Christmas pies come in all shapes and colors. A popular and traditional pie is the mince pie, a 2 to 3 in. mini pie filled with ďmincemeat.Ē (But donít fret, itís not really meat.) Mincemeat contains dried fruit such as raisins, cherries, and apples, along with different nuts like pecans. The pies became a tradition for Christmas during the 16th century, although they traditionally were filled with some shredded meat, the modern-day mince pies are mostly made with dried fruit. (Thank goodness!) Other popular, classic pies include apple, pecan, and pumpkin. For the more adventurous spirit, try a pie with sweet potato, coconut, or chocolate banana. From alternative flour such as coconut flour to raw crusts with cashews, these sweet vegan pies are made with unique ingredients that will leave your guests flabbergasted with surprise that itís completely dairy-free.
