Notes on the Egg Free Pumpkin Pie
One of the most surprising things about this pie is that there is no refined sugar! I only use pure maple syrup to sweeten it. Amber syrup would be just fine, but I prefer using a darker variety for a more robust flavor. However, I do use powdered sugar in the whipped cream, but you could definitely substitute maple syrup there instead (just use a couple tablespoons). I also use agar powder as a vegan substitute for gelatin. Since there aren’t eggs in this recipe, the whole thing could be made vegan by substituting non-hydrogenated shortening for butter in the crust and using full fat coconut cream instead of whipping cream.
Wisconsin Wheat Whiskey
The odd part about Pumpkin Pie & Whiskey-Whipped Cream is that I voluntarily used whiskey. If you know me, you may be aware that I REALLY don’t like whiskey. One time I tasted a sip–okay, not even sip–of my husband’s and I was literally coughing a sputtering. Over a drop of whiskey on my tongue.
But last fall as I was scrolling through Pinterest, I saw tons of recipes for bourbon pumpkin pies. I had already baked my pie, but I thought it would be really yummy to add some to the whipped cream, like I did with Milk and Honey Chocolate Cupcakes. I consulted my cocktail-connoisseur sister, and the closest thing she had on hand was whiskey. We added a couple tablespoons to the whipped cream (one would have been sufficient), and it was really delicious! The cream and powdered sugar help mitigate the strength of the whiskey and makes for a flavorful, complex whipped cream.
