  1. Looks very interesting. Will try this weekend. Can i use powdered jaggery instead of demerara sugar?

  2. Hi Dassana, can I make one pie of eight inch tart with this recipe. Also can I use butter instead of olive oil?

    • yes lopamudra, you can make one large pie of 8 inch. yes, butter can be used instead of oil. make sure butter is cold and then cut it in cubes. add the cold butter to the four and with a knife cut the butter in the flour. or alternatively, with your fingertips break the butter in the flour till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. if the butter starts melting, then keep the bowl in the fridge till the butter solidifies.

  3. This recipe was really easy and the pie tasted very good. What would happen if I used only whole wheat instead of adding maida? Please advise.4 stars

    • tannaz, you can use only whole wheat flour too. a slight denseness will be there in the pie crust, but will still taste delicious. just add some more water while combining the crust dough as whole wheat flour needs more water.

  4. Hi..

    I am a very big fan of almost all recipes..😊
    First time planning to try the pie..

    I don’t have nutmeg…can you tell any replacement???

  5. I once again repeat what most of the other people have said in comments – the pie, especially the crust, turned out amazingly well …

    your recipes are very well written ( from a new cook’s point of view) – they are precise and in a proper order, without missing ingredients or even basic steps. And I find your use of healthy ingredients very encouraging.

    My only ‘complaint’, if I may say so, would be about the serving size – you mention 2-3 for this recipe but after I gave it to my kid, it turned out to be 1 serving only !! He was not ready to share it at all.5 stars

    • Thanks Sghosh for sharing this awesome feedback on Apple Pie. Glad to know that your kid liked it so much. Serving size becomes sometimes little tricky. Because it depends upon person appetite or whether it is served as a dessert or a main sweet snack.

    • Hello…a very interesting recipe.
      I wanted to ask that can we use any other oil instead of olive oil..or can we use butter too?

  6. This pie turned out absolutely fabulous!!! Though i had a bit of a problem with the crusty dough- it was a bit too dry and without adding a bit more water, it couldn’t have been ruled as it broke before the extra water. Bit overall, after that it turned out a hit!! I used green apples and added a bit more cinnamon than mentioned in the recipe, it was fab!!5 stars
