I've been putting off getting this because I've not been able to find shortening here. Yesterday I did. Roll on next payday because I am totally getting this book!

I made the coconut cream pie on Isa's blog for Thanksgiving and immediately ordered the book!
Got it yesterday and leaved through it, OMG I can see myself gaining some weight.
I think I'm gonna bake through the entire book, everything looks so gorgeous!

Made the Pumpkin Cheesecake again (I did it last fall, too). It was even better than I remembered! It puts all other pumpkin-y treats to shame.

Me too. But only after I put it in the oven I read to refrigerate it at least 3 hrs. We lasted 2!
It is better the next day I have to say.
Should have taken a picture, it turned out beautifully!

Help needed! I've decided to make the chocolate hazelnut truffle tart recipe for the great Thanksgiving/Hanukkah convergence of 2013, and this uses the almond crust (I'm making the gluten free version). The tart recipe states that the crust should be baked before the filling goes in, but baking time and temperature aren't specified in the recipe, or in the crust recipe either.

How long should I bake this crust and at what temperature?

Just check the tester forum and it says 350 for 18-20 minutes until pastry is firm and edges just start to turn golden.

I can't find the tester forum. Were there any other instructions, for example, should pie weights be used, should the crust be chilled first, or anything like that?

Check it earlier than 18 minutes, depending how fast/hot your oven tends to cook. When my fan-assist worked it was done at about 15 minutes.

No chilling or weights necessary.

Oops! Sorry, the tester forum is hidden unless you're a tester, I should have been more clear.

Like dropscone said, no chilling/weights necessary, but it's probably best to check earlier to avoid burning!

Does anyone know if the pumpkin or pecan pies would be ok made 2 days in advance? I have Tuesday off from work and would love to get at least one dessert outta the way for Thursday but I don't want soggy crust sadness.

Does it makes sense to buy the book if you're trying not to use any palm oil?

Yes. the only palm oil ingredient is earth balance in some of the crusts, but most have a substitution option and there are oil based crusts too.

My mom wants to make a gluten-free dairy-free trifle to bring to our cousins' house for thanksgiving. We think the Banoffee Pie filling might be perfect. We are thinking about doubling the recipe and putting it in a trifle dish.

Any thoughts?

I made the salted caramel tart (beer variation) and it was amazing. I liked all the components even though it had a chocolate shortbread crust and I hate both shortbread and pie crust! I used coconut oil everywhere it called for margarine. I'm kicking myself for not having tried this one before, and it's definitely going in the rotation.

Ok so banoffee pie filling (recipe doubled), gluten freedom vanilla cupcakes (recipe doubled) and sweet coconut cream topping (recipe doubled). Perhaps some vegan/gluten-free cookies for the sides of the bowl & shaved chocolate or mini choc chips for the top. This is gonna be a winner - I can feel it!

It was a huge success! My cousins asked my mom for the recipe (I wasn't there). They were touched that we made so much effort to accommodate their needs. And now I know that I can successfully bake gluten free stuff when needed. I made both chocolate and vanilla cupcakes (sliced in half so the layers were thinner). I did get to taste some leftover banoffee filling with a cupcake. Yum!

Is there a trick to getting the Maple Pecan Pie to set up? I followed the directions exactly and its currently a nice caramel pecan sauce over a delicious crust. I baked it for 40 minutes and didn't want to risk overdoing it.

Oh wow, I've never had a problem with it. That's crazy! I don't know if there is a way to get it to set post-baking :(

Its still delicious! I think maybe I did the caramelization thing wrong, because I was too scared of it turning into a hard rock. I will definitely try again.

Also, my husband cut it before it had completely cooled, so there is that. He says that shouldn't stop it setting once its fully cold, but I am not so sure.

Oh, yeah, you should never cut a pecan pie before cooling! Definitely blame him if it never sets.
