Vegan MoFo Day 15: Japanese Fruit Pie

I associate Japanese Fruit Pie with my Great Aunt Cora. I have no idea why it is "Japanese" and the internet does not appear to know either. It is yet another member of the greater "Chess Pie" family, of which Pecan Pie is the best known variant.

To make this pie, I followed Bryanna Clark Grogan's new pecan pie recipe from World Vegan Feast. In place of the pecans in her recipe, I added the following:

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 t cider vinegar

Everything else (ingredients and directions) was true to the recipe in the book. As one would expect from a Bryanna recipe, the results were great!

Pecans, raisins AND coconut? It seems you have hit the jackpot.
