Pumpkin Pie Recipes

Several people have sent me pumpkin pie recipes in response to my request. Here they are. If you try one, please let me know how you like it. Or, if you try a traditional pumpkin pie recipe but substitute soy or rice milk for real milk, please let me know how that went.

Valerie A. Nicholls of Mississauga, Ontario sent this one along. (Thanks, Valerie!) Her family likes it. I tried it and thought the texture was excellent, but it definitely needed more sugar and possibly more spice. (The amount of sugar and spice added probably varies according to the kind of apple butter you use. I suspect the jar I had may have been a bit weak.)

Valerie's Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

Whisk together in order given: Pour into 1 unbaked pie crust. Bake at 375F for 50-60 minutes.

Great by itself or served with freshly made soy "whipped cream".

Vegetarian Cooking Class' Pumpkin Pie

Sheena sent this one along from a vegetarian cooking class she attended. She hasn't tried it as she doesn't like pumpkin pie. I haven't tried it yet either, but it looks interesting. If you try it, tell me how you like it, please. Blend first seven ingredients until very smooth. Add pumpkin and stir until well mixed. Bring 2/3 cups of water to a boil and add emes. Stir until dissolved. Add to pumpkin mixture and stir well. Pour into pie crust and bake at 350 f for 50 min. Shield pie crust edges with foil. Let cool. Top with cashew cream if desired.
