Pie Crust (1 crust):




Make the Crust:

  • Place the flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor fitted with an “S” blade and pulse to combine.
  • Add the butter (or earth balance) and cold water and process until the mixture resembles a coarse meal, begins to stick together, and holds together when pinched. 
  • Remove dough from processor (will be crumbly) and form into a ball.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or overnight.

Make the Crumb Topping :

  • In a small bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt until combined.
  • Cut in butter with a fork, a pastry cutter, or your hands until crumbly.
  • Set aside.

Make the filling:

  • Place your peeled and cored apples in a microwave safe dish and heat for 5 minutes, until apples are slightly soft to the touch.
  • While apples are in the microwave, in a small bowl, mix together sugar, flour cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Once apples are finished cooking in the microwave, drain any excess water.
  • Add ½ of the dry mixture to the soft apples and stir to coat the apples.
  • Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until the apples are evenly coated.

Putting it all together:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove crust from refrigerator and roll into a circle, about ¼ to ½ inches thick. (if it has been refrigerated overnight you will need to let it sit on the counter at room temperature until it is pliable).
  • Gently place crust into pie plate, forming it to look how you would like!
  • Pour filling into unbaked pie crust.
  • Use your hands to evenly sprinkle the crumb topping over the filling.
  • Place a pie crust shield or aluminum foil over the outer crust of your pie to protect it from burning. Remove shield in the last 10-15 minutes of baking if it doesn’t begin to brown under the shield)
  • Bake your pie in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, or until the filling begins to bubble and the top is lightly browned.
  • Let cool for at least 1 hour and dig in!
