Blueberry Chia Pie

I don't know about you, but I always associate the holiday season with pies - especially Thanksgiving. I recently made my first gluten free and vegan pie, and it was everything I could of hoped for. As a matter of fact I will now be using this pie crust for any pies I make now.

What's your favorite kind of pie? Mine? Four Berry or Strawberry.... yum!
