🔪Prep Time: 45 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Crust:

1 and 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour (156g)

1 Tbsp White Granulated Sugar

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Vegan Butter (113g)

1 Tbsp Ice Water may need up to 1 and 1/2 Tbsp

Filling:

1/2 cup Vegan Butter (113g)

3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar (150g)

1/2 cup Maple Syrup (120ml)

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/4 tsp Sea Salt

1 and 1/2 Tbsp Cornstarch

1/4 cup Coconut Milk (60ml)

2 cups Chopped Pecans (300g)

For Decorating:

1 cup Pecan Halves (110g)

For Serving:

Vegan Whipped Cream

Vegan Ice Cream

Instructions

1Prepare the crust. Add the flour, sugar and salt to your mixing bowl and mix together.

2Now add the vegan butter and mix it in with your hands until crumbly.

3Add ice water, only as much as needed to form it into a ball of dough (we used 1 Tbsp but you may need up to 1 and 1/2).

4Place the dough into the fridge for an hour for the gluten in the dough to relax (this helps to prevent the crust from shrinking during baking)

5After an hour, bring out the dough and roll it carefully into a circle wider than the size of your 9-inch pie dish.

6Spray your pie dish with non-stick spray, and place the dough over your pie dish pressing the crust down into the edges of the dish. Trim off the excess dough with a scissors.

7Crimp the edges of the crust to create a pattern, or skip this step entirely and just leave the crust straight along the top.

8Place the crust back into the fridge while you work on the filling.

9Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

10Prepare the filling. Melt the vegan butter and light brown sugar in a saucepan and add the maple syrup, vanilla extract and sea salt. Whisk together until the sugar has melted.

11Mix the cornstarch with the coconut milk until smooth and then add it into the saucepan and whisk in quickly. Add chopped pecans and mix everything together (see notes*).

12Pour the filling out over the crust and smooth down.

13Add pecan halves to the top of the pie for decoration.

14Bake for 35-40 minutes until the center is bubbling and the crust is lightly browned.

15Allow to cool for an hour on the countertop and then move to the fridge until set (1-2 hours).
