How to make your very own Vegan Lemon Pie With Ginger Cookie Crust

Who doesn’t love a deliciously lemon tangy pie on a lazy Sunday afternoon? I know I do.
Ingredients for the base:
225g ginger cookies.
60g melted margarine.

In a food process, blitz the biscuits till they resemble cookie crumbs.
Drizzle in the melted margarine and pulse until the mixture starts coming together.
Line a greased 20cm pie dish with the mixture, pop into the freezer while you make the filling.

Ingredients for the condensed milk:
1¼ cup milk powder.
¾ cup castor sugar.
½ hot water.
30g coconut oil.
¼ tsp salt.

Method for the condensed milk:
In your mixing bowl, mix the milk powder and salt.
In another bowl, mix the water, coconut oil and salt together.
Pour this into the milk powder mixture and mix until well combined.

Ingredients for the pie filling:

A batch of condensed milk.
½ cup lemon juice.
Zest of 1 lemon.
¼ tsp lemon essence.
250ml of whipped cream.

In your mixing bowl, mix the condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon essence until the mixture starts to thicken.
Fold in the lemon zest.
Whisk in the whipped cream.
Pour the pie filling into the pie crust.
Garnish with grated lemon zest.
Pop into the fridge to set overnight.

Most pies that I have come across lately contain gelatine in and gelatine is a no go on my vegan ingredient list, so is agar-agar powder. Well mainly agar powder, because I still have to get the feel of working with the powder.
I was searching the “Loving it Vegan,” website when I came across a recipe for an easy lemon pie with a ginger biscuit crust. I love ginger biscuit crusts, they are so easy to make and there is always a packet of ginger biscuits hiding out in the cupboard for emergencies lol.

Of course being me, I just read the word condense milk and I assumed I could use the store-bought one, but when Sunday came around and I got to prepping for the pie I discovered that I would have to make my own condensed milk as the recipe asked for a batch of the stuff and not a tin, how much is a batch? No getting around that option, but all in all, making vegan condensed milk from scratch is so easy and to tell you the truth it actually tastes better than the store-bought version.
