- 2 1/2 Cups of Flour ( GF optional)
- 1 Cup of butter ( Vegan butter optional)
- 3 Tbsp Sugar
- 1 Tsp of Salt
- 3-4 Tbsp of chilled water
- 1 bag of Apples
- 2 Tbsp of Cornstarch
- 1/2 Cup of Sugar
- 2 Tsp of Cinnamon
- 1/4-1/2 Tsp of Nutmeg
- 1/2 of Lemon- juiced
- Butter ( or vegan butter)
- brown sugar
Let’s start with the pie crust, as this requires a little extra time.
- Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut the butter into cubes and work it into the flour with your hands*.
- Add the chilled water gradually and knead the dough until it forms clumps. Divide your dough in half and form two balls (cover in a bowl or container and place in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes). * To avoid using your hands, combine all ingredients in a food processor.
- Begin by preheating the oven to 180°C.
- Peel, core, and thinly slice your apples while the oven is heating.
- Combine the apple slices, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Toss your slices and make sure they’re well coated.
We’re finally ready to make the pie!
- Grab a pie dish or cooking tray you wish to make your apple in and lightly grease it with butter.
Lightly flour your cleaned bench and roll out one of your dough balls. When your dough is slightly larger than your dish, gently press it into it, forming the base and sides.
Prick the bottom with a fork. (If you prefer a crispy base you can bake the base for 20 minutes prior)
- With your second ball of dough, cut into long strips of the top of the pie.
- Fill the dish with your apple mixture and lattice your pasty strips over the top.
- Glaze the top of your Apple pie with either remaining butter, milk and sprinkle with brown sugar (optional).
- Pop your apple pie in the oven for about 60 minutes or until golden brown.
- Once cooked, allow to slightly cook and serve with berries/whipped cream or ice cream (Dairy-free/ or Vegan options).
