Pumpkin Pie

 There is a recipe for pumpkin pie on my website already, but this one is even better. It’s spicier, creamier, and dairy-free! Lately I’ve been off dairy, and the extra milk isn’t missed at all in this pie. I’m happy to say that one of my tasters even admitted to not liking pumpkin pie very much, but liked this one! That’s the best response I could ask for.

The crust I used, however, is something I have to give proper credit for. Megan over at Allergy Free Alaska has made the best gluten, dairy, and sugar-free pie crust I’ve ever tried. It’s light, flaky, and tastes like the pie crust your grandma would have made.IMG_7240

If you’re sensitive to spice, I’d suggest lessening the amount of spices you use. I tend to like lots of cinnamon and deeper spice in my pumpkin dishes, so I added more than most recipes call for.

In terms of substituting the evaporated milk, you could use all one type of milk. The reason I used a mixture of almond and coconut is because almond milk has a more neutral taste, but coconut milk is a bit sweeter. The combination of the two makes for less of a coconut taste, but is also lighter in flavour than just almond milk.

Also, “why the 3 sweeteners?” you ask? I feel the same way about sweeteners that I do about flours. A mix is better than one. It lends a richer, more varied taste to baking, and the combination of maple, stevia, and palm sugar allows for a well-rounded sweetness. I love using stevia because it’s one of the least invasive sugars on the body, but I’m not partial to it on its own.
