Pumpkin Pie

Makes One Pie (Can be made Vegan**)

This recipe goes along with the Pie Crust Recipe. When I make 2 pies, I just make this one twice in two separate mixing bowls so I can keep them equal. Also, you have the ability to make one vegan and one not if you are serving people with both preferences.

In a Large bowl, stir together:

3/4 Cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Ginger

1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt

1/4 tsp Cloves

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

In a mixing bowl, mix well with a hand mixer on medium speed for 1 minute:

15 0z of Organic Pumpkin Puree

1 1/4 Cups Coconut Milk

2 Eggs (or equivalent Substitute for Vegan Pie**)

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix with hand mixer until well blended. Pour filling into Pie Crust and Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 55 – 65 minutes. To determine if the pie is done, stick a knife into the pie about one inch from the edge of the crust. If the knife comes out clean, the pie is done. (If your pie is Vegan it may need 5 to 10 more minutes.) Place on a wire rack to cool for 2 hours before cutting. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

Serve with Coconut Whipped Cream on Top for just the right amount of sweetness:

1 –11oz Carton of So Delicious Culinary Coconut Milk 

2 Tbsps Organic Maple Syrup

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Konjac Powder

1/4 Cup Organic Vegetable Shortening (Nutiva)

For the absolute BEST pumpkin pie you have ever tasted, make your own applesauce in the crock pot and bake real organic pumpkins, here is how:

Applesauce:

Chop and core about 5 lbs of apples (enough to fill your crock pot)

Place chopped apples in crock pot and sprinkle over them

1 1/2 Tbsps ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Cook on High for 5 Hours, then use a Stick Blender to puree until smooth.

Pumpkin Puree:

Get 2 small Organic Pie Pumpkins and cut them into 4ths and remove the seeds

Place them face up on a Large cookie sheet and Roast them in the oven at 350 for 45 mins.

Let them cool then peel off the skins and blend them in a powerful blender like a Vitamix

(I tried using a food processor and it wasn’t quite powerful enough to get them as smooth as I wanted them)

Using this many apples and pumpkins will yield about 5 pies with some applesauce (about a quart mason jar full) and a little bit of pumpkin puree leftover. You can place 3/4 cup applesauce and 15 oz of Pumpkin puree into quart sized mason jars with all of the spices blended into it and freeze them to keep them longer. Once you are ready to use them, thaw and add coconut milk and eggs and pour into your crust and bake.
