I have this a high rating for three reasons. First, it was easy to make. Second, it was delicious. Third, it was gluten free. I love a good pie crust. Love it. But my daughter is sensitive to gluten and tries to avoid it. Lots of good substitute flours out there, but I think most will agree there is nothing quite like wheat! But this chocolate crust is a great substitute! Thank you for this recipe.

I love this pie, only thing i changed was to not use the almonds - not a favorite in our family but i did top it with a few raspberries - it was so delicious, husband has already had 2 large pieces - so easy and so pretty to serve
