holy mother of all apples, Single Serving Apple Pie With Butter Crust (V+GF) takes home the prize for the best. my husband and i absolutely could not stop eating this. while it is technically single serving, i offered him a couple of bites. the apple filling, the spices, the butter crust, i mean, there is nothing not to love.
the title just says it all, you have to try! my vegan butter crust is out of this world. i call it butter crust because of the buttery texture.
tbh, there’s not THAT much butter in the crust, just three melted tbsp, but trust me, you need all three.
nobody and i mean nobody wants raw apples in their apple pie, unless it is a raw pie that is.
to get these gems to soft, tender perfection, there’s a two step cooking process.
first, the apples are sautéed in coconut oil, spices, maple syrup and a little bit of dairy free milk. then, you bake them in a ramekin on top of that.
this step is really important to ensure the apples are not only cooked all the way through, but also buttery soft goodness to the point they almost fall apart!
oh my goodness, with the crust, it’s just divine. as far as apples, i went with the GOAT, honeycrisp.
you don’t have to use honeycrisp though, any will work. you only need one apple and the one i used was medium-large, but this also depends on the size of your ramekin.
you don’t want to overstuff the ramekin because then you will have some leakage with the filling.
i had a little bit, but all good because i just put a baking tray under the ramekin to catch anything.
the crust is SUPER easy to make by the way, like the easiest part. you will need gluten free baking flour.
i love Bob’s Red Mill GF baking flour, but you could probably just use GF all purpose flour and it should be fine.
disclaimer: i have not tried it with any other flour but i don’t foresee too much of a difference, the crust just might be more gummy.
