Vegan MoFo - Day 21

Day 21 - Pie & Praise!
This year's Vegan MoFo has unleashed some pretty remarkable blogs, recipes, themes, photos/videos, etc. I've bookmarked and pinned untold amounts of vegan awesomeness, which I'll probably be going through well into the new year. Some favorites have included Fork & Beans Homemade Twix Bars, this Homemade Tofu tutuorial from Messy Vegetarian Cook, and basically the entirety of Meet the Wiko's mofo theme - street food! There are so many awesome contributions that my head is spinning, and we've still got another week of awesome.

With all this mofo marvelousness, I thought it'd be ok to take a break from my mofo theme to celebrate the arrival of one of the greatest things to ever (finally) exist.

Let's hear it for the pie! Oooh, let's give the pie a haa-aa-y-ayaannd!

Vegan Pie in the Sky completes the trilogy of dessert books by Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero. I've made two things from this book so far. First, the Pear Frangipane Tart (recipe found HERE), and second (only after receiving my physical copy), the Maple-Kissed Blueberry Pie! I had to use frozen blueberries because the only fresh ones available we out-of-season, mushy and ridiculously high-priced. This pie tasted great, but please heed Moskowitz&Romero's warnings and UP THE THICKENER when using frozen fruits. My filling was a little thin, but quickly firmed up after a night in the fridge. And by the way, that crust is 100% homemade...and it was pretty easy!

I'm so excited to bake my way through this book!!
