While they are cooling, you are going to make your crust

    Do you think it could be made dairy free?

    I bet cold canned coconut milk would work great in place of the sheep’s yogurt. It is similar in texture when cold. If I tried this recipe that’s what I would use. I’ll let you know how it turns out when I make it.
