One thing that concerned me a bit was that my brother largely depends on me to make the vegan fare on holidays(my brother is vegan as well). Although I wasn't going to be spending Thanksgiving with him, it was very important to me that I make him a pumpkin pie. For this occasion, I decided to try out Allyson's Bourbon Laced Pumpkin Pie. Since I had a good amount of dough left over after laying it in the pie dish, I decided to make squirrel cut-outs for the top, rather than the crumble topping. Overall, the pie was a bit time consuming, but my brother reported back that he loved it. Between him and his non-vegan friend(who spent the holiday with my family), they polished off over 3/4ths of the pie during the evening.
I also made a pumpkin pie for Dayv, to bring along to his family's Thanksgiving get-together. I decided to use my pie crust recipe for this one, but doubled it. I used the left over dough to make gorilla and fox cut-outs(gotta represent the animals!). I used Angela's Classic Pumpkin Pie Filling. This pie was a hit with Dayv's family, who finished the entire pie within the day, and overlooked other gluten-filled non-vegan pies that were also on the table. They kept saying, "I hope you didn't want to bring any pie home with you!" I told them that nothing makes me happier than seeing non-gluten-free non-vegan people enjoying the food I make.
I hope everyone had a great holiday and were able to make some delicious vegan food that non-vegans loved ;)
