Pumpkin Pie

I made pumpkin pie last weekend using a Joy of Cooking recipe and using MimicCream to sub for the condensed milk and it worked! I also added 1 Tablespoon of corn starch because I didn't trust it.
Friends told me it was the best pumpkin pie they'd had, even though they weren't fans before. Without the eggs you can really enjoy the pumpkin.
Too bad the pie was eaten before good photos could be obtained. This will have to do:

Alas, sometimes good food just can't wait for the perfect photo opportunity. With daylight savings over, it's tempting now to put my dinner in the fridge and photograph it in the morning. But that would be crazy...
It looks yummy! Eating eggs is yucky....

I'm intrigued by MimicCreme... I went to their website, and it looks like a supermarket near me will be carrying it soon- exciting! I've only started liking pumpkin pie after going vegan.

Thanks veggiegirl!
Vegan_noodle - I totally hear you on the difficulty taking photos these days!
Bazu - food fight also has the mimiccream. it's expensive, $5, there, so I assume it would be else where as well. The main ingredients are cashews and almonds. So I assume, being the good cook you are, you could make something similar. Add a bit of a thickener and call it good. that's what I was going to try with guar gum.

it looks like the mimicream has the additional thickener of rice starch. perhaps the secret ingredient.

$5 is steep if you just want to try it out for one recipe, but maybe this stuff has make-it-yourself-at-home potential.
