Ingredients

for the crust:

for the filling:

  • 1 can 15 oz. pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

for the whipped cream:

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk chilled
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Place walnuts into your food processor for 30 seconds or so, or until they're finely ground. Add flour and sugar and pulse; then, add the butter and pulse again. Last, add in the ice water and pulse until dough comes together and is no longer crumbly.
  • Remove dough from the processor and form it into a round disc. Wrap it in plastic wrap and stick it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or longer if preferred.
  • Once the 30 minutes have passed, remove dough and preheat oven to 350°.
  • Roll dough out into a circle and carefully transfer it to your pie or tart pan, using your hands to press it gently into the pan and form the edges of the crust.
  • For the filling: combine all ingredients in your blender and pulse until smooth. Use a rubber spatula to scoop mixture out into the tart/pie pan, smoothing it out.
  • Bake pie for 45 minutes or so. If you're using a tart pan, wait 5 minutes and then remove pie from the pan. If you're using a pie pan, simply wait for pie to cool--I recommend chilling in the refrigerator--then slice and serve with whipped cream (optional).
  • For the whipped cream: the coconut milk should be mostly cream at this point, but scoop out the cream and drain out any liquid left in the can (you just want the cream part); then, add sugar and cinnamon and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Top pie with whipped cream and enjoy!

Notes

*If mixture isn't coming together, add extra water in 1 tbsp at a time
