Calling all dessert lovers! If you’re looking for a delicious treat to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further than this Vegan Apple Pie recipe. Made with fresh, crisp apples and a flaky, buttery crust, this dessert is the perfect way to indulge in a guilt-free treat.
To start, let’s gather our ingredients:
For the crust:
– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup vegan butter, chilled and cubed
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 6-8 tbsp cold water
For the filling:
– 6 cups sliced apples (about 6-8 apples)
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1 tbsp lemon juice
Now, let’s get baking!
Start by making the crust. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Add in the chilled vegan butter and use your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add in the cold water one tablespoon at a time, mixing until a dough forms. Form the dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
While the dough chills, preheat your oven to 375°F. In another large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. Mix until the apples are evenly coated.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and roll it out on a floured surface to fit your pie dish. Transfer the crust to your dish and trim any excess dough from the edges. Add the apple filling to the crust, using a spoon to evenly distribute it.
Now it’s time to add some personality to your pie! If you’re feeling creative, use cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes from the remaining dough and place them on top of the apples. This will add some extra flair to your finished product.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let the pie cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
This Vegan Apple Pie is the perfect way to celebrate fall, and it’s sure to be a hit among all your friends and family. So go ahead, indulge in this delicious treat – you won’t regret it.
