any good vegan recipes for French Silk or Key Lime Pie?

This is the best vegan key lime pie recipe ever. In fact, it's my favorite dessert. This recipe is so tasty that a famous vegetarian restaurant in the DC area (the Vegetable Garden) uses it, but it's simple enough to make at home:

Vegan Key Lime Pie

1 (12 1/3 ounce) package mori-nu firm silken tofu (I use lite)
8 ounces soy cream cheese
1/2 cup key lime juice
2 teaspoons freshly grated lime rind
2 (4 ounce) packages mori-nu mates vanilla pudding mix (must be this brand--it's made to go with the tofu)
1 tablespoon liquid sweetener, to taste (I use honey but that's not vegan!)
1 9 in.baked pastry shell or 9-inch graham cracker crust (I prefer graham)

1. Drain any excess water from the tofu.
2. Blend tofu and lime juice in a processor or blender until creamy and smooth.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients (except crust!), and blend again until smooth.
4. At this point, I had to transfer the mixture to a bowl and beat on high speed with an electric mixer, since it was too thick and stiff for my blender.
5. Pour the mixture into the crust and chill 2-3 hours or until firm.
6. This sets up very firm.
7. It also makes a great pudding or little tartlet filling for fancy desserts!

And this chocolate vegan silk pie is a classic. You can make it straight up, or add a little bit of cherry, orange, or almond extract for a nice twist. It's super easy, and no one will guess it has tofu:

Easy Chocolate Silk Pie

1 (12 oz) pkg tofu
12 oz chocolate, melted
1 tsp vanilla
8 inch prepared pie crust -- graham cracker or pastry

Puree tofu in processor (mixer may not blend as creamy). Add melted
chocolate and vanilla. Pour into prepared pie crust. Refrigerate.
