Recipe by Lindsey Lawrence
This recipe came from "How it all Vegan" and it turned out beatifully. When I made this pie, I made two pie crusts in order to have enough to make a lattice for the top. It was oh so pretty! I found that the wheat flour thickens up the filling--the first time I made this pie, it was very liquidy, but still yummy. Enjoy and happy cooking.

SUCH a fantastic recipe. My husband is a pie expert (he is not vegan) and said it was really good pie. I also found the corn starch/arrowroot mixture way too thick and added (by feel) more water. The pie still turned out great i.e. not too thick and not too runny. I am making another pie as I write this. Oh, and the pie crust of yours was also amazing. I used vegan Earth Balance instead of shortening. Thank you. This is a keeper!
