Gluten Free Apple Pie

Gluten Free Apple Pie

What is your favorite dish?  Mine is always the apple pie, and I make a mean apple pie if I do say so myself 🙂  Unfortunately, this year I had to give up gluten, so I have been attempting to replace all my favorite thanksgiving dishes non Gluten-Free (GF) items.  So here is my new pie recipe!  See?  A blessing!  I did not have to give up any of my favorite treats this year.

Pie Dough:   (MUST FREEZE ONE HOUR)

  1. 2 Stick–Butter (salted or unsalted, doesn’t matter)
  2. 2 & 1/2 C —GF All-Purpose flour
  3. 4 TBSP– Sugar (you can add up to 1 tsp. more for additional sweetness)
  4. 1/4 tsp.–Salt (only add this if you use unsalted butter)
  5. 4 TBSP –Cold Water

Directions: Make enough dough for top & bottom crust.

  1. Put the water in the refrigerator to be getting cold
  2. Mix together the Flour, Sugar, and Salt.
  3. Cut butter into smaller chunks and add to mixture.
  4. Put mixture in food processor and  Pulse 8-9 times until only small pea-sized pits of butter are left.
  5. Run the food processor and add in Water slowly until mixture starts clumping (you may not need all the water).
  6. Put dough in a Ziploc bag (gallon sized) and shape into a tight ball.
  7. Freeze for 1 hour or more.  Take out and Roll!

APPLE PIE (COOKS 40-45 Minutes)

  1. 4 Medium sized Apples sliced and cored (5 if small apples)–you don’t have to peel them, just slice them and take out the cores.
  2. 2 TBSP–GF All-Purpose Flour
  3. 2 tsp–Cinnamon
  4. 1/4 tsp–Nutmeg
  5. 1/4 tsp– Allspice (Ground)
  6. 1 C–Sugar
  7. 1/2 Stick of Butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (Maybe 400 for hotter ovens)
  2. Soften the butter (if frozen/too cold, leave out for a while or nuke in the microwave for about 15 second).  You don’t want it liquid, just softened enough to mix in.
  3. Combine Sugar, Flour, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Allspice in a large bowl.
  4. Add butter and mash it into the mix until spread around.  Butter does not have to be completely combined, leave chunks in.
  5. Add apples and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  6. Pour into pie dough evenly.
  7. Cook for 40-45 minutes, until the top is slightly browned.  However, you need to watch it, it tends to cook quickly due to the lack of gluten products.
  8. CUT AND SERVE!  Ice Cream makes a great supplementary dish.  🙂

Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving!
