Vegan Perfect Pie Crust
Originally published November 2017
A few weeks ago I experimented with making vegan pies, so naturally a vegan pie crust was a must. In the summertime, fruit fillings are a vegan no-brainer. Come Thanksgiving, though, two classic recipes need some rethinking: pumpkin pie and pecan pie. I'll get to those recipes shortly. Right now, it's all about this Vegan Perfect Pie Crust.
I'll preface that the real deciding factor here is going to be the butter substitute you choose. I developed this recipe using Miyoko's Kitchen vegan butter. It's hands down the very best non-dairy butter I've ever tasted, almost mind-blowing how it mimics the taste of real butter. Plus, it produced the flakiest crust. As with all of my perfect pie crust recipes, this Vegan Perfect Pie Crust doesn't need any chilling time. You make it, roll it, fill it, and bake it. It's really that easy.
