Punk'n pie

(I wrote the post, and then firefox crashed, so I had to write it again. I hate that so much.)

I made the pie at my parents' house, where I had Thanksgiving dinner. My mother pre-cooked the pumpkin for me.

I put the filling in a Kitchen-Aid mixer, but it didn't really break up the tofu and sugar, so there were lots of visible white dots. I interpreted "pumpkin pie spice" to mean cinnamon and ginger.

I transferred the filling into a food processor.

We got this Keebler graham crust, because it's frigging impossible to find vegan graham crackers/crumbs. My mother had never heard of Keebler. I thought that was funny.

The pie turned out well. We had it with soy ice cream.

Are those finger prints I see on the pie? :) If so I totally understand.

I also bought the Keebler crust for mine! Looks delish. Did it solidify well?

I wanted to use the Keebler white crust (I think it's called shortbread) which is also accidentally vegan, but the store was out. The graham crust is sweeter than the white one, and my Mom used a banana to replace the egg in the punpkin mix, so the whole thing was really sweet! She didn't use this recipe for the filling though.

It aolidified ok, but we didn't really let it cool down much before eating it. It might have gotten more firm.

Oh, yeah, I find I always have to let vegan pies wait for a few hours to cool down and firm up.
