This gluten-free s’mores pie is perfect for a Memorial Day or 4th of July. It is a super easy recipe that only needs 7 minutes of baking time for the graham cracker crust. I personally prefer a summer dessert that doesn’t heat up the kitchen too much and this one is perfect. If you prefer a traditional pie crust, here is my recipe for gluten-free pie crust.
Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust
This 3-ingredient pie crust is so easy that you may never want to go back to rolling out pie dough again. Just graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar (and a pinch of salt if you like). You can also substitute salty crackers for the graham cracker crumbs which makes for an AMAZING sweet and salty pie crust. Once I even used some leftover matzah when I was in a pinch and it worked really well. Some other options for cookies are vanilla wafers, chocolate wafers, animal crackers, and ginger snaps .
There are several good brands of gluten-free graham crackers including Schar and Kinnnikinnick (vegan). In some markets I have actually been able to find gluten-free graham cracker crumbs. But if you can’t find them either grind up the crackers in the food processor or put them in a zip top bag and go over it with a rolling pin. They should be fine crumbs. If there are too many chunks of cracker, the pie crust will not hold together as well.
S’mores Pie Filling
This gluten-free s’mores pie is filled with a chocolate ganache. Ganache sounds so fancy but it’s really just melted chocolate and cream. The ganache layer is filled with whipped cream and is topped with fresh berries for a beautiful red, white and blue dessert. Light the marshmallows on fire for a fun and dramatic serving effect.
If you can find Marshmallow Fluff, you can use it in place of the whipped cream in the filling. You may need to heat it very briefly to make it easier to spread. It is a perfect dairy-free option and more in keeping with s’mores.
