Begin by boiling the sweet potatoes.
At the same time, add the Silk® milk to a medium saucepan and over medium heat, reduce it by about 60%. It should look more like cream than milk at this point. A good indicator is when you can use a spatula and when you scrape the bottom, you can see the pan. It will thicken more as it cools.
To prepare the flax "egg", simply combine ground flax with Silk® Almondmilk and allow to sit in the refrigerator. It will thicken and become gelatinous just like an egg.
Next, let's prepare the pie dough. I like to use a food processor which makes easy and quick work of getting things combined.
Place all ingredients (except the ice water) into the processor and pulse until coarse crumbs form.
Slow add one Tablespoon at a time through the feed tube. You may not need it all. The dough should just come together. Do not overwork the dough.
Wrap in plastic and chill while you prepare the filling.
In a clean bowl, add the sweet potatoes to the food processor.
Add the margarine, sugar, nutmeg, flax "egg" and vanilla. Process until very smooth.
Lastly, add the baking powder and the evaporated Silk® Almondmilk.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough and if desired, make cutouts with the remaining dough.
Place the filling in before decorating. You could also just crimp the edges of the dough. If making decorations, keep a close eye so they don't burn. I don't brush them, but you could use some of your Silk® Almondmilk and sprinkle with sugar. Again, take care not to burn those edges.
Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes. If you need to cover the decorated edges, you can do so with foil.
The pie should be set, a knife inserted coming clean. The top will be lightly browned.
Cool to room temperature and chill, if desired, before serving.
Top with coconut whipped cream, vegan marshmallows or pecan streusel topping.
