It’s fall, and you know what that means, it’s also pie season. And this year, I’ve created a delicious, gooey, and classic American dessert. The pecan pie! However, this isn’t your normal pecan pie. This one uses pure maple syrup to sweeten up and a touch of bourbon! No corn-syrup here! It’s the perfect dessert for the fall holidays or just for any Autumnal occasion. Introducing the vegan maple bourbon pecan pie!
I’m gonna be honest with you, when it comes to pie season, I usually gravitate towards pumpkin pie. Pecan was never a pie that I went for, mainly because the ones that I’ve had were tooth-achingly sweet. If you know me, even though I enjoy desserts, I actually prefer them to be less sweet. When I tested this recipe, decided to ditch the corn syrup and use something milder. Maple was the best choice for this pie. Not only does it fit the season, but it has the perfect balance of sweetness, and it just gives the pie a boost of flavor. It’s just delicious and I would recommend making this vegan maple bourbon pecan pie!
Traditionally, pecan pie is made with eggs, sugar and corn syrup, it’s like a baked sugar custard. However, we’re a plant-based blog, and we don’t use eggs or dairy here. Surprisingly enough, pecan pie is an easy recipe to veganize. Simple swap out the eggs for a different binder, which in this case I used cornstarch. It helps make the filling thick and set as it cools. Might I say that this pie might be even better than the original? With the addition of bourbon, cinnamon, and vanilla, it gives this pie an extra level of flavor that’s bound to impress your vegan and non-vegan friends.
