Avocado Pie with Cinnamon Basil

I am always looking for unique recipes.  When I came across this recipe, I knew I just had to try it.

This recipe is sponsored by Paradise Grove Avocados and they provided the most beautiful large avocados that I have ever seen!  They are so delicious and rich.  I don’t think I will ever purchase another avocado in the store again.  You can order fresh avocados delivered to your door directly from Paradise Grove Avocados.  They ripen in just a few days, and you’ll love them.

I decided to make the avocado pie with a toasted pecan crust and use key limes.

The result, if you closed your eyes and didn’t know that it was made with avocados, you would have thought you had taken a bite of a rich, creamy, smooth, key lime pie.

You have to try it for yourself and you will find a new recipe to add to your favorites. And if you order your avocados from Paradise Grove Avocados, you will never purchase an avocado from the store again!
