10+ Vegan Pie Crust Recipes

I tried all the vegan pie crust recipes and they were delicious! Of course, they’re different than butter-based pie crusts: The coconut pie crust tastes of coconut, the cocoa butter pie crust tastes of chocolate and the almond pie crust tastes slightly of almonds. The boiled pie crust and the pasta dough pie crust aren’t as flaky like a pie crust made with butter. The chickpea flour pie crust is only for savory pies and the palm oil pie crust is bright yellow!

My favorite vegan pie crusts are the aquafaba pie crust, the hazelnut pie crust and the pie crust with soy milk and lemon juice. The aquafaba and soy milk lemon pie crusts are just as flaky as an all-butter pie crust and they have a neutral taste – perfect for all kinds of pies! And the hazelnut is delicious with fruit pies, such as blackberry pie, apple pie or juneberry pie, and if you have pie dough leftover you can turn it into hazelnut cookies or dog treats.

When very dry, chop fine by putting through a meat-chopper or mill; return to the oven, and dry very slowly and thoroughly.

Victorian Homemade Raw Almond Butter: Soak almond ‘in boiling water from two to five minutes; then the skins become loose and can be pinched off by pressing on the nut with the thumb and finger; the skin will crack and the kernel pop out. […] They must then be dried in the oven until quite crisp, but the oven must not be hot, or they will brown. Then run them through a loosely adjusted mill or a sausage grinder, and place on a cloth stretched over the stove until perfectly dry; then grind them in the nut-butter mill, quite tightly adjusted.’ (Guide For Nut Cookery, 1898)
