Recipe notes

This pie works great with a store-bought graham cracker-crumb crust.

For a vegan option, use 2 cups ground walnuts and ¹/8 cup maple syrup (I used Runamok brand ginger root-infused maple syrup). Mix the nuts and maple syrup together, adding a bit more syrup if necessary. Firmly press into a greased pie plate, then refrigerate while assembling the filling.
