Apple Pie Ingredients:

  1. 8-10 medium large apples (enough for 6 cups of apple slices)
  2. 1/4 to 1 cup sugar (according to preference and sweetness of the apples. The tarter the apple, the more sugar is needed)
  3. Optional: 1/4 - 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  4. 1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
  5. 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  6. 1 double recipe Vegan Pie Crust

Besides an oven, you'll need:

  • 9 or 10 inch, deep dish, glass or ceramic pie pan
  • A veggie peeler, and a sharp paring knife
  • A heavy wooden or marble rolling pin, something like this
  • A sturdy pastry blender with flat blades, not wires. Here's a good example. Here's another one. You can use two knives, or a fork, but it's laborious
  • A couple of large bowls

  1. Prepare pie crust, wrap tightly and chill for 1/2 - 1 hour (no more!)
  2. Peel, quarter, and core the apples
  3. Slice each quarter into thin even slices
  4. Mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Gently stir into apples until well coated. Stir in lemon juice
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  6. Roll out top and bottom crusts, making the top one about 50% bigger
  7. Place apples in bottom pie crust. Cover with top crust, flute edges together, and use a knife to make several steam vents
  8. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes and then turn the oven down to 350. Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes
  9. The pie is done when the crust is golden and the contents are bubbling./li>
  10. Insert a fork gently into a steam vent to see if the apples are tender. If the crust is done but the apples are not, cover the pie with foil and bake another 10 minutes, until the apples are tender. Remove the foil when you remove the pie from the oven.
  11. Cool pie completely on a rack before serving. If you break down and eat it warm, the pie will be runny, but you probably won't care.
