  5. Reduce temperature to 350°F, bake for another 50-55 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
  6. Cool completely. Serve or refrigerate. Enjoy!
TIP Dairy-free option: use ¼ cup plus 1 tbsp EarthBalance margarine (contains soy) or Spectrum shortening in place of butter.

* TIP Egg-free option: for best results, substitute Ener-G egg replacer in place of the eggs. Consistency of the pie will vary from original recipe, resulting in more of a firm pudding.

***TIP Dairy-free option: use ¼ cup Rice Dream non-dairy beverage (Original) or WestSoy Soymilk (Unsweetened Original) (contains soy).
