Crustless Fudge Pie and Clark Kent

Some of you have called me the queen of flourless and crustless. I’ve chuckled, but that’s not a bad title at all in the gluten-free world and it’s also not far from the truth! Flourless and crustless are indeed part of my gfe approach. My dear friend, Tia, of Glugle Gluten Free, invited me to write a holiday guest post and I decided to share yet another of my crustless pie recipes—this time, Crustless Fudge Pie. You’ll have to read the post over at Tia’s to get the recipe and find out why I call this the Clark Kent of pies. (Christopher Reeve, you have not been forgotten.) If you are not familiar with Tia’s blog, do stick around for several minutes and check out her great recipes and wonderful writing. You won’t be disappointed!


Not just gf, but gfe!

    Yum. Looks like a brownie disguised as a pie!!!!

      Hi Ellen–Thank you, but unless you make seriously decadent tasting brownies, this pie is MUCH better than brownies! ;-)

    Holy flying red cape, Shirley! You have blown the doors off my reader stats. And my “day” doesn’t even switch over for 6 more hours. You are one popular gluten-free mama.

    Thanks for all the love and the guest post. BTW, it was really hard not to tease everyone about holding this recipe for ransom, since I got to see it first. ;)

    Let’s see if this comment makes it. ;)

      Hey Tia–You’re SO funny! I’m happy to send my readers your way though, dear. They will love you and Glugle Gluten Free! :-)

      I’m prone to a little bit of fun teasing myself, but if you remember, I was a little worried at first when I didn’t hear back from you. However, with your sense of humor, I should have known that you’d like my Superman scenario. ;-)

      Woohoo on your latest comments making it and not going into a black hole again! (Is that what they called it in Superman shows/movies? Can’t recall.)

    That looks absolutely amazing! Just saw the recipe over at Tia’s and I am ready to give this one a try, for sure! And Tia did such a nice introduction of you over at Glugle, Gluten-Free!

    • Shirley on November 19th, 2010 12:44 pm

      Hi there, Kim–Nice to see you out of the kitchen away from the Thanksgiving Ultimate Prep series for a moment! Although, I—and everyone else—is LOVING your series! :-)

      I think you’ll love this fudge pie. Make it when you have a full house … fair warning there. It’s one of those pies where you cut a little piece … and then another little piece … and, well, you get my drift. LOL

      Tia and all of you girls are way too generous with your words, but I appreciate each and every one of them more than you’ll ever know!

    ooh…the picture is enough to get me drooling! I can’t help wondering if I can adapt the recipe to make it Cheryl friendly. You can’t go wrong with a concept like that!

    • Shirley on November 19th, 2010 12:46 pm

      Oh, Cheryl, please “Cheryl-tize” this pie! Please, please. I’m still sharing “old” recipes and slowly, but surely, tweaking them to be healthier, but still indulgent. ;-) (Clearly, this one has not been tweaked yet.)

      We’re still on for the December meeting, right? Getting ready to send out email notice to all! Everyone is looking forward to your presentation. :-)


  5. Kay Guest on November 19th, 2010 2:33 pm

    Shirley, WOW AND DOUBLE WOW, I will make this Fudge Pie. Glad you mentioned in that other post about your PERFECT POUND CAKE, please, anyone reading these words… I have made this poundcake and Shirley has named this perfectly, it truly is perfect (even with a not-so-good cook like me making it). This Fudge Pie sounds easy and wonderful and I think I will make it to take to Thanksgiving with my family! Thanks as always! Kay

    • Shirley on November 19th, 2010 7:39 pm

      Hi Kay, my super enthusiastic friend! :-) Hope you like this one. Let me know if you think my Clark Kent analogy is a good one after you try it. ;-) And, many thanks for your over-the-top endorsement of my pound cake. I might end up making that tomorrow if Son comes home … he just loves it. It would be a great holiday gift, too.


  6. Beth on November 19th, 2010 10:08 pm

    Shirley. If I weren’t married (and you weren’t, for that matter) I would seriously consider marrying you over this fudge pie thing. Ha. Serisouly, though. I’m going to definitely try an adaptation of this soon. Yum!

    • Shirley on November 20th, 2010 11:25 pm

      Ha, ha, Beth! Everyone is flipping over this fudge pie … I swear we all have a serious chocolate thing going on. ;-) I will look forward to your version very much, dear! :-)

      Happy Saturday!

  7. Heidi on November 20th, 2010 2:53 am

    Squeeeeee!!! I love it Ms. Shirley, and yes, I love Tia’s writing, she is hysterical.


    • Shirley on November 20th, 2010 11:28 pm

      Heidi–LOL … happy to please you with my superhero post! :-) Who knows? Power Rangers might be next!

      Yes, Tia is a great writer and so funny! I almost said something about Tia’s skill at muffins, but decided against it based on the Betty White/SNL concerns she expressed recently. ;-)


  8. Ricki on November 22nd, 2010 5:59 pm

    Whoa, that looks amazing! I’m heading over to Tia’s to solve the mysteries. . . ! ;)

    • Shirley on November 22nd, 2010 9:53 pm

      Hey Ricki–I can’t believe it! One of YOUR comments was in Spam. Gosh, I hope that’s an anomaly and you’re not going to fight the curse that I’ve been fighting the last year or so. Fingers crossed!

      Now, to the serious stuff … fudge pie! It’s divine. I bet you could re-invent it to be ACD. :-)


    • Shirley on November 24th, 2010 10:12 pm

      Hi Ricki–Always love hearing praise from the dessert queen—thanks! :-)


      p.s. now I see that I’ve already replied … I thought I was experiencing deja vu. LOL

    I’ve always thought of you as the queen of flourless goodies and crustless pies! I’m awaiting the cookbook. I’ll zip over to Tia’s and check this out. It does look like a brownie pie (as Ellen says). Love the dollop of whip cream. Might have to try Alisa’s coconut whipped cream on this.

    Off to Tia’s.
    P.S. You’re starting to sound like me with this off-the-wall blog post title. Don’t go there. You’ll never be able to find your old posts. =)

    • Shirley on March 24th, 2011 10:11 pm

      Hey Melissa–This is actually an older post that I linked to on Facebook. I made it today using all coconut sugar and it was better than ever! Great to have a crowd to help eat it. Only one small piece for everyone. :-0

      Either way, semantics aside … brownie pie or fudge pie, it’s good! ;-) It’s great with either coconut whipped cream or ice cream.

      LOL on blog posts titles. Thank goodness for my Google search feature!
