First, if you haven't already, head on over to learn how to make my Sexy Vegan Mama's Perfect Pie Crust.
Sexy Vegan Mama's Deep-Dish French Apple Pie
A 9.5" deep-dish pie pan
A single pie crust (See my recipe)
5 to 7 large (or 10 to 12 medium) Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced (you'll need about 12 cups after slicing)
1 1/2 c. evaporated cane juice crystals or vegan sugar
1/2 c. unbleached white flour
1 t. ground nutmeg
1 t. ground cinnamon
1 c. unbleached white flour
1/2 c. evaporated cane juice crystals or vegan sugar
1 stick vegan margarine
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Combine sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon, then stir into apple slices. Transfer sliced apples into prepared pie crust (the apples should form a small mountain - they cook down a lot when baking!).
|You can add a few dollops of vegan margarine if you like it extra-buttery.|
Prepare topping by combining flour and sugar, then cutting in margarine until crumbly.
Spread topping evenly over apples in pie shell. Bake 35 minutes, then cover entire top with foil and bake another 10 to 15 minutes.
This pie rocks served warm! The experts say so:
