This blog is about my experiences living gluten free in San Diego.

I tried Fabe's gluten-free pumpkin and apple pies over the holidays. Even with my limited culinary skills, I can make a pumpkin pie when armed with a pre-made pie crust. However, over the holidays, sometimes you just need to grab a pie from the store. It is nice that there are options for pre-made gf pies and that these pies are vegan too but I think they could be better. The pies are pretty small, maybe 4 servings, really 3 servings per pie. They run about $8 each at Whole Foods so they are not cheap given the size. The pumpkin pie was okay, it was a little soggy in the middle and a little heavy. The apple pie was a little heavy on the crust and light on the apple. Overall, these pies are good in that they present a gluten-free pie option but I think they could be better. If they were larger and had better filling, I would be more likely to repurchase.
