Description

A classic apple pie, offering all the sweet and spice that you crave when you think of apple pie.


Scale

Ingredients

  • pie crust for a 2 crust pie
  • 8 apples, cored, peeled, and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbs flour, plus a little to dust the bottom crust
  • 3/4 to 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 large lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tsp vegan butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place rack in the center of the oven.
  2. Prepare the pie crust. Roll out the bottom crust and place it in a 9 or 10-inch pie plate with crust overlapping the edges. Dust the bottom with a little flour. Place in the fridge while preparing the filling.
  3. Toss the apple slices with the lemon and zest in a large bowl. This will keep them from browning once prepared.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the sugar, flour, spices, salt and cornstarch. Add to the apples and toss until well and evenly coated.
  5. Fill the prepared bottom crust with the apples, distributing evenly and dot with the vegan butter. Don’t be alarmed if the pile is high. It will reduce a bit as it cooks. Pour any liquid and spices on top if there is some remaining in the bottom of the bowl.
  6. Roll out the top crust. Before placing it on the top, use a pastry brush to wet the edges of the bottom crust where they will meet on the pie plate rim.
  7. Place the top crust on the pie. With a knife, cut around the perimeter of the pie plate and crimp the crusts together with the tines of a fork.
  8. Cut 4 or 5 air vents (about 1 inch each) in the top crust to release the steam as the pie cooks.
  9. Place the pie on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Without opening the oven door, reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and continue baking for 40 minutes.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
