my dad some cookies – brown sugar pecan :)

  15. Kel says:

    How fun!

    I am making some dairy and gluten free ice cream, deviled eggs, a dairy free cream cheese shrimp dip, and gluten free stuffing!

  16. seeks says:

    Sounds amazing! Though I can’t have honey, I’ll be trying to think of ways to make this recipe me-safe all around. 😀 I’ve already made some ginger snaps from Elana’s recipe (with substitutions for the honey) and plan on making a me-safe cinnamon roll cake recently posted through this very event. :) That’s in addition to all the food I’m making that I can’t eat. 😉

  17. Sheila says:

    I liked your video. I wonder if the coconut cream would work in my isi cream whipper? I am making a vegetable tian and the sweet potatoes for Christmas dinner. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  18. Joanie H says:

    Such a FUN video! I loved watching the process, listening to the banter between you and your friend that was running the video camera and seeing the bamboo in those cute vases. The taste test at the end was awesome! I have so many wonderful new recipes to try, but I’m doing gfdf spritz cookies, hazelnut gingerbread cookies and sugar cookies for sure!

  19. Adria says:

    The video wouldn’t load for me :o( But the honey whipped coconut cream sounds good. I am going to try to make dairy free egg nog this year. Hopefully it will taste good!

  20. vanessa says:

    I loved the video. This year I am making pomegranate-chocolate clusters.

  21. Mary S says:

    I loved the video. All of your videos are fun to watch. I will be making all kinds of Christmas cookies this holiday seson.

  22. cozziegirl says:

    I made a chocolate silk pie to die for before I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. …cannot wait to try this recipe!!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

  23. That pie looks amazing! For the family holiday party, they’re having a pasta bar for dinner so I am planning on making my own gluten free pasta and sauce with sausage, peppers and onions. For dessert…. I’m still trying to figure that one out. I was thinking of making some cupcakes or ice cream or pudding…

  24. Anne says:

    Wow – can’t wait to make this. How long does the cream last in the fridge? I’m making something from this blogger event, but haven’t been able to decide which one yet!

    • lillian says:

      it’ll last at least a week in the fridge. I don’t know if it’ll last any longer only because I never have any left after a week. :)

  25. Suzanne H says:

    Thanks so much for the video and the recipe. It looks delicious! I’m avoiding sweeteners and chocolate right now, but I’ll definitely save this to make someday!

  26. Suzanne H says:

    I shared on Twitter.

  27. Suzanne H says:

    I’m following you on Twitter – Ducktorwho82

  28. Stephanie says:

    I’m always on the lookout for soy free, dairy free, gluten free, cane sugar free, chocolate free, yeast free recipes. I never knew your site, but will be back!

    Tomorrow night is our first latke party–that’ll be a great holiday moment!

  29. amanda says:

    OMG – I cannot wait to try this one. Looks amazing!!

  30. Sharon says:

    Loved the video! I’m baking date nut breads and fudge for Christmas.

  31. Sharon says:

    I tweeted this post.

  32. Randi says:

    Looks delicious!!

  33. Cindy W. says:

    Great video and recipe. I really want to make this pie. Thank you for the giveaway!

  34. Shelly R says:

    This video was awesome! Love that you don’t edit your mistakes, makes me feel kinda normal! :) I would be making this pie for Christmas if I could eat chocolate, definitely going to incorporate the honey whipped cream. I will be making lots of cookies! The baking begins today!

  35. kelly says:

    Love the video and LOVE a grain free recipe! My hope is that someday in the not too distant future I’ll be able to eat eggs again. Ahhhh chocolate is such a wonderful comfort food. I’ve been busy with lots of cookies this week.

  36. Arleen says:

    This looks so yummy! This is destined to be my contribution to Christmas dinner!

  37. Rachel Blom says:

    Love chocolate silk pie. I’m not sure what I’m making for Christmas yet. Gonna hash out ideas w/my kiddos tonight and go shopping for food tomorrow.

