Vegan Apple Pie

Apple pie is the perfect desert. It's easy, sweet, savory, and delicious. Thanks to the baked cinnamon apples, it'll fill your house with a heavenly scent and make you even more excited to dig in. Apple pie is simple, so tweaking traditional recipes to craft a vegan-friendly option. This pie crust is made dairy free by using vegan butter-- the end result is no less delicious.

Preparing the pastry:

  1. Mix all the pastry ingredients in a medium size bowl or food processor. If the mixture is too crumbly, add some extra water and mix until it becomes a pliable dough. If the mixture is too wet, add a little more flour and mix again. Divide the pastry into 2 balls, wrap or cover in an airtight container and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Preparing the filling:

  1. Toss all ingredients in a bowl until combined and set aside.

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a 9 inch (23 cm) pie dish.
  2. Remove the pie dough from the fridge. If the dough is too cold, allow it to come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  3. On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll out one half of the pastry into a thin circle. It should be about 5 mm (¼ inch) thick. Transfer the pastry to your pie dish and press it against the base and sides to form a crust.
  4. Trim off the excess pastry and prick the bottom with a fork. Set aside.
  5. Layer all the apple pieces (and any excess juices) into the pie crust.
  6. On a floured surface, roll out the remaining half of the pastry into a thin circle. Transfer the pastry to your pie dish for the top crust. If you'd like to create a lattice design, cut your pastry into 1.5 cm (~½ inch) strips and layer them on your pie (refer to the video for a visual guide). Trim off the excess pastry from the pie.

    Glazing and baking your apple pie

    1. Combine the maple syrup and water in a small bowl. Brush the mixture on your unbaked pie.
    2. Bake the pie for 1 hour or until the surface is golden and the apples are tender. If your pastry is browning too quickly but your apples are not tender, reduce the oven to 160°C (320°F) and/or cover with aluminum foil.
    3. Slice and serve the apple pie with a few dollops of cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
