Let me tell y’all about this amazing apple cinnamon pie recipe that I found. It’s made with the flakiest vegan pie crust ever and it’s the perfect balance of sweetness and spice. And the best part is, it’s easy to make!
First things first, preheat yo oven to 375°F. Then, grab yo ingredients:
– 6 cups of thinly sliced and peeled apples
– 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
– 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
– 1/4 teaspoon of allspice
– 1/4 teaspoon of ginger
– 1/4 cup of sugar
– 1/4 cup of flour
– 1/4 cup of vegan butter
– 2 tablespoons of almond milk
– Vegan pie crust
Combine the sliced apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, sugar, and flour in a large bowl. Mix everything together until the apples are evenly coated.
Next, place the vegan butter in a skillet over medium heat. Once it’s melted, add the apple mixture and sauté for about 5 minutes until the apples are slightly soft.
Now it’s time to roll out the pie crust. Sprinkle some flour onto yo work surface and roll out the pie crust to about 1/8 inch thickness. Carefully place the crust into yo pie dish and trim the edges.
Next, it’s time to add yo apple filling. Spoon the mixture into the pie crust, making sure it’s evenly distributed.
Top the pie with the second crust and seal the edges. Brush the top of the crust with the almond milk and cut 3-4 slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
Cover the edges of the crust with foiled or a pie crust shield if it starts to brown too quickly, and bake the pie for about 50-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
Now for the pièce de résistance, the homemade flaky vegan pie crust! This crust is the perfect accompaniment to the spiced apple filling. It’s made with a few simple ingredients, yet it’s so deliciously flaky and buttery.
To make the vegan pie crust, you’ll need:
– 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
– 1 teaspoon of salt
– 3/4 cup of cold vegan butter, cut into small pieces
– 1/4 cup of ice-cold water
Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add the cold vegan butter and combine until the mixture forms a coarse meal.
Gradually add the ice-cold water to the mixture, and stir until the dough comes together. Divide the dough into two equal parts and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
When yo ready to use the dough, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and use as directed in yo recipe.
Now that you know how to make this amazing apple cinnamon pie with a flaky vegan crust, you have to give it a try! Trust me, y’all won’t be disappointed.
