Seive or mix all the dry ingredients together - whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and salt.
Add the olive oil and with your finger tips combine 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 in parts binding the whole mixture together. Don't knead. Gather everything and form a dough.
Making apple pie filling
Peel, core and slice the apples.
Mix the ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, demerara sugar and whole wheat flour into the apples.
Preheat your oven at 180 degrees celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit) for 15 minutes.
Grease your pie pan with olive oil.
Divide the dough into two or four equal parts depending on the size of your pie pans.
Take one portion of the dough on a dusted work surface. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into an even layer that is about ¼ inch thick.
Place one of the rolled pie crust gently on the greased pan and press it towards the bottom and the sides.
Arrange the apple filling evenly on the bottom pie crust.
Top the apple slices with a few drops of olive oil or dots of vegan butter.
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.
Cut through the top pie crust with a fork or knife from top so as to allow steam to pass while baking.
You can also cut strips from the rolled dough and create a lattice pie crust as shown in the video below.
Brush with soy milk or any nut milk and sprinkle raw sugar and ground cinnamon from the top.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit) for 50 to 60 minutes or until 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.
Apples: Any sweet tasting or a tart-sweet apples work great in an apple pie without it becoming a mush. I personally like sweet apples. Some good apple choices are Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Honeycrisp, Braeburn and Pink Lady. For the Indian variety of apples, use Shimla, Kashmir or Kinnaur apples. You can always mix and match two to three varieties of apples.
Demerara sugar: You can add powdered jaggery, maple syrup, coconut sugar, raw sugar or palm sugar or brown sugar.
Fats: Sunflower oil can be added instead of olive oil. You can also use a neutral flavored oil. If you want to add butter, then do check my detailed All Butter Pie Crust Recipe.
Flour: You can use whole wheat flour completely in the recipe. There will be some denseness in the texture of the crust but the taste will be good. You will need to add some more water while making the crust dough as whole wheat flour requires more water.
Scaling: You can halve or double the recipe easily.
