    i really, really want to make this, but do not have a kitchen torch…as such, is there any work-around for that portion of the recipe? 🙁

      I totally understand and I was in the same position a couple months ago when I made my pumpkin cupcakes with meringue so I just popped them into the oven with the broiler on high for 1-2 minutes. You can try doing the same. The meringue will toast quickly so I recommend not leaving the pie in there for more than 2 minutes. Also, move your rack down so it’s not too high. Let me know how it goes!

      Yes, but keep in mind that gluten free flour is dryer than regular flour so you may not need as much butter for the dough to come together. Good luck
