Gluten-free pies

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.

They are available at Whole Foods and Sprouts.
