look at that.

this is my apple pie recipe, part 3 of the spring breakers challenge! if you are looking for a healthier version of apple pie, this is it. and this is amazing. it wasn’t that hard to make, and it was loved by everybody.
it was also served a la mode! Vanilla ice cream recipe coming soon ;)
for the crust
2-3/4c all purpose flour
1/2c coconut oil
1tsp of salt
for the filling
2-3 cups of chopped (and peeled, optional) apples
2tbsp of brown sugar
1tbsp lemon juice
2tsp of cinnamon
first, we are starting with the dough/pie crust. you want to get the pan you are putting the pie in and put olive oil or a cooking spray to keep it from sticking to the pan. then add 1/8c of flour (not part of the 2-3/4c of flour in the ingredients.) and cover the pan evenly.
add the flour and the salt in a mixing bowl and mix together.
then add in the oil and the milk.
next, use your hands to mix it together into a firm dough.
place it on cling wrap and push it down a bit. then cover it with another piece of cling wrap and stick it in the freezer for a bit. after about 10 minutes, take it out, flatten it, and place it on the pan. flatten it out, but not too thin so it won’t break.
cut out the extra pieces of dough and place those back on the cling wrap and into the fridge. in the freezer, stick the pan with the dough on it.
preheat the oven to 350F. and in the meantime, mix all the ingredients for the filling in a separate bowl.
take out the pie from the freezer, and the extra dough from the fridge. pour the apples and mixture onto the pan.
cut out thin strips from the dough and cover the apple pie. you can do the lattice stripes design or just a plain one. there are so many ways to decorate pie.
OPTIONAL BUT RECCOMENED. to get a golden color on the pie, mix one egg and a tablespoon of milk together and brush it on the dough on top of the pie. this way, the pie gets a golden color out of the oven.
Place it in the oven for an hour.
This pie is great for thanksgiving and for apple-pie-obssessed-grandparents haha.
we served it to everybody with a vanilla ice cream. recipe soon!
Hope you guys liked this recipe!
