Dairy-Free Double Crust Apple Pie
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This pie uses the filling that my dad has made for years, but he adapted it from The Great American Pie Book. Please note that the Prep time does not include refrigeration time for the pie dough - you can make it up to a day ahead.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 (9-inch) pie
  • 1 Dairy-Free Buttery Pie Crust Recipe, chilled for at least 2 hours (makes 2 crusts; see post above for other options)
  • ¼ to ½ cup sugar, depending on the tartness of the apples and how sweet you like your pie (I use ¼ cup)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2½ pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons dairy-free buttery spread or sticks, cut into tiny pieces
  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F, and lightly grease a 9-inch pie pan.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out one of the pie dough disks. Use your pie pan to measure, so that it will fill out the pie pan with some overhang.
  3. Gently fold the rolled out dough in half and place it in one half of a prepared pie pan. Unfold so that the dough is now evenly in your pie pan. Gently press the dough into the pie pan. If it breaks at all, just patch it up!
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, and cinnamon.
  5. Add the apple slices, lemon juice, and dairy-free butter alternative.
  6. Mix all of the ingredients together until the apples are coated with the flour mixture.
  7. Place the filling into your prepared pie crust.
  8. Repeat Step 2 with the second disk of pie dough, and carefully transfer it to cover your pie, using the method in Step 3. Trim the edges of both dough layers (you can make cinnamon roll pinwheels with any excess dough), press them together to seal, and crimp. Cut slits (or shapes) in the top pie crust to allow steam to escape.
  9. Bake the pie for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350°F and bake for 30 minutes more.
  10. Remove the pie from the oven, and let it cool before slicing.
