Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie (dairy-free)

IMG_1930Pumpkin pie is my favourite dessert of all time. I could make pumpkin pie before I could even scramble an egg, following the instructions on the back of the E.D. Smith label religiously at every Thanksgiving. I even hoard extra cans of pumpkin and evaporated milk in the pantry for easy access to make it again, and again throughout the winter. The way I like my pumpkin pies are extra spicy, with freshly grated ginger and even some black pepper, and generous amounts of pumpkin spice in a smooth rich pumpkin filling. Served fresh from the oven with vanilla ice cream, or next day cold and jammed in a mason jar to eat on-the-go, this pie always delivers.

This year, I substituted evaporated milk with coconut cream for y’all dairy-free friends. The texture and taste is largely the same, and more importantly, everyone can have a slice 🙂 !
