**PLEASE NOTE: While Wholly Wholesome DID provide me with these products to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**
Welcome to August, everyone! Can you even believe it?! Before you know it we’ll all be enjoying pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING!
But before that happens, let’s celebrate! In fact, let’s celebrate…the peach.
Why the peach, you ask? Did you know that August is National Peach Month? It IS! And the BEST part about that news is that Wholly Wholesome is doing a fantastic contest in celebration!
Now, if you haven’t heard of Wholly Wholesome, no worries, let me fill you in. Wholly Wholesome’s baked goods are not only delicious, they are healthy indulgences. Wholly Wholesome can be found in the frozen food aisle in many major retailers in your area. The brand is also certified Kosher and Yoshon, and offers gluten free products within its robust line of ready to bake pies, ready to bake cakes, pizza dough balls and a variety of other healthy baked goods. In 2014, Wholly Wholesome opened a dedicated gluten free and allergen free bake house facility to produce Wholly Gluten Free products including the Gluten Free Pizza Dough Ball and Gluten Free Pie Shell.
You KNOW that was the part that I was totally excited about, right? Hey, if it’s gluten-free, it’s for ME!
So, in thinking of some fun I could have with Wholly Wholesome for National Peach Month, what else did I come up with but PIE. OH. PIE. Who doesn’t love pie? (If YOU don’t love pie, then we can’t be friends.) I don’t mind if I do. But you know what’s hard for me when it comes to pie? Who makes a gluten-free pie? I mean, really. Pie crusts are a bit of an art, and I have never found a ready-made gluten-free pie crust. UNTIL NOW.
Beautiful, is it not! Oh boy!
Yeah yeah yeah, they also have these…
I grabbed a Whole Wheat version, too…because that’s something else I’ve never seen ready-made!
This is exciting stuff, y’all! So, I figured I would make one type of Peach Pie with the gluten-free shell, and another type with the whole wheat! I decided on a Peach Pie with Almond Crumble (originally found over at Love Grows Wild – visit Liz if you aren’t a regular over there yet – she’s fabulous!) and a Peaches & Cream Pie that I’ve had the recipe to for years…but I had never tried it! (It was posted by the fabulous
I followed Liz’s recipe for the Peach Pie with Almond Crumble – you can find it by CLICKING HERE. Here’s how mine turned out:
Whatcha think? I couldn’t eat this one due to it not being gluten-free, but my testers LOVED it! Yes, they could tell that the crust was whole-wheat, but it didn’t negative effect the taste of the pie for anyone, and they would try the whole-wheat crust again in other desserts! Woot woot!
Now, on to the Gluten-Free Peaches & Cream Pie!
- 1 Wholly Wholesome Gluten-Free Pie Shell
- 3/4 cup gluten-free flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 3-ounce package gluten-free non-instant vanilla pudding mix
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 29-ounce can sliced peaches in syrup, drained and syrup reserved
- 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and pudding mix. Mix in butter, egg and milk. Beat for 2 minutes. Pour mixture over baked pie crust. Arrange the peach slices on top of the pudding mixture.
- In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons reserved peach syrup. Beat for 2 minutes. Spoon mixture over peaches to within 1 inch of pan edge. Mix together 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and sprinkle over top.
- Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown. Chill before serving.
Whatcha think about THIS one? It was definitely CREAMY, as you can see! A nice combination of flavors, too! This really is the perfect summer pie, as far as I’m concerned! And my testers stated that they could not even tell that the gluten-free crust was gluten-free! Which is a win in my book!
Now, I know we all like pie, but don’t forget that Wholly Wholesome also carries pie crusts, pie dough, cookie dough, cakes, ready-made pies, waffles and even pizza dough!
