Vegan Coconut Cream Pie
This was a dessert-filled weekend! My husband and I celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary today, and so we purchased a Chi Cake for ourselves (and our 4-year old... she loves them)!
Also, we joined my sister and her family for supper last night to celebrate her birthday, and I brought my vegan Coconut 'Cream' Pie (pictured above - p.193, The Everyday Vegan) for dessert.
This pie is light and luscious, and not overly sweet. I toasted extra coconut to sprinkle on the finished pie (which is not listed in my recipe directions - I think I will add this for the next reprint). Since time was short, I didn't make the oat crust specified in my recipe, and instead used Wholly Wholesome's Ready-To-Bake Traditional Pie Shell (pictured). I am lovin' their vegan pies and pie crusts!
The pie was devoured... I'm glad we still have some Chi Cake to enjoy today!
