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.
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup apple butter
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ginger
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 3 beaten eggs
- 1 cup plain soymilk (or 3/4 c. + 1/4 c. water if using sweetened
kind from a box.)
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.
