I love pecan pie! It represents everything warm and yummy about the fall!
I used to make this at the store that I worked at last and it sure was a hit!
This version is not too sweet. The pecans really do a great job at balancing out the sweet!
Here is the recipe!
Vegan Pecan Butter Tart Pie!
makes 1- 9" pie
1 pre-baked pie crust, regular pastry crust or granola nut crust (ask if you need a recipe! )
¾ cup pecan halves
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup maple syrup
½ cup spelt flour
½ cup So Delicious vanilla coconut milk, soy creamer or canned coconut milk or any other non-dairy milk
3 Tbsp Earth Balance, cut into chunky pieces
2 tsp pure vanilla extract ( a bit more if using original flavored non-dairy milk)
½ tsp pure maple extract
¼ tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spread pecans over the bottom of your pre-baked pie crust.
Loosely mix all other ingredients (leaving chunks of Earth Balance) in a bowl and pour into crust and bake for 1 hour!!
Watch it bubble! Let it cool for an hour and dig in! :)
