Ingredients

  • For the crust:
  • 1 ¾ cups gluten-free flour, plus about ¼ extra for rolling out the crust*
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¾ cup butter (use vegan butter for dairy allergies)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • For the filling:
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 5 green apples, sliced thinly
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

Instructions

  1. Make the crust: In the base of a food processor fitted with the “S” blade or a dough blade, combine 1 ¾ cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of coconut sugar, sea salt, and butter. Process for 30-45 seconds, or until the dough starts to form.
  2. Add the eggs, one at a time, and process each one until it gets combined into the dough.
  3. Lastly, add the water, and process for about 15 more seconds.
  4. Turn off the food processor and use your hands or a spatula to remove the dough. Form the dough into two even balls and place them side by side in a large bowl. Set the bowl in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill. This will make the dough much easier to work with.
  5. Make the filling: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spray a glass pie dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, ½ cup coconut sugar, and arrowroot starch. Toss to combine.
  7. Roll out the crust: when you’re ready to assemble the pie, remove the dough from the refrigerator. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on a cutting board or flat surface, and lay one of the balls of dough on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough until it fits into your pie dish. Presss the dough evenly into the dish.
  8. Pour the apple mixture into the pie dish. Then, roll out the other ball of dough. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into long strips. Lay the strips on top of the apple mixture into a lattice pattern.
  9. Brush the egg white on top of the lattice work, and then sprinkle the teaspoon of white sugar on top.
  10. Bake the pie for 55 minutes, or until the top of the pie is golden brown, and the apple mixture is bubbling.
  11. Serve warm.

Notes

You can make the crust up to several days in advance. Just store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make the pie.

*Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 flour is my favorite.
