Raw Cherry Pie With Macadamia Crust

20 mins (prep 20)
6 ingredients
1 servings
Recently I purchased a bag of Irish Moss, which is a raw sea veggie that is used as a thickening agent. This pie was quite a challenge because I've never done anything like this before. I got my Irish Moss at my local cooperative. I ended up using my 7" spring form pan and halved the recipe because both my DH and I find these types of desserts very dense and far too much for two people. You will need 29 1/2 ounces of pitted cherries divided in this recipe. One part for the sauce and one part so you will have some chunks in the pie. Weigh the pitted cherries instead of measuring them in a cup, this will make an accurate measurement. If you don't choose to do the lattice top you will only need 2 1/4 cups of macadamia nuts. Note I didn't include the soaking and cleaning time for the Irish Moss. Nor did I include the setting up time for the pie. This recipe can be found in Sweet Gratitude, a raw dessert book.
