Pumpkin Pie is the Thanksgiving dessert of choice for many families. This delicious pie is filled with fall flavours like cinnamon and nutmeg, and of course, pumpkin! This recipe calls for canned pumpkin, but alternatively, you could puree a roasted or steamed pie pumpkin, in order to substitute for the canned pumpkin in this recipe. Making pumpkin pie is as simple as blending together the ingredients, and pouring it into a pie shell to bake. The key to this vegan pumpkin pie, is to let it chill in the refrigerator overnight, so it has time to set and firm up. This recipe makes 30 miniature pumpkin pies, or two standard sized 9″ pies – of course you could also make both and bake 15 tart-sized pies and 1 large pumpkin pie!
