Instructions
  1. For the crust grind up the sandwich cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs.
  2. Add the melted vegan butter and process until it is even and resembles wet sand
  3. Press this mixture into an un-greased pie plate (9") or your un-greased 4" tart molds (6) and refrigerate until needed OR for a crispy pie shell, bake in a preheated 350F oven for 12-15 minutes to crisp
  4. Prepare the berry compote by cooking the berries over a medium heat with the optional sugar
  5. Stir often to avoid burning.
  6. The berries will start to break down and get syrup-y especially if you use frozen berries.
  7. If you are using fresh berries you may have to add a few tablespoons of water to help them cook down.
  8. After about 20-30 minutes the berry mixture will be broken down, syrup-y and starting to get thicker.
  9. Remove from heat and let cool (it will thicken as it cools)
  10. Prepare the custard by combining plant milk, sugar & cornstarch in a medium sauce pot over medium to high heat and bring to a boil stirring constantly to avoid scorching the bottom .
  11. Once it starts to bubble remove from the heat and add the vegan butter & the white chocolate, stir to melt evenly throughout.
  12. Add the vanilla extract.
  13. Pour into the prepare pie shell or the tart shells then refrigerate for about 20minutes to cool & set.
