The crust for this pie worked reasonable well. The rim of the crust
turned rock hard and was essentially inedible (looked pretty, though).
But the crust that was under the pie was moist and very edible. Not
flaky, of course (you need oil to get a flaky crust), but a very
servicable and decent crust.
PASTRY CRUST (VEGAN)
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 t salt
1/3 cup light corn syrup
2 T Rice Dream
Mix together all ingredient in a bowl and shape into a ball. Try to
work the dough as little as possible.
Place the ball of dough between two sheets of wax paper that have been
dusted with flour. Roll out the ball of dough between the sheets
until it is large enough to line a 9-inch pie pan. You may need to
stop midway and re-flour the paper to keep the dough from sticking.
Slightly grease a glass 9-inch pie plate (with 1/4 t of oil or a quick
squirt of non-stick spray). Carefully place the crust in the pie
plate. Crimp the dough around the rim so it looks nice.
TOFU PUMPKIN PIE
1 1/2 packages Mori Nu Lite Tofu (firm)
1 16oz can pumpkin (or 2 cups cooked pumpkin)
2/3 cup honey
1 t vanilla
1 T pumpkin pie spice (or 1 1/2 t cinnamon, 3/4 t ginger,
1/4 t nutmeg, 1/4 t cloves)
1 unbaked fatfree 9" crust
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Blend tofu in blender until creamy
smooth. Add pumpkin, honey, vanilla and spices and blend well. Pour
into unbaked crust. If using a fatfree flour crust, cover crust rim
with foil. Bake for approximately one hour or until toothpick
inserted in center comes out almost clean. Chill.
