We made the pumpkin cheesecake for the first time this weekend. Pure bliss! It was totally worth paying a HUGE amount & having to order the pumpkin puree online.

Many of the creamy pies use cashews. It's probably best to browse through the book at the library or a bookshop before buying it, so that you can see how many of the recipes you could use.

Most of the time the amount of cashews called for is 1/2 cup, which is not that much, so maybe you could sub the cashews with something else? Silken tofu maybe?

Macadamia nuts? Soaked almonds?


as i mentioned above, i'm allergic to peanuts + all nuts so your suggestion won't work for me :( but maybe for someone else :)

I think the book is still worth it for the crusts, fruit pies and other bits and pieces (chocolate truffle tart!). There are a bunch of things in there that I can't make (banana allergy), but there's even more that I can and do make all the time.

Ooooh, how did you do this? Or is it a trade secret? Chocolate pecan pie is an old fav of mine!

Oops! I guess I should have checked this thread in the last two months! Probably irrelevant now, but I subbed 2 Tbs of the soy milk for bourbon (more if you like it more boozy), and added 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the mixture before pouring it into the crust. It got so fudgy and delicious.

hi everyone. my hubby's birthday is coming up soon and i was thinking about making the old-fashioned chocolate pudding pie on page 163. have any of y'all made that? did it turn out super yum? everything firm up a-okay? i'm intrigued because the pie does not use silken tofu or agar agar!

i have a peanut + all tree nut allergy so i was going to sub soy milk (regular and not unsweetened i assume) for the almond milk.

It's the best! Totally perfect. Subbing the milk will make zero difference. Just use whatever you have.

ZOMG. Why did I wait so long to make the famous Strawberry & Rhubarb Crumb Pie?!
I got some fresh rhubarb from a coworker's garden, so I finally had the perfect reason to make it - and, wow, I almost feel like calling in sick just so I can stay home and eat pie all day. It is DIVINE.

This may be a dumb question, but: Would the amount of fruit needed change if I used those teeny wild blueberries Trader Joe's sells instead of normal-sized blueberries?

I Googled a bunch of recipes for both blueberry and wild blueberry pies, and it seemed like generally the wild blueberry recipes called for more cups of fruit than the straight-up version, but the amount ranged pretty widely in both types of pie, so I'm not feeling very confident about guessing.

Thanks!

Yeah, if it's measured by the cup and not weight then add an extra cup or so. Extra berries never hurt no one!

Interesting. To me wild blueberries are normal and the giant American ones are pretty new in shops (sold as large blueberries). I've never adjusted the amount of berries (at least not consciously) in anything I make. Though, I have to admit that I'm shamefully underutilising this book because wow! American pies are really huge!

I made the Maple Pecan Pie finally last night. I'm sorry I waited so long to make this. It was incredible. It has been a very long time since I've had pecan pie but I recall it being so sweet. This pie had just the right amount of sweetness. I served it to some omni family members and thought it was one of the best pecan pies they have tasted. Now, I need to figure out how to incorporate chocolate into it.

I made the key lime pie yesterday as a belated birthday treat. Like a number of people here I found it too gelled but the taste was still amazing. I searched discussion about the pie and found the link to the PPK recipe Isa originally posted: http://www.theppk.com/2008/11/latchkey-lime-pie/ which cleared things up a bit.

The problem I had with the recipe in the book was that initially it said to bring the almond milk/agar/ tapioca mixture to a boil but it doesn't say when or how much to turn it down. I was cautious of having a liquidy mess so I turned it down some but probably not as much as I should have. Next time, and there definitely will be a next time, I will cook it with a little less heat and it will likely not be as gelly-like (as per the PPK directions).

Still, if a friend had given me a piece of this I would have raved about how good it is. I love how it is just barely sweet and very limey. Very nice on a hot summer evening.

I make the key lime pie a lot, and I always now reduce the agar to 1 1/2 tsp. It turns out perfectly every time.

It's kind of hilarious to me that I've had this book for awhile now, and just made the summer fruit buckle cake (with peaches) twice last week. Guess I just really am more of a cake than pie person (lazy). Still, this book is gorgeous and I want to make so many of them, even if just for special occasions or as gifts. I need to get a bigger pie plate though. Mine is super shallow.

However! I brought the book home with me last week and my mom drooled over it and is totally going to buy it for herself. Yay for more vegan pies in the world (and hopefully they will be timed with my visits)!

The summer fruit buckle is in the oven now. It smells divine. I can't wait to try it.

Has anyone made the maple pecan pie substituting for the tofu? It seems like it would be a winner at family dinner but my omni sweetheart's omni momni doesn't want to eat soy.

(I kind of love that my sweetheart said "Just throw in a flax egg, right?" Because I am a vegan magician.)

I just checked the instructions from testing and 350 is right! Good job.


Thank goodness for this thread!!!!

I haven't tried this, but since the tofu is to stabilise the custard I wonder if you could double the cornstarch instead? And up the quantity of pecans a bit to make up for the loss of volume?
