A unique and decadent pie, this recipe for Venus Pie is sure to impress. The crust is entirely unique in that it has a rich dark color owing to the use of black rice flour in the pie dough. The pie is filled with a layer of blueberry jam topped with a homemade goat cheese cream that is lightly flavored with rose water, see the recipe for instructions. Prepare the pie dough the night before and refrigerate overnight for best results.

My first time making this pie and I am already in love. It was nice and savory and didn't require a lot of time to make. I could not ask for a better 5 star venus pie recipe.
