Despite 23 years of real-world (and kitchen) experience, I admit that I just recently looked up what Crisco actually is. I’ve long suspected that it was something I couldn’t eat, made from animal souls or something of that nature. But apparently this is not only a vegan but also a kosher product. Quelle suprise!
These pictures come from Tasmia out at McGill in Montreal, who baked a vegan pie for her household (incl a vegan roomate) back on March 14 (3.14)—Pi day! And what better type of pie to make than a Pi Pie.
Truly artistic and imaginative… far beyond anything I could ever put together (although I long to jump on the VCTOTW bandwagon and paint pretty cupcakes). The recipes come from Crisco itself and can be found here (crust) and here (filling). Thanks Tasmia for the pics, and for uniting math and food!