  38. Sarah C says:

    Your videos look super fun!
    You are absolutely hilarious! I also like that you do things for the first time… makes those of us who also do a recipe for the first know that … we aren’t the only ones who mess up or ask a million questions while making it!
    Actually, today I am making ice cream sandwiches for my brother-in-law. I got him an ice cream sandwich maker, and decided that I had to make him some sandwiches to go with it. So I made my g-f brownies and him some regular brownies, soon I will be making some ice cream, then I will assemble them!!

  39. Amani says:

    The episode is cute; you and your friend are hilarious! :)

    I don’t know if I’ll make anything, but if I do, I might try one of the recipes from these blogs, esp. ones with ingredients I already have. :)

    P.S. I don’t know about Thai Kitchen but Native forest brand coconut milk is BPA free. :)

    • lillian says:

      Oooh! Thanks. I’ll look into it. I’ll have to order it, I never see that brand at the store… How’s the coconut cream content?

  40. Amani says:

    I don’t have twitter, but I shared on facebook! :)

  41. Jacqui says:

    This looks yummy! I am making a broccoli salad, and grilled potato salad to take for Christmas dinner… and some kind of cheese cake.

  42. Amy Nico says:

    Hi Lillian! I tweeted you! I’m so excited to find you and that your grain free too! I’ve been trying really hard to stick to my new diet plan. My hubby and I want to have babies! Hope you have a merry Christmas and thanks for the awesome Chocolate Silk Pie Video. It looks so yummy and can’t wait to try it! Blessings! ~ Amy

  43. Monique says:

    Thanks so much for this video! I’ve been having issues finding a decent grain free pie crust. I half love you, half hate you for this silk pie recipe!

  44. julie says:

    Loved the video, I love to see the step by step process.
    This holiday I am making beginner stuff–brownies and cookies. I am new to gf so I have to start somewhere!

  45. Laurel says:

    The video is great – how could it not be? Chocolate Silk Pie. Yah. Baking for the holidays: layered peppermint brownies; cherry pie; chewy ginger molasses cookies; chocolate chip cookies; pecan sandies; canded nuts; spiced nuts; lemon bars and it’s only Thursday. Phew!

  46. Amanda says:

    That looks wonderful – great episode! I’m planning on making gingerbread men and pecan tassies soon – yum!!

  47. Shaina says:

    LOVED the video! It’s so much more helpful to actually see the recipe in process…and I loved the scraping of the plate at the end :) This will definitely be added to my list of recipes to try! I’ll be making fudge, cookies, and quite possibly this pie 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  48. Christie B. says:

    I loved watching your video. It was like being in the kitchen with a friend (except not getting to taste), and you obviously had a lot of fun. I also enjoyed seeing your mistakes, and how you developed your own version of the recipe. It actually looked a lot like my method of cooking and adapting recipes. I’ve never seen your blog before (that’s the beauty of this Home for the Holidays event – learning about bloggers we new about before). I’m glad I found it.

    The boys and I are making thumbprint cookies, and persimmon pudding (a steamed pudding, like the English make this time of year). We were given some lovely pecans, so I will need to think of something really yummy to do with those, too. We will make cranberry coffee-cake for Christmas morning, and we’re making chai tea, with coconut milk. All of this is grain-free and dairy-free, and sweetened with honey and stevia.

  49. Shaina says:

    I don’t do twitter but shared on Facebook hoping that will count! :)

  50. AJ says:

    Great video. I am making coffee cake for the holidays. Yum!

  51. Elise S says:

    Liked your vid, Definitely worth all that hard work to eat the finished pie! My fave part of the holidays is the pumpkin pie…a must have at our table!

  52. Erin says:

    I loved the video, Cooking with almond flour is my favourite, so easy. One item on our Christmas menu is apricot balls, process a handful of almonds and apricots into small chunks and roll in coconut. Then harden in the fridge, simple:)

  53. Janet Lewis says:

    The video was delightful and helpful. Making this pie for Christmas. Not sure of menu for Christmas.

