Apple Pie

I have been baking apple pies on my husband’s birthdays and other special occasions throughout the year for almost 20 years. I got really good at making them, but then I went primal. It’s been almost two years, but I finally have an Apple Pie that my husband likes. I pair warm apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger with a tender, flaky, buttery pie crust for a grain and refined-sugar free dessert I think you’ll love. You can make this dairy-free by using palm shortening instead of clarified butter in the pie crust.

Instructions
  1. Make the pie crust, doubling the recipe. Use half to fill the pie dish and keep the other half wrapped in plastic wrap in the refrigerator until ready to assemble pie.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 °F.
  3. Add the apples and lemon juice to a large bowl and stir to combine. Add 1/2 c coconut sugar, arrowroot starch, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and stir to combine.
  4. Take out the top of the pie crust and roll out on a piece of 12 x 12" parchment paper until it is 1" larger around than the pie dish and about 1/8" thick. Carefully flip the pie crust and parchment paper over on top of the pie dish and slowly peel off the parchment paper.
  5. Press together any tears, trim edges and flute as desired.
  6. Brush the beaten egg on top of the pie, then sprinkle 1 tbsp coconut sugar all over.
  7. Cut slits in the center of the pie then bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 °F, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for another 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and apples are tender.
