Cookbook review: Vegan Pie in the Sky makes pie vegan, delicious, easy to make  »

Here are a few things to like about Vegan Pie In The Sky:

1. It’s the latest cookbook by awesome vegan mavens Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. Instant cred!

2. It comes in an adorable square shape.

3. It proves that your pies can have flaky crusts, delicious fillings, and be gorgeous baked goods without animal ingredients like butter or eggs.

Those are all pretty good selling points, I think, and plenty of reason why you should pick up VPITS, or perhaps give it to your favorite baker as a holiday gift. The book looks small, but it’s 75 (!) recipes that covers everything from making the perfect pie crust to filling said crust with deliciousness—including 18 chocolate pies!—to topping it off perfectly. As a bonus, many of the fillings are gluten-free, and you can always experiment to make the crusts gluten-free as well by using your favorite flour sub.

Look, what I’m saying is that I don’t even really like pie, and I still want to make all of these.┬áIf I haven’t convinced you yet, check out the four sample recipes on the Post Punk Kitchen site.
