Wow this is good! I made a gluten free crust from almond and coconut flour and butter which filled a 9 inch pan. And I reduced the sugar to 1 cup which still is plenty sweet for us, we're not used to really very sweet stuff LOL I'm pretty sure I'll make this again because it's so easy to put together and so gooey yummy! Thanks for sharing! Made for What's on the Menu
