One of the two classic must-have pies at your Thanksgiving table other than apple pie.

Along with the crust, we made the filling dairy-free by using coconut condensed milk and cream to keep the creaminess.

What is Palm Shortening?

Palm shortening is made from palm oil, a tropical palm tree which is different from the coconut palm. Palm shortening is made with palm oil that has some of the unsaturated fats removed so that it is even more stable. Palm Shortening has a thick, luxurious texture that is perfect for baking. The purpose of palm shortening is to replace traditional shortening that contains trans fats from industrial processing.

Pastry vs Crumb Crusts

A traditional pastry crust requires flour, salt, sugar, butter, and iced cold water to bind it all. The technique is not as easy for beginners to get the perfect pastry crust. Pastry crust request extremely cold butter and to fold it so that it can be evenly distributed for the perfect flakiness. Pastry crusts are perfect for sweet and savory pies as well as having a longer bake time.

While crumb crusts are much simpler and don’t require much technique. They are more versatile with your crumb creation by using graham crackers, butter crackers to cookies such as Oreos or shortbread cookies. Crumb crusts are best for little to no baking kind of pies. Whichever you choose, there are endless possibilities! As for today, we will be using gluten-free graham crackers.



Pumpkins are a type of winter squash if you didn’t know. But in North America, it is popular around Halloween and Thanksgiving time. We know them best for their bright orange color exterior, but they also come in a variety of colors and sizes. Some of the benefits of pumpkins are that they are rich in Vitamin A as well as other vitamins and minerals, high in antioxidants that will fight free radicals in your body, boost immunity with the vitamin C it contains, and aids in heart health as well as promote healthy skin. Pumpkins are very easy to incorporate into your diet, as you can turn them into soups, sauce for your coffee, and even desserts like pumpkin pie! 



Coconuts can come in many forms from coconut water, milk, sugar, and oil. Coconut cream specifically helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol, reduces fat and builds muscles, as well as improving digestion. It is also a great alternative for those who are lactose intolerant and have an allergy to tree nuts.
