Pumpkin Cheezecake Pie and Purple Carrots

Image hosted by
I used a vegan pumpkin cheezecake recipe that I found in this community.
I rarely (read: never) bake so I was apprehensive but it went well. My victory came the day after Thanksgiving when my parents and I sat around the table. I gave my more open-minded (foodwise) Mom a slice (topped with hip whip!) and she shared with my Dad. My Dad LOVED it. He said it was the best pumpkin pie he had ever had and he called me later that night after I left town to tell me again how good it was. I was so happy.

On a side note, I don't know why everyone seems to dislike Hip Whip so much. It was a little denser than dairy/chem whipped toppings, but tasty! I refrigerated mine (accidentally) for maybe eight hours before moving it back to the freezer, I don't know if that could have impacted it but I loved it for sure.

Oh yeah, and just because they're cool... organic PURPLE carrots! Hooray! (I roasted them with my tofurky).
