Do you know what makes pies even sweeter? Not using dairy or eggs to make them. Cows’ and chickens’ reproductive systems are exploited for eggs and milk and most of these animals live miserable lives in factory farms until they’re considered “spent” and they’re slaughtered. But there’s no reason for pies to be a product of animal suffering. All of the following pies are 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free, which makes them taste even better.
Without further ado, here are some pies that would make your Nana smile:
