I don't think I'll ever make pie again! I love making it this way because it not only looks so, so pretty but it tastes better and is easier too! I have served this to guests a few times now since coming up with this new concept, and they are blown away at how tasty and beautiful it is. You can't compare pudding made from a vanilla bean to anything else, it is just so good. They are really expensive I know. I actually order them on ebay, I know it is strange, but you can get a lot more of them for your dollar!I started adding in health foods to my pie crust pastry like flax or linseeds, but found that some of them, like the psyllium husks, actually made the crust super flaky! I don't bake a pie without them now, and who can argue with added fiber?!Give it a try, trust me, your guests will not leave disappointed!
