This is a great dessert to bring to parties and it’s sure to impress your vegan and non vegan friends alike. To be honest, I was waiting for an opportunity to make these so thank you for allowing me to indulge! If you’re in the mood for a different fruit you could alway replace the pears with strawberries or apples.

    This is so similar to the apple cheesecake I used to make before I became vegan. Mine had graham cracker crust, filling of cream cheese, sour cream and lemon, then canned fruit pie filling poured on top. I would love to try your version but for one problem. My boyfriend can’t have soy or tofu. He’s mostly vegetarian and is 100% supportive of my vegan lifestyle (he’s the chef and loves coming up with wonderful dishes for me). Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Hey Lee! I love using cashews in place of soy! I just put them in the food processor with a little vanilla almond milk and blend until the texture of tofu :)
