UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.
Sorry I've missed a few post days. As most parents know babies don't always follow your schedule or do what you want them to.The past few days have been challenging in my household.
My parents Thanksgiving was Saturday, so I made a pie to take. I've never tried this recipe before, but it was really good. Just because you're dairy soy free does not mean you have to skip all the wonderful pies on Thanksgiving, you just have to be careful of your ingredients. And if this pie is not your taste here is a link to my Apple Pie recipe Dairy Free Soy Free Ugly Apple Pie
I made the two pie crust recipe even though this is a one crust pie. This way I would have extra in case I messed up. You can cut crust recipe in half if you are more confident in your crust making abilities.
Dairy Free Soy Free Pie Crust
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening (I use Spectrum All Vegetable Shortening)
4 to 6 tablespoons cold water
1 Egg (just the egg whites)
Mix flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas.
2/3 cup pure maple syrup
6 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups salted roasted nuts, coarsely chopped
2 ounces chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life Brand)
1 deep-dish pie shell (9-inch)
If your nuts need roasted heat the oven to 350 degrees and roast nuts in single layer on a cookie sheet or cake pan. Roast for 5 minutes take out and shake to mix. Put back in oven for 3-6 minutes until they smell nutty. Then chop to smaller pieces (make sure you chop after roasting or the pieces might burn).
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, maple syrup and coconut oil to a simmer, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat; let cool to room temperature.
