Homemade Apple Cinnamon Pie (With a Flaky Vegan Pie Crust) – Veganosity

Homemade Apple Cinnamon Pie

For this recipe, you’ll need:

For the crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter, cut into small pieces and chilled
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of ice water

For the filling:

  • 6 cups of thinly sliced and peeled apples
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter

Let’s get started:

  1. Begin by making the crust. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and salt.
  2. Using a pastry cutter or your hands, cut the chilled butter into the flour mixture until it resembles course sand.
  3. Sprinkle ice water over the mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until the dough begins to come together. If the dough is too dry, add more ice water a tablespoon at a time.
  4. Gather the dough into a ball and divide it into two equal pieces. Flatten each piece into a disk shape and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill the dough for at least one hour or overnight.
  5. While the dough is chilling, prepare the filling. In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt, and cornstarch. Mix until the apples are evenly coated.
  6. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  7. Take one of the disks of chilled dough and roll it out on a floured surface until it is the desired size for your pie dish. Place the dough in the dish and trim the edges.
  8. Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust.
  9. Take small pieces of the butter and distribute them evenly over the top of the apples.
  10. Roll out the second disk of dough and cut it into strips. Create a lattice pattern on top of the apple mixture.
  11. Bake the pie for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  12. Let the pie cool for a few minutes before serving.
