I haven't made cheesecake since becoming vegan, but it's my all time favorite pie/cake. So this Thanksgiving, we're having pumpkin cheesecake instead of pumpkin pie OKAY.
It began thusly:
A reduced fat Ralph's brand crapola crust. Its label even said V for Vegan. It's weird how pervasive veganism has grown just over the past couple of years. Anyway, the filling.
How do I know? No, I didn't cut into the cheesecake, but I did have a bit of filling leftover in the bowl and had to have a taste...
The pie filled, it was time to commence baking procedures:
It took 45 minutes of impatience, but the result was worth it:
We did a lot of Thanksgiving shopping this weekend, and I pre-made some herby dense bread for stuffing and chopped up some butternut squash for roasting. Yes, the boy did buy a turkey.
