Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Alisha McDarris

Because you can't have a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal without following it up with pumpkin pie, here's an awesome recipe for a vegan pumpkin pie that tastes absolutely delightful (and doesn't call for any weird ingredients like tofu). Whip up one or two and impress the crap out of your friends and family with this American holiday classic.

This vegan pumpkin pie is super pumpkin-y, not too sweet, and has a nice crispy crust, just how I like it. 

American (Vegan) Pumpkin Pie

For the crust:

2 Cups flour
½ Cup coconut oil, vegetable shortening, or dairy free margarine
1 Tablespoon sugar
½ Teaspoon salt
8 Tablespoons ice water

For the filling:

1 Can (15 ounces) pureed pumpkin
1/4 Cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons almond milk
1 Teaspoon coconut oil
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 Teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 ½  Teaspoons cinnamon
¼ Teaspoon ground ginger
¼ Teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground clove
Pinch of salt

Mix crust ingredients by hand or in a mixer on low, just until combined. Sprinkle flour on a flat surface and roll out the dough using a rolling pin. Once rolled out thin, place in a pie plate and trim the excess, pinching the edges as you go for that nice crimped look.
Then, prepare the filling by mixing your wet and dry ingredients separately. Next, combine the wet and dry into one bowl and mix by hand or in a mixer on low. When it's all nice and whipped together spoon the filling into the crust, smoothing out the top.

With the leftover crust dough, feel free to use cookie cutters or a paring knife to cut out fall themed shapes like pumpkins, leaves, or Christmas trees to decorate the top. Place one or two on top, then bake for 25 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Serve warm or at room temperature alongside vegan ice cream or whipped topping. And try not to eat it all in one sitting, OK?
