Here is your complete guide to homemade vegan pie! First, you'll master your crust, be it flaky, nutty, cookie-based, vegetable-based, or gluten-free. You'll learn to make and roll the dough. Then, you'll craft your filling, finish your pie, decorate it, and make a homemade topping. (Vegan whipped cream, anyone?) Whether you're looking for a filling meal - such as Mushroom-Polenta Pie or Cornish Pasties - or a dessert pie beyond compare - such as Pumpkin Pie or Butterscotch Pudding Pie - Pies and Tarts with Heart has a lovingly crafted pie for you. And with gluten-free and raw options, you'll be sure to find the perfect pie for your family's needs.
