  • 3 cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter cold
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup water + 3 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4-5 apples peeled and chopped
  • ¼ cup roasted hatch chiles see notes
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 ounces melted butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • In a bowl, add apples, hatch chiles, cinnamon, melted butter, and sugar. Mix well.
  • In another bowl, add the flour and salt and whisk to blend.
  • Use a pastry blender to cut in the cold butter until your mixture is crumbly.
  • Add the cheese, egg, and butter and mix gently to form a dough ball.
  • Split the pie crust dough ball in half and place each on a piece of wax paper. Place another piece of wax paper over the dough and use a rolling pin to roll to ¼ inch thickness.
  • Place the first crust into a greased pie pan. Press the crust gently into the pan.
  • Dump the apple and hatch chile mixture into the pie pan.
  • Roll the second crust out and place over the apple mixture.
  • Use your fingers to pinch the top and bottom crust together, slowly working around the pie crust edges.
  • Take a knife and make 2-3 slits on the top to vent steam.
  • Bake at 350º F for 40-45 minutes until the crust is golden and the apples are cooked.
  • Remove from the oven and allow cooling.


  1. If you would like your pie less spicy, use fewer hatch chiles.
  2. I used fire-roasted hatch chiles, you can use canned green chiles if you don't have any hatch chiles on-hand.
  3. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  4. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  5. This pie will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
