I didn’t have “Vegan Apple Pie” on my list of recipes to post on the blog this fall. However, as I previously mentioned, I made my coconut oil pie crust about 100 times and each time, felt like I needed to actually bake a pie to go with the crust. And to me, nothing’s really easier than throwing together an apple pie. I mean, once the crust is actually made. So after making this apple pie quite a few times, I figured that I might as well snap a few photos and share the simple recipe.
ALSO, in case you haven’t heard me mention it already 1,000 times, we planted some apple trees on our property earlier this year. They aren’t actually producing apples yet, and they don’t really look like they’ve grown all that much in the 9 months that we’ve had them BUT the lady promised me I’d get some apples in 2017. So, I guess we’ll see. I wanted to start perfecting my apple pie recipe for the many years that we have fresh apples coming out of our ears.
Another thing that I want to get good at is doing some of those fancy schmancy pie crust designs! The fanciest thing that I’ve ever attempted was a simple braided crust and that made me feel pretty cool. Next year, I’m going to try taking it to the next level!
To make this pie, once the crust is already made, we simple mix together the filling ingredients in a big bowl and then dump them into our crust.
The top crust can be as simple or as fancy as you want to make it. If you’re in a hurry or just can’t be bothered, you can simply lay the crust over top of the pie, crimp the edges, and then cut a few slits in the top to let the pie breathe.
Alternatively, you can do a lattice or maybe try for some of those fancy apple or leaf cutouts. Have fun with it!
But also, make it quickly so that you can hurry up and eat it! :D At least, that’s my motto.
If you haven’t made a homemade apple pie yet this fall, you really need to get on that! ;)
Alternatively, come on over to my house, I’ll give you a slice (plus send you home with all the leftovers that I’ve found myself with lately after starting to make recipe videos for 5 different clients- please help me with all this extra food!!).
