I just wanted to post ANOTHER apple pie recipe. This recipe has different gluten free flours to create the crust. Previously, I posted a Sugar Kissed Apple Pie that just substituted all-purpose flour with Better Batter’s gluten free flour. If you don’t want to use a flour substitute, this recipe is great because it incorporates different flours that will give you a great taste to your crust!
There are a BUNCH of different flours! Don’t let that scare you!
- 3/4 cup potato starch flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 1/2 cup white rice flour
- 1/4 cup garbanzo and fava flour
- 1/4 cup sweet white sorghum flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 1 teaspoon guar gum
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 5 cups chopped peeled apples (5 medium)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
- Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray (without flour). In medium bowl, mix all flours, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt; set aside.
- In food processor, place egg, oil, 1/4 cup water, the vinegar, xanthan gum and guar gum. Cover; process 2 minutes. Add flour mixture. Cover; process 1 minute or until well mixed. Place 1 cup of dough in medium bowl. Stir in walnuts and 1/4 cup sugar; set aside. Press remaining dough (about 2 cups) in bottom and up side of pie plate.
- In 3-quart saucepan, place apples, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water, 1/8 teaspoon salt, the cinnamon and nutmeg. Heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- In small bowl, mix cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water until smooth. Add to apple mixture; cook and stir about 1 minute or until thickened. Pour filling into crust. Crumble walnut dough evenly over filling.
- Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until crust is medium brown and filling is bubbly. Cool at least 1 hour before serving.
There you go! Another great option for homemade apple pie!
