For the Pie Crust:

  • ½ cup cold vegan butter or coconut oil
  • ¼ cup ice-cold water
  • 1 tsp sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • A pinch of salt

For the Filling:

  • 6-7 medium-sized apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced

  • 2 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (Baker's Tip: Lemon juice is the secret to a perfectly balanced apple pie flavor!)
  • A dash of ground ginger (as recommended in our baker's tip)
  • A pinch of salt

Baker's Tip: The Importance of Lemon Juice and a Dash of Ginger

When it comes to making an exceptional apple pie, the secret lies in balancing sweetness and acidity. Lemon juice plays a vital role in achieving this balance. It not only enhances the natural flavors of the apples but also prevents them from turning brown. Additionally, a dash of ground ginger adds a subtle warmth and complexity to the pie's flavor profile, making it stand out from the rest.


For the Pie Crust:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free flour blend, sugar, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Cut in the cold vegan butter or coconut oil until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Gradually add ice-cold water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough comes together.
  4. Form the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

For the Filling:

  1. In a separate bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, ginger, and a pinch of salt. Mix until the apples are evenly coated.

Assembling and Baking:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Roll out the chilled pie crust between two sheets of parchment paper.
  3. Carefully transfer the crust to a pie dish, trimming any excess dough.
  4. Add the apple filling to the pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  5. Cover the filling with a second layer of pie crust, either in a lattice pattern or as a full top crust, and seal the edges.
  6. If desired, brush the top crust with a bit of almond milk for a golden finish.
  7. Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown, and the filling is bubbling.
  8. Allow the pie to cool before serving, and enjoy the flavors of fall and Thanksgiving in every bite!
