14 delicious pie crust recipes – all vegan (dairy-free & egg-free), most are nut-free and two even gluten-free! Vegan pie crusts made with aquafaba, red palm or coconut oil, cocoa butter or olive oil, raw nut butter or nut flour.
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 as 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.

The ‘door was thrown open leading into the great exhibition-room. Here was a magnificent Christmas-tree hung all over with colored wax tapers; here were tables covered with white cloths, and glittering from head to foot with the most bewitching doll-babies, work-boxes, card-cases, silk dresses, rattles, penny whistles, shawls, sashes, drawing-implements, and I don’t know what all, for big and little, with a name written upon each, and ever so many funny inscriptions to make it all the more merry.’ (An American Family In Germany, 1866, p. 183) Continue reading The Victorian Christmas Tree→
