My favorite way to spend my autumn birthday is a visit to our local apple orchard, followed by eating my favorite apple pie as prepared by my husband and daughter. This recipe is based on an AllRecipes submission called Grandma Ople's Apple Pie. Ople knew her stuff! The simple filling lets the apple flavor shine, while the crunchy, sugary topping adds a distinctive butterscotch candy taste and texture.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 (9-inch) pie
  • 1 batch dairy-free pastry for a 9-inch double crust pie (store-bought or homemade)
  • 8 tart firm apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup dairy-free buttery spread or sticks
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F.
  2. Add the cinnamon to the apples and toss to coat.
  3. Melt the butter alternative in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in the flour to form a paste. Whisk in the water, sugar, and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer until thickened to a syrup.
  4. Meanwhile, roll out the top and bottom pie crusts.
  5. Place the bottom crust in the pan. Fill the bottom crust with the apples.
  6. Cut the top crust into lattice strips. Place the lattice work crust on top of the pie (see Lattice Crust Tutorial).
  7. Gently pour the buttery sugar mixture over the pie. Spread it carefully all over.
  8. Bake the pie for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the pie is browned on top and the apples are tender.
  9. Let the pie cool completely before slicing and serving.
