A confession. I have NEVER had a Little Debbie Creme Pie. That means I have no comparison. That's okay, because I can't imagine it would taste as good as this wonderful (and large) vegan version. Wow, it was delish!
I had to buy raisins especially for this recipe since I always use dried cranberries. I've never been a shortening user, but with Spectrum Naturals Organic Non-Hydrogenated Shortening there is no "yuck factor".
The recipe is from have your cake and vegan too by Kris Holechek. She 'did good'!
