I am baking a brownie bottom peanut butter pie for the first time. I am not able to have dairy cream and am wondering if substituting cool whip for the whipping cream will be an acceptable substitution. The whipping cream is mixed with creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar and cream cheese. I will also be substituting dairy cream cheese with Tofutti cream cheese. The Toffuti cream cheese contains some soybean oil & soy protein. I am hopeful I will still get a creamy filling that is not too oily and will hold together.

It should work fine. If it is a little too dry you can add a little more non dairy topping or creamer so it will press into the pan and hold together to bake. Good luck. Thanks for using as an expert Nellie Oehler
