File under: Clean eats. Whether you’re a pie connoisseur or a once-a-year holiday indulger, rest assured that this recipe is gluten-free, nut-free + vegan optional and doesn’t sacrifice any flavor. Go ahead, serve yourself the big slice!
We especially love the pie crust because it’s simple, but so delicious. Our cookies pack a delightful punch of spice and add the perfect crunch!
- 2 cups (2 boxes) of Partake Ginger Snap cookies
- 1/4 cup of organic brown sugar
- 6 tbsp of organic melted butter*
*Swap out the butter for a vegan alternative if you’re looking to make a vegan pie.
- 1 (15 ounces) can of organic pumpkin puree
- 3 organic eggs (or vegan egg substitute)
- ¼ cup of pure organic maple syrup
- ¼ cup of organic coconut sugar
- ¼ cup of organic, unsweetened vanilla almond milk (any milk will work!)
- 1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
- 1 ½ teaspoon of organic cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon of organic nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon of organic allspice or ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
How To Make:
- Let's start with the pie crust. Preheat oven to 350º.
- Using a food processor, grind cookies into fine crumbs.
- Add brown sugar and melted butter, combine well.
- Transfer combination above to 9-inch pie plate, press firmly into sides and bottom. Bake at 350º for 5-8 minutes
- While the crust is baking, make the filling! In a large bowl, add the pumpkin puree, eggs, pure maple syrup, sugar, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, allspice/cloves, and salt. Mix until combined and completely smooth. Pour into pie pan
- Bake for 50-60 minutes until filling is no longer jiggly. Check pie after every 20 minutes to make sure the crust isn't burning. If it is getting a little too golden brown, simply cover pie edges with foil or a pie shield. Allow pie to cool for at least an hour before serving. The pie should be kept in the fridge once completely cool
- Top with whipped cream or ice cream. Keep pie in the fridge
