Carrot pie? What the what?

I know. You’re thinking I’m nuts for suggesting you take something as amazing as pie and make it with carrots. I mean, most people make Strawberry Rhubarb pie or French Apple Pie or even Crustless Pumpkin Pie, right? And while those are good…you guys, you just have to try carrot pie.

Make this carrot pie just once and take a lil’ bite. You will discover that it is a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

It has to be amazing. It’s an ol’ family recipe.

I really want to give you some idea of what this tastes like—it’s sweet, sorta kinda custardy but not really. In all honesty, carrot pie is its own lil’ thang.

So what you’re going to have to do is trust me. Trust me that it’s delicious and deserving of your time and your mouth.

You can trust a farm(ish) girl, right?

Good. Now go make this.
