3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca, ground down in a spice grinder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
Dash of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups sugar
1.) Mix it all up and let stand for 30 minutes while the crust chills in the fridge.
Basic Dairy-Free Double Pie Crust Pastry
(Feel free to use a Pillsbury refrigerated crust, no shame in that.)
3 cups flour
1 cup shortening, sliced into chunks and frozen
1 teaspoon salt
1 T. sugar
Ice water (about 6-8 Tablespoons)
1.) Crust stresses me out, not sure why. I’ve made a bazillion pies and I still struggle. I use a food processor. If you have a pastry cutter and know how to use it, you’re probably better at pie making that I, so you can figure out how to adapt.
2.) Dump the flour, salt and sugar in a food processor and give it a few pulses to mix things up.
3.) Dump in half of the sliced shortening. Give it 8 short pulses.
4.) Dump in the rest of the shortening. Give it another 8 pulses.
5.) Spoon in 6 Tablespoons of ice water, give it another 8 pulses. Test the dough by pinching a bit of it together. If it seems really crumbly or dry and looks like it might hassle you while rolling it out, add the other 2 T. of water and give a few more pulses.
6.) Divide into two blobs, wrap in plastic wrap, form into a nice disk and refrigerate until you want to use it or at least an hour.
Building the Pie
3 cups plain soy creamer (about 1 1/2 pints)
20 regular marshmallows (about 1/2 bag)
1/3 cup sugar
2 T. oil ( I used avocado, coconut or canola would be fine)
1 t. vanilla
1.) Put the marshmallows in a big microwave safe bowl (I have an 8 cup Pyrex that is perfect for this)
2.) Heat for 1-2 minutes, until soft and puffy.
3.) Whisk the soft marshmallows with 1/2 cup soy creamer until smooth. You may have to return the mixture to the microwave for another minute or so to get the marshmallows to fully melt into the creamer.
4.) Add the remaining 2 1/2 cups of creamer, sugar, oil, & vanilla.
6.) Cool the mixture down in the freezer or refrigerator before pouring into an ice cream maker to freeze. I have a Cuisinart that is wonderful.
