Amazing Pecan Pie

What you need: 

1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons nondairy milk (I use soy)
2 egg substitutes (I use Bob's Red Mill substitute)
8 tablespoons vegan butter, melted (I use Earth Balance)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans
1 9" unbaked pie crust

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix ingredients. They come out watery.
2. Pour into the pie shell. Place on a cookie sheet and put into the oven for 20 minutes.
3. Reduce oven temperature to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 20 minutes or longer.
4. Check, center should be slightly soft, but if it seems too watery, bake for 20 more minutes.
Source of recipe: This recipe was inspired by a recipe I got from my mom, I've taken it, rewritten it, and vegan-ized it.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Thanks so much for the recipe... i made it with some non vegan ingredients (butter, egg) and followed the instructions otherwise and the result was great... next time, however i think i'll use only one egg... Sooooo gooood! and no crisco, or corn syrup, love it! i use the recipe of the "Best pie crust" http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=6310.0  with the variations suggested by dra88 for a sweet pie...

I have a question, I hope it doesn't seen dumb, but I've never made a pecan pie, and I'm wondering about the directions.  The pictures look like all the pecans are on the top, but the directions say to mix all the ingredients.  Do you mix just the liquid then put the pecans on top?  When do you do this, before baking or part way through?  Thank you so much, I'm really excited to try this!

Just mix everything. It's shallow, so the pecans stay near the top and float. Nothing special, it just works out. Enjoy!

OMFG! U have to try this recipe! Amazing! I brought it over for Easter and my family loved it... They couldn't believe it was vegan... I guess because all vegan food tastes "bad"?!?! I had to cook mine the extra 20 min. that was suggested.  I used Marie Calendars frozen pie crust... It's vegan!

I'm baking this right now, and it smells SO effin' good!!  Thank you so much for the recipe, man!  I also posted it on my facebook with credit to you - I think everyone who likes pie needs to see and make this!

Also, I made my own crust, as follows (in case anyone is interested)

1/2 cup melted futter (which is vegan butter, folks)
1 bag cinnamon graham crackers (you know when you get a box, it's split into 3 bags? crush one of 'em to powder)
1 small handful brown sugar

Mix it all together and press it into your pie pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes.

Put yer pie goo in and bake yer pie and then mangia!

Has anyone tried making this recipe with brown rice syrup? I know traditional versions of pecan pie call for Karo syrup, and brown rice syrup can be substituted for it. I'm southern, and I think my non-vegan family would kill me if my pecan pies did not turn out "gooey!"  ;) Is the consistency of the pie sticky like a traditional pecan pie? Thanks!

I haven't tried making it with brown rice syrup, but this recipe was adapted from (former Presidential Candidate) John Edwards' mom's award winning pecan pie recipe.  He's from North Carolina so take that for what it's worth.  Additionally, mangomamma, I see you're in Texas where the pecan is the state tree.  I grew up in Lubbock, and lived in Dallas and Houston each for a few years before moving to Oregon. And I probably wouldn't have posted this recipe if it wasn't as good as I remember.  Try it as it is, and I don't think you'll be disappointed.
