Improved Pumpkin Pie (GF, V, No-Bake)

Post by Megan Stulberg

I have made many a’ pumpkin pies in my day. There’s this one I posted last year, for instance — which was good, but the consistency just wasn’t quite right and I knew I could do better. I made this dish the other day for American Thanksgiving and god *damn*, was it an improvement! The only problem was that it was all pretty last minute and the store was sold out of non-dairy whipped cream (my own fault), so I had it with vanilla bean ice cream instead. Still real good, though.

This pie is no-bake, raw except for the pumpkin puree, soy-free, gluten-free and vegan.

  1. I love that you decided to make a newer version of an old recipe and were honest about knowing where you could have improved. I do believe that your previous pie recipe looked DELICIOUS, but now I LOVE both of them!
