American Pie Apple Pie
American Pie, Apple, gluten free and crumbly…

Ingredients:

One gluten free pie crust.

For the filling:

7 organic apples, cored, peeled and sliced (a mix of sweet and tart)

scant 3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 Tbsp gluten free flour

1 Tbsp organic butter (non-dairy for vegan, such as Earth Balance)

For the crumble topping:

1 cup organic rolled oats

1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 cup roughly chopped pecans (or just do 1 cup almond meal)

1/3 cup packed organic cane sugar

pinch sea salt

4 Tbsp cold organic butter (non-dairy for vegan), or subsitute with olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Prep the apples. Add them to the bowl and toss with sugar, cinnamon and flour. Add to pie crust and top with 1 Tbsp butter, scored into little dots or strips.
  3. Next prep the topping. In the same bowl mix, add the crumble topping ingredients and mix with fingers or a pastry cutter until crumbly. Then pour it over the pie, spreading it evenly to coat. Bake at 400 for 35-45 minutes, or until the pie is warm and bubbly and the top is golden brown. If you notice the crumble top getting too brown, simply top it with foil.
  4. Let rest for 30 minutes before slicing.
  5. Chow down on your american pie with your favorite beverage, be it hot or cold!
