Speaking of this recipe, has anyone turned the cheesecake recipes into smaller, cupcake shaped cheesecakes? You know, the kind with the crust pressed into the bottom of a paper liner, cheese filling on top? I want to make the blueberry one using cherries for a friend's get together but also want to make them user friendly. If you can't provide me that that info... how is the filling? Is it too moist? Does it solidify nicely? I just want them to stay together...

My omni roommates enjoyed it! Be sure to eat it fast because the crust got soggy at the 2 day mark. :P

Even though I've been pretty low on money the past few months, I had some breathing room today and decided to finally buy this book because it was on sale at the local bookstore. Yay! I'm saving the fruity pie recipes for summer unless frozen fruit is specifically recommended, so I've been looking at all the creamy and chocolate pies for now. Yum! I don't have any coconut oil (see money problem—though I do plan on buying some soon) but some recipes that don't use it and I have all the ingredients for, like Bannoffee pie, banana cookie cream pudding, and the old fashioned chocolate pudding pie. I would LOVE to make a cheesecake, as I've never made a vegan one before.

Something tells me I'm going to be baking a lot this summer. Hopefully I don't eat everything, which I am very capable of doing.

I can highly recommend the chocolate pudding one - so easy but really really good. I also have the issue with the coconut oil - can you sub it for anything else?

The Galaxy Banana cheesecake was my first recipe out of there.. I made the graham cracker crust with pretzels instead of the graham crackers and used walnuts for cashews (since they were cheaper). It was heavenly!

If you don't want to eat the whole cheesecake (which would be all too easy for me), I recommend slicing it, wrapping it and freezing it. It'll last longer and you don't have to worry about eating it before it gets soggy. Plus it really does taste awesome half frozen, just like VPITS promises!

Pretzels!!! That sounds delicious. Good to know that I can freeze some of the recipes, too.

I'm currently making the banoffee pie with a chocolate cookie crust. I was pleasantly surprised at how simple the coconut cream was, though I admit I'll probably try to look for lower fat/calorie variations when I'm back in Chicago and have more options. I mean, that's if I'm going to be eating pies regularly, which I probably will now that I have this book.

I just made the pear frangipane tart. I just took it out of the oven, and it's still pretty soft. I'm hoping it'll harden up a bit more in the two hours it's to cool. I definitely didn't get it as fancy looking as in the book, but it looks good!

I hear you loud and clear on that one! That banoffee pie looks extremely dangerous and delicious! Let us know how it turns out!

I'm sure it looks wonderful! Fancy recipe - lots of delicate fruit placement for the (mostly) impatient baker like me..

Oooh that gives me an idea.. perhaps cranberries and apples with that chocolate chip topping. I would be perfectly content eating that for dinner.. and breakfast..

Nearly Pi Day, so I'm predicting some apple pie in our future. Also the perfect occasion to try out the blueberry Ginger hand pies.

I'm plotting for Pi Day, too, and leaning towards an apple pie. I traditionally make square pies for Pi Day and I'm tempted to do this sometime.

I volunteered at Animal Acres on Saturday and brought the chocolate banana galaxy cheesecake. People loved it. It doesn't taste exactly like cheesecake, but it has a lovely texture and is yummy in its own right. I loved that it didn't call for 10 packages of vegan cream cheese (or any for that matter). Is there a way to prevent leaks from springform pans while baking, or is that just par for the course?

i made my first ever vegan cheesecake thanks to this book. before i was always afraid of things tasting too 'tofu-y', but the kind of complex process actually made me want to try them more. so glad i did, i made the pumpkin ones with some leftover canned pumpkin from thanksgiving.

I know ragging on a recipe that wasn't followed exactly is a no-no, so take this with a grain of salt:

I made the key lime pie and subbed grapefruit like someone else recommended in this thread. I'm not sure if there's just too much agar in the recipe, but it is awful. The pie has a really icky gel texture, not creamy at all. I also think it tastes all kinds of bad, but this could be my issue because I like neither grapefruit nor super-tart things (the pie was for my grapefruit-loving boyfriend's birthday). The boy was all about the crust that I made from scratch using the graham cracker recipe from VCIYCJ, but there's just no way to salvage it. It's been sitting in the fridge, untouched, since March 4. I guess it's time to trash it. :( Really wish I could at least find someone to pie...

I think your pan may be on it's way out if it's leaking!

I made the rad whip from the blog and it is amazing!! However, the blog says it makes 4 cups and I barely have 2. Is it not whipped enough?

I played with the peanut butter brownie cheesecake. I replaced the peanut butter with speculoos spread and changed the base to speculoos biscuit base. It was good.
