I made the pumpkin cheesecake a few days ago and the texture/etc. is great, but I used the called-for 1/4 t of orange extract (zest is the other option) and it is WAY too orange-y. It's the first thing you taste and totally overwhelms the flavor of the pumpkin/spices/etc. I wonder if I just have particularly strong orange extract? I used this:

In any case, I'll use less or leave it out if I make this again.

Yes! That's the kind of extract I used, and I found it to be extremely orangey too. It worked for me, I thought it gave the cheesecake an unexpected, whimsical brightness. I will probably lessen the orange next time though, or omit it altogether.

I still don't own this cookbook, and that makes me so sad. Then again, I feel like there are a few ingredients and tools I'd want to buy before owning the book, anyway. It might be a nice summer treat to myself. I can bring pies into work so I don't get too chubby.

Howeeeever, I see it's only $11 on Amazon, so I might splurge.

At this moment I am baking TWO pies: Appleberry and Blackberry Bramble. I am sooooooo excited. I've been wanting pie so badly for a few days now. I think this is a good sign things my system is returning to Semi-Normal Mode.

ETA: I left out the blackberry liqueur because I had none. Will that make a HUGE difference?

I wouldn't think it would make a huge difference. I was actually going to leave out the liqueur next time because the kind I got made the pie taste weird—how did yours turn out?

I made the chocolate pudding pie today. Yom yom yom!

I made that too, and it made me wonder - in the book it says you can use whatever non-dairy milk you choose, because most recipes only use a little of it. Obviously the chocolate pudding pie recipe uses quite a lot, so will only almond milk work for that recipe? I substituted oat milk because almond milk doesn't seem available in my country (such a shame, it sounds delicious!) and while the texture was great, the oaty taste overpowered the chocolate :s.


I just made the pudding pie and used soy milk. Mine never really thickened a ton no matter how long I cooked it. I cooked it for about 22 minutes hoping it would thicken more and it never did. It wasn't watery thin or anything just not super thick like I think a pudding should be. I'm hoping as it cools it gets much thicker. Just by tasting a bit of the warm pudding before putting it in the fridge the taste isn't super chocolatey or sweet enough for my tastes but overall I don't think using soy milk instead of almond milk caused anything weird to happen to my pudding pie.

I only realised as I was stirring the boiling mixture, that I didn’t know exactly how thick it should become. It had definitely thickened after 7 minutes, but it wasn’t as thick as a pudding, which I thought it should be, so I kept cooking. It didn’t get much thicker though, so eventually (after maybe 15 minutes or more) I poured it into the crust and let it cool as described. And yes, then it got much thicker, and really puddingy.

My omni workmates were raving about this cheesecake so much, when I brought in leftovers for them. I didn't tell them it had tofu in, I should have just to see the look on their faces.

I have had this book since christmas and still not made anything out of it. I don't know why, maybe because I have never made a pie before and I am scared!

I was the same way, it took my baking group using it as the book of the month for me to make anything. But it's not nearly as bad as I feared. I highly recommend the food processor method of mixing the dough, it makes it SO much easier!

I made the grasshopper pie last night. It was my first time using agar powder and I am amazed at how well it set and still has a good texture. My only question is whether another non-dairy milk can be substituted for the coconut milk. I'm assuming it adds to the texture, but I can still taste coconut and my tastebuds do not like the combination.

Made these Valentines day pie pockets with the raspberry pie filling and the double buttery crust from the book! Topped with a powdered sugar glaze and some edible glitter! I'm actually in love with how they came out!

Love, love, LOVE this cookbook! My bf gave it to me for Christmas! He claims it was for me but I think he really bought it for him..

Anywho, I made the brownie pb cheesecake, only I changed it into a chocolate covered strawberry cheesecake with a few substitutions. Strawberry puree for the banana and almond butter for the pb equals SUCCESS! I was afraid it would be too acidic and not set but it was perfection!

I posted pics on my blog.. http://peanutbutterandginger.wordpress. ... valentine/

I was SO excited to give the bf and slice it up for breakfast this morning!

I made the Blueberry Bliss Cheesecake for Valentine's Day. Whoa! I followed the wisdom of the PPK and used an under-ripe banana for it and it was perfect! I can't wait to have occasion to try the other cheesecakes now.

It was fabulous! :-D

Tonight I'm buying the stuff I need to make the Key Lime Pie. It will be my first experience using agar powder AND my first time (that I recall) making a lime pie. I LOVE lime pie.

If it turns out, I'll post pictures! :-D

Awesome! I keep meaning to try the Key Lime Pie....

In other pie news, I found a Chocolate Orange Hazelnut Tart in the freezer and I am overjoyed.

I pronounce the Key Lime Pie a smashing success. (I didn't use actual key limes. But, ya know.)

My 2 year old daughter also approves. Omnomnom. The pie is almost half gone and my husband hasn't even come in yet to have a piece. Oops.

It is absolutely amazing. I cannot get enough of it or quit talking about it and everyone is probably sick of me. Haha.

It also gave me an idea for a variation that I cannot WAIT to try.
