Adapted from Derrick's mom's recipe:
Derrick says, "I got the recipe my mom used for French Silk pie. I'm shocked. It's 1 pound butter, 1 cup sugar, 4 eggs, some squares of chocolate, and you just beat the hell out of it and refrigerate it with a pie crust and whipped cream."
The vegan reduced-fat version:
- 16 oz applesauce
- 1 cup sugar (read this first)
- 4 bananas
Pour into the pie crust of your choice; makes an 8" pie.
Refrigerate for at least 12 hours before eating.
Naturally you can taste the difference, but it's good enough that a non-vegan proceeded directly to the refrigerator for seconds without passing GO or collecting $200.