  54. yes please!! I am drooling, this looks so good! I am making some toffee right now…but this pie might have to make it on the menu for xmas!

  55. Isabel says:

    You seem to have such fun filming these! And improvising as you go – I would have freaked out at the first ‘uh oh’ moment with the honey. Cooking mistakes and easily anxious people do not get along well.

    Current plants are to make a metric boatload of truffles for christmas presents (and hope that cashew cream works), and then about a dozen nut butters.
    (And it was good to see how a home made double boiler works)

    (Also, I wasn’t sure if we were to leave our email separately as well, but just in case:

  56. jennifer says:

    i can’t wait to make the pie!!! i don’t do tofu and adore coconut anything. by the way, have u tried the coconut egg nog? to die for!!!!!!! thank you,
    Jennifer Baldwin

  57. Brandae says:

    I love all your videos. :) I was so glad to see you have trouble (not to be mean) with the crust prep in the pan and then adding some oil since I had the EXACT problem. Makes me feel better about my own baking to see others have similar struggles.

    Anyway, I am baking as much as possible – nearly daily. It’s been a blast!

  58. Jeanene says:


    That chocolate silk pie looked incredibly amazing! I will defintely make that sometime!
    For Christmas I am baking a BD cake for Jesus! :)

  59. Jeanene says:

    I just tweeted about your give-a-way! I would love to win any of those items!

  60. Jeanene says:

    I am now following you on Twitter.

    Merry Christmas to U!

  61. Christine says:

    You are so cute! I absolutely love your apron! The pie looks amazing as well! :)

  62. tanya ci says:

    Tweeted! Hopalong15

  63. tanya ci says:

    Watching the video mostly made me hungry for chocolate pie! Mmm! And the whipped cream…sounds delish!

  64. Megan R says:

    I loved this episode! it looks delicious! I will have to substitute the honey(which I am allergic too).. but I will try this! :) my mom and I will be baking grandmas homemade cheesecake! GF/DF! :)I we are excited! thank you for this opportunity!

  65. Sharmista says:

    Love the video! This recipe looks ah-mazing! Thanks for sharing!

    I’m making a grain-free version of my famous orange spice cookies!

  66. Renee Ross says:

    Loved it! I am so excited to find this blog. My poor 15 year old daughter has been gluten free since June and it’s nice to find her yummy treats to make. Thank you!

  67. The video was great! I’m not making anything this year because we are going to a friend’s house for Christmas dinner :)

  68. Love this recipe! Thanks for sharing! I’m going to try to make this and a gingerbread cake.

  69. it is SO great to see gluten free options like this!!! the holidays can be so discouraging when it comes to eating or participating in get-togethers involving food. so often it seems that we “settle” for a less tasty version of a good dish…
    I am so looking forward to trying options like this pie.
    please keep great stuff like this coming!!

  70. Kat Crowson says:

    Oooohhh this is amazing! Love how fun you make your video! :) I’m totally going to be making this pie! With 2 gfcf kids…goodies are a special happening at our house! Thanks for sharing this in such a fun way!

  71. Sharon says:

    What a fun video. I like how you are able to adjust ingredients for your needs. I want to make the striped Meringue Christmas Stars from Gluten-free Gigi.

  72. Jenn says:

    I loved the video. I have made several pies and I am really excited to make this one, I especially cant wait to try they whip cream out :)

  73. You are awesome, my dear! Thank you so much for participating in our Home for the Holidays … Gluten-Free Style event! I am honored that you chose to adapt my pie and enjoyed it so. :-) Love the part at the end where you’re so happy. 😉


  74. Linda bull says:

    Great video. Awesome recipe! Super excited about the crust and whipped cream. I’m making plumb thumbprint cookies, cake pops, chocolate peppermint bark and eggnog french toast for breakfast…all gf of course!

  75. D says:

    I have been looking for a press in crust, chocolate pie for Christmas…….ty ty and ty again!!!
    Happy Holidays

  76. D says:

    I’ve been looking for a press crust with a chocolate filling! Ty, ty and ty again
    Happy Holidays

  77. D says:

    ty ty ty! I’ve been looking for a press in crust with a chocolate filling.

