Simple and Sweet Gluten-Free Summertime Treat

As a person with multiple food allergies, I sometimes will find myself digging for recipes that are easy to make, taste terrific, and nobody realizes are gluten-free.This simple pie hits the mark. Topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or coconut whip my family wolfed it down, no questions asked. The crust is baked, the filling cooked on the stovetop, you can serve it warm and slightly runny or cool it down
