In the course of looking through Bill Neal's wonderful book on Southern baking, Biscuits, Spoonbread & Sweet Potato Pie, I noticed a recipe for Three Seasons Pie. This amazing pie contains a mixture of green tomatoes (summer), pears (autumn), and cranberries (winter). It is gently flavored with fresh ginger, cloves, and orange zest. If you are looking for an unusual pie for a holiday dinner, here you have it.
Neal's recipe is already vegan, as long as one takes care to use a vegan pie crust, and vegan cookies for the topping. We had some little ginger cookies sitting around, which I crushed for the topping. Neal says to use a plain cookie - like a vanilla wafer or digestive - but the ginger was nice.