  78. Sarah says:

    That pie looks absolutely amazing! Seems perfect for our family Christmas get together, can’t wait to try it out, thanks Lillian for another great video :)

  79. Sarah says:

    Pat-in crust? I think that was a punch-in crust! Love it. Somehow I missed that you were one of the GF Home for the Holidays bloggers, so excited for you. I feel like I’ve been with you since the beginning. 😉 I haven’t even thought about what to bake for Christmas, but pie might make it on the list! Or at least the whipped topping, mmmmm.

  80. Episode was cute but now I am hungry! Making glazed mixed nuts tomorrow!

  81. Rachel says:

    this is making me hungry all over again! I want it now!

  82. Ruth says:

    Great video! I will be making gingerbread cookies for the holidays. I think I saw a similar coconut whipped cream on marks daily apple and I’ve been curious about it since then. I definitely want to make this at some point! Although I think almond flour hasn’t agreed with me lately so maybe I’ll use some other combination for the crust.

  83. Rachel says:

    I just tweeted!

  84. Looks good! I haven’t finalized the menu yet for Christmas. I need to do that!

  85. Rebecca A. says:

    Thanks for doing the video it really helps to see someone else do it. I’m still working on what we are eating for Christmas dinner so this may go on the list.

  86. Rachel says:

    This pie looks amazing! What a great episode. I think this weekend merits making some pumpkin bread.

  87. heather says:

    The pie looks so amazing, thank you! I plan to make some fudge tomorrow to share with our neighbors. Merry Merry!

  88. becka says:

    We’ll be making SO MUCH FOOD! but the one treat i’m really excited about is the grain free cinnamon rolls we’ll be doing for Christmas morning!! yaaaaaaaaay!

  89. This was my first time on your website and I had so much fun watching your video!! Not to mention I am totally going to try this recipe. Look out Baker’s Square!! Thanks for this :)

  90. Chelsea says:

    cute video! Still not sure what Im making, its going to be a last minute decision I think!

  91. Arlee says:

    Your video cracked me up! But in a good way =) Now,I am definately going to make this for Christmas! I would LOVE to win Elana’s cookbook =)

  92. Kristen M. says:

    I’ll be making ham as the main course. I still have to create my menu and go shopping.

  93. Aly says:

    great episode! I made butternut squash-kas (latkes)

  94. I am baking this tomorrow! So excited! =)

  95. Julie says:

    This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try the honey whipped cream. My dad’s a beekeeper so I get a regular supply of honey and I can’t believe I haven’t thought to make it into a whipped cream before.

    I have been making several types of cookies over the past few days and I have still more to do. I also have a couple batches of grain free granola to make that I’m going to be giving as gifts.

  96. alena m says:

    Not sure what we r making yet… I think meatloaf tomorrow, and maybe salmon on Christmas eve… Will see…

  97. alisa joy says:

    oh. my. goodness. i know one thing i’m making for the holidays…. HONEY SWEETENED DAIRY-FREE WHIPPED CREAM! love it! thank you for taking a two-dimensional, written recipe and bringing it to life. i bet shirley is proud!

  98. Ivy Shea says:

    I’m allergic to grapeseed oil and coconut along with having Celiacs.. Wondering what would be a better subs.

  99. kate says:

    this looks ridiculously delicious. I wonder what excuse I can come up with to make this for myself!

  100. Stephanie says:

    Am making the whipped cream today! Can’t wait!!!!!

  101. Alison Pence says:

    This looks amazing!! I am bringing dessert to Christmas Eve and this is it! Can’t wait to try it.

  102. Sarah P says:

    First episode of yours I’ve watched – love your enthusiasm! I will be baking some blueberry scones this weekend with garbanzo flour.

  103. Gaye says:

    Great episode! It makes me so excited to think about making this pie…today! I’ve still got a lot of baking to do; our main thing is cheesecake, which I’m making for each family outing we’re attending.

