Best Pie in the World

hat, smile, happy
I've promised some friends the recipe for the best pie in the world -- rich, chocolatey, and even vegan, it's VeganMania's Chocolate Pecan Pie with Booze.

Ingredients
Note: This recipe is incredibly flexible and forgiving, just like the perfect girlfriend. Make substitutions at will.
  • 1 1/2 cups graham crumbs, or oatmeal cookie crumbs, or gluten-free digestive biscuit crumbs, or, or...
  • 1/3 cup melted margarine, or butter if you want to use dairy
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 cup non-dairy chocolate chips, or coarsely chopped chocolate bar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, or brown rice syrup, or corn syrup, or treacle, or, or...
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua, or Grand Marnier, or bourbon, or rum, or, or...(optional)
  • 4 tbsp soy milk
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch, or tapioca starch, or arrowroot
  • 2 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
Directions

Preheat your oven to 350. Mix the cookie crumbs with the melted margarine and press into a 9" pie plate, all along the bottom and sides. Bake for ten minutes, then remove from the oven.

While the pie crust is baking, whisk together the soymilk and starch until frothy. Whisk in the syrup and molasses, booze and salt. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour into the pie shell, and bake 40-45 minutes.

Let cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Very rich, so slice thinly!
