“This sounds really good. As a vegan, I can work around using egg in the 'filling,' but what about the crust? I am not good with baking. Any suggestions for using the right kind of egg replacer in the crust?”

jsarets on Feb 9, 2011 at 04:34:21

“The other way to go with this kind of pie crust (that only floats on top) is to use a modified biscuit dough. It can be made considerably more moist and therefore easier to roll out without getting tough because it has some chemical leavening. This is a good vegan biscuit-style pie dough:

4.75 oz AP flour (~1 cup)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1.5 oz chilled shortening (~3 Tbsp)
3 oz chilled water

Mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Cut in shortening with fingertips using a rubbing motion until crumbly. Add water and fold until just combined. Turn out onto floured surface. Kneed briefly, roll into a snake, and cut into 9 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 3 inch round. Arrange on top of the filling and bake for about 30 minutes. The rounds will puff up just slightly and turn light gold on top.

This dough also works well for pocket pies (turnovers, empanadas, etc.), but it doesn't work well for the bottom crust of a conventional pie. For that, my trick is to use vodka instead of water, because alcohol will moisten the dough and make it easier to roll without forming gluten and making it tough:

6 oz AP flour (~1.25 cup)
1/2 tsp salt
4 oz chilled shortening (~8 Tbsp)
1.5 oz chilled vodka (3 Tbsp)

Cut the shortening into 1/2" pieces. Mix dry ingredients in the food processor. Add 3 oz of shortening and pulse 5 times. Add remaining 1 oz of shortening and pulse 3 times. Evenly sprinkle on vodka and pulse another 5 times. Press dough into disk, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate one hour before rolling. This is a more traditional shortcrust pie dough, except it's a little bit easier to roll.”

“I've made canola oil pie crusts for vegans.
And there is also the classic Crisco shortening crust.
You can find the recipe on the back of Crisco or any other vegetable shortening.
Its not only vegan, but easier than butter for a first time crust maker.”

klanej on Feb 8, 2011 at 21:15:58

“You can make a great crust as follows:
* 1 1/2 cups flour (all purpose) - additional will be needed when rolling out for dusting board and rolling pin
* 3/4 teaspoons salt
* 1 tablespoons sugar
* 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon margarine (cut in cubes and kept nice and cold)
* 1/4 cup cold water
* 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1. Add the flour, sugar, and salt to the bowl and mix it around a bit with your fingertips
2. Form a well in the center and add the water (cold) and vinegar
3. Add the butter cubes and mix well with your hands. Try to mix in the liquid, but also break up the butter and get it combined with the flour
4. Once it's evenly mixed and has all come together, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least an hour”

“i'm sorry for your friends, but the story does not indicate the driver was under the influnece of alcohol in the story. it does say they were transporting marijuana, but does not say which drug they were under the influence of.

also, there is no on-the-spot legal test to determine if a driver is 'high' on marijuana. the drug is not water soluable like cocaine or alcohol, and thus gets stored in your fat cells and can show up on a drug test months after someone consumes the drug.

again, i truly am sorry for your friends, but i don't think the story you linked to proves the point you want it to.”

“If you think that every Catholic follows every rule in lockstep, without question, you are sadly misinformed.

So unless you can read minds, don't pretend to know what anyone else believes.”
