Instructions

preparation to make apple pie

  • seive or mix all the dry ingredients together - whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and salt.
  • add the olive oil and with your fingers mix the oil in the flour evenly to get a breadcrumb consistency. this step should be done properly and this results in giving a flaky texture to the crust. the whole mixture should look like breadcrumbs.
  • add water and just bind the whole mixture together. don't knead. gather everything and form a dough. don't over do.
  • peel, core and slice the apples.
  • mix the cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, demerara sugar and whole wheat flour into the apples.
  • preheat your oven.
  • grease your pie pan or pans with olive oil.

making apple pie

  • divide the dough into two or four equal parts depending on the size of your pie pans.
  • roll the divided parts of the dough on a dusted work surface.
  • cover the rolled pie crusts with a napkin so that they don't dry out.
  • place one of the rolled pie crust gently on a greased pan and press it towards the bottom and the edges.
  • arrange the apple slices with the filling evenly on the bottom pie crust.
  • top the apple slices with dots of butter or a few drops of olive oil.
  • cover the pan with another rolled pie crust and fold the edges of the top crust over and under the bottom edges. flute the edges.
  • you can also cut strips from the rolled dough and create a lattice pie crust.
  • cut through the top pie crust with a fork or knife from top so as to allow steam to pass whilst baking.
  • brush with soy milk or any milk and sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon powder on top.
  • bake the apple pies in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees C for 50-60 mins or till the crust has become golden and crisp.
  • serve the apple pie warm or when at room temperature.
  • you can refrigerate or freeze the pies. wrap the apple pies when they completely cool down in a cling film or store them in an air tight container and refrigerate or freeze.