  104. Megan H says:

    This recipe looks so good; thanks for sharing! :)

  105. Christine B says:

    This looks delicious! I’m making fudge to take to the in-laws for Christmas brunch.

  106. Well this recipe sounds GREAT! If I wasn’t leaving for HOME today, I’d most likely whip it up. My husband and I are hitting the road to be with our families this Christmas/Hanukkah and I am MOST excited to see them! I have recently begun working outside the home and even still, have been on a big baking spree the last few weeks. I’ve made a lot of new items with coconut flour and they’ve been highly successful!

  107. Annette says:

    Thank you for the video!!

    I made gluten free, vegan gingerbread cookies for the kids last night!

  108. Thanks for all the great recipes. The book about Wheat sounds really good. I am having so many stomach problems. Anxious to try ways to help.

    Merry Christmas

  109. Shari says:

    I wanted to make a GF pie for the Holidays and this looks like just the thing for me. I also attempted homemade mayo for the first time today (I’m allergic to soy) using a local organic egg. Has anyone ever tried making mayo without eggs, maybe using EnerG egg substitute? Just curious.

  110. Sarah M says:

    Love the video as always (you’re always so hilarious!). I’ve seen a lot of grain-free cinnamon roll/monkey bread-type recipes floating around lately. I gotta try that out for myself. It’s like the final frontier of grain-free baking.

  111. Venessa says:

    Thats a great episode. Thanks for the ideas. I am not planning on cooking, but will be baking gluten free pumpkin pie with almond crust. Thanks for this giveaway! :-)

  112. Paula says:

    Great episode. I’ve been making loads of cookies, and am still planning on making pumpkin bars for Christmas.

  113. Julia says:

    Love this episode! I will be making spritz cookies and pumpkin bread.

  114. Christine says:

    Yum, love chocolate silk pie, cant wait to try this one out!!

  115. Jennifer C says:

    Great episode. I’m not making pie this year, but it looks good. I’m making gluten-free cookies and cake balls for our holiday dinner with the family.

  116. Andi says:

    This was so fun to watch! (and looks totally yummy!) I made the pomegranate chocolate drops from an earlier listing in this event – and they were a huge hit at our family gathering, but I think I will have to whip this up for our dessert :}

  117. Andi says:

    I liked you on facebook, :)

  118. Andi says:

    I also shared this fun video!

  119. lillian says:

    thanks so much Andi!!

  120. cheryl says:

    crazy as it sounds, I haven’t figured out what I’m going to make quite yet. somehow I think i’m running out of time…

  121. Shelby says:

    The video was great! I love the humor and it makes me glad to know that I am not the only one who makes mistakes when following recipes! The chocolate pie looked really yummy, too. :) For the holidays, I will be making Ginger Lemon Girl’s Maple Oat (GF) bread and probably some sort of pumpkin dessert, like Elana’s Pumpkin bars (which I add a crumble topping to) or gingerbread apple crisp. I’m still waiting to hear what else is needed that I can make. I’m sure I will be adding more dishes to the list! Merry Christmas!

    Loved the great sense of humor and adaptations while making a new gluten free recipe for the first time. Very refreshing attitude. I’ve been there but maybe not a cheerful since I was not on camera. I am making Boston Cream Pie, salad, and lasagne. I would like either book since I’m celiac.

  123. Laurie says:

    the video is great! Can’t wait to try the pie out for New Years…GF & DF. Thanks for sharing!

  124. Janis S. says:

    OOH, thanks for the wonderful recipe and the great giveaways.

  125. Marissa W says:

    Great video!
    I rather like seeing the process rather than simply reading the instructions :)
    It’s like being in your kitchen. Sneak peek!
    Thank you!
    We decided to forego the massive meal as we had that at thanksgiving. So we are doing a simple roast and salad. YUM! :)

  126. MaryAnna says:

    Nice video, very refreshing to see a different take on a gluten free blog! Tomorrow I will be making Soft Molasses Cookies from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen. I’m just getting over a stomach bug so I haven’t had much interest the past few days!

