Southern Chocolate Pie with Peanut Flour Pie Crust

This “nutty new take” on an old Southern Favorite is absolutely divine. Our gluten-free Byrd Mill Peanut Flour is made naturally by grinding peanuts and removing most of the oil. That means you can add rich peanutty flavor to this traditional recipe to make it even tastier.

3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
