Homemade apple cinnamon pie with the flakiest vegan pie crust this side of Iowa; because, who’s better at making apple pies than a Midwest farmer’s daughter?
Okay, I’m not the daughter of a Midwest farmer, but I am the daughter of a born and raised Midwesterner, and I make a pretty dang good pie.
Full disclosure: I used to buy ready-made pie crust, you know, the kind that’s loaded with hydrogenated oil, or lard. Gross! Why?
Thankfully, I worked my derriere off and mastered the art of making pie crust, and I’m going to share my secret with you, because you’re my friend and you deserve the best. Take a look at my pie crust recipe with a step by step video tutorial. Just click here.
The apple pie part of apple pie is easy. All you’ll need to do is core and peel about ten apples, mix in some cinnamon sugar and a little lemon juice, and sauté them in some coconut oil until they’re soft. Then put them in the pie pan lined with the delicious crust that you made from scratch, cover the apples with a lattice top or a solid pie crust (be sure to cut a few slits in the crust so the steam can escape), and bake until it’s golden brown.
To brown the pie crust you can brush it with a little melted vegan butter or olive oil and sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top, then bake for five to ten minutes.
That’s it. How simple is that?
If you think that you’re going to need one more pie for your Thanksgiving feast, make this. It’s so easy, it’s a crowd favorite, and as far as pies and dessert goes, it’s fairly healthy too!
Have a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!