  127. Stephanie B says:

    Oh Yum! Honey Whipped Cream–I even have a can of Thai Full fat Coconut milk. Gotta try this out ASAP! Thanks!!

    It’s my first visit to your blog, I stumbled up on through Gigi’s blog and I’m SO glad I did! We are gf, sugar, and soy free. That’s a combo you don’t commonly find, so I was super excited when I saw the headline to your blog. And then I saw that you were giving away a Vitamix blender??!! OMG, you really ARE my hero!!!

    I REALLY enjoyed the episode. Why? Because it was real people, in a real kitchen, facing real problems (like the pie not being done on the first check). I love that these things were included and weren’t edited out. And the final product looked decadent.

    What I’m making this year? One of my favorite gf recipes I made for Christmas are 2 of Betsy’s pumpkin logs over at GF Betsy blog. They were SO yummy (we had one family Christmas last week). I substituted granulated palm sugar in the recipe and they are delicious….you can’t tell them apart from their gluten counterpart. Here’s the link if anyone wants to give it a go: I love that the final product made me look like I knew what I was doing. 😉

  129. Christy M says:

    I tweeted the giveaway and am now following you on twitter as well. Super excited!

  130. Elisa says:

    Haha, so fun to jump into your kitchen! I’m so happy to find your blog. I’ve been having so much fun putting together this years menu for my family… even though it’s my first holiday season without gluten, cane sugar or dairy. This year it’s going to be macadamia nut crusted cod with mango salsa, artichokes w balsamic glaze, coconut rice pilaf and salad with herb dressing. And the best part of it all triple berry pie with coconut honey whip cream (just added after watching your video!), Hazelnut gingerbread cut out cookies (from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen) and homemade chai. Happy Holidays!

  131. Joy says:

    Love the video! It’s good to know that food bloggers (like you) are real people and go with the flow in the kitchen, making do with unforseen circumstances. :) I’ll be making a fruit and nut tray and mashed potatos for Christmas. Two days later I’ll be making an allergen-free birthday cake for my little gal. It’ll be an experiment, so wish me luck!

  132. pat says:

    This looks wonderful! Thanks for posting the video. Tomorrow I’m making cinnamon rolls for Christmas breakfast.

  133. Gail says:

    Love to watch your videos. The two of you make baking fun! I plan to make Ali’s cinnamon buns for Christmas morning and Hallie’s Cranberry and Cashew cream tart for our family gathering at Christmas dinner. After hearing and seeing the preparation of this Chocolate Silk Pie this will definitely be made over Christmas and many other recipes from this Home for the Holidays Event will be part of the new year. So many recipes and not enough days to bake them right now.

    Thanks for the giveaways and Merry Christmas.

  134. Gail says:

    I’m not in charge of desserts, or else I would definitely make this pie! I’ll be making the roast beef this year.

  139. Andrew says:

    I shared on facebook.

  140. Sarah Louise says:

    Thanks for the demonstration; I like that you are not shy about making adjustments to your technique on camera :) Traditionally, we make tamales for the holiday. This year I am trying rice masa in lieu of corn. Thanks for the giveaway!

  141. This is absolutely amazing. I love your videos. This year, I am making GFCF pumpkin cookies and meringues. Might try Elana’s paleo fruitcake. Love fruitcake.

  142. Vicki says:

    Loved the video. In fact, I made this twice today. The first time my shortening was apparently bad:( The second time it turned out great!
    I am also making a second batch of the Primal Palate chocolate chip cookies. My kds inhaled the first batch in like 24 hours so now I have to make more so Santa can get a cookie!

  143. Marykay says:

    Great video! This pie looks delicious and not too complicated! I have all the ingredients on hand so I think I’ll make it tomorrow! I will also be making cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning.

  144. Karol says:

    That looks amazing. I think the melted chocolate actually made me drool :)
