Cookbook * Millennium Cookbook: Extraordinary Vegetarian Cuisine
Recipe * Pecan Pie (filling only)
Yumm or Yuck? * Yuck
This was my first attempt at a vegan pecan pie, which made its failure that much more of a bummer. The filling was dry, crumbly, and a bit too salty and not nearly sweet enough. Think a pecan praline of sorts in a pie shell. I used a frozen pie shell, so I can't comment on the cookbook's pie crust recipe. I might try Real Food Daily's recipe next. Or, maybe I'll just tinker around with my Mema's pecan pie recipe - according to Southern tradition, pecan pie isn't pecan pie without Karo syrup anyway.
