So last week was Thanksgiving. And I decided to make a gluten-free and dairy free Oreo “dirt” pie for my niece and myself to enjoy (we’re the ones with allergies). What I didn’t realize was that there was going to be an original Oreo “dirt” pie there as well. All of a sudden I felt pressure, and maybe a little competition (hehe). Would my allergy friendly Oreo Pie taste just as delicious as the good old fashion original?
Updated –> Link to new vegan version of this no bake Oreo dirt pie.
Well, as I was making the my Oreo pie, I started to realize that I was trying force my wee little pie to look like the original. Or maybe even better. I mean, it is Oreo pie, how can you really go wrong?
Then it dawned on me. I don’t need to make this pie look like the original, it’s gonna be FABULOUS as it is. Sure it may look a little different, but it still looks delicious. Sure it may have a different consistency, but I kind of like it that way. Sure it may taste a little different than the original, but my goodness is it TASTY and worth spoonful.
Funny thing is, life is kind of life MY Oreo pie. Our life plan doesn’t unfold like we originally thought, but in the long run it actually turns out better, and better for us.
I know I know, life isn’t like Oreo pie it’s, it’s suppose to be like A box of chocolates. Well I don’t really like chocolates, so I’m going with this.
Food for thought on a Wednesday. Try not to overthink it. Now, how about I feed share with you this recipe and call it a day? Yup!
Oh, and although this recipe is allergy friendly, it’s still dessert… not healthy, but it’s sooo worth it!Print
Happy Wednesday! Who’s ready for a slice of life… I mean pie?
