Ingredients
  

The Crust

  • 3 cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons butter cold!
  • 1 egg size large
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 egg for the egg wash

Apple Mixture

  • 3 ½ cups apples peeled and sliced
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350º F. Add your dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk to blend.
  • Add cold butter and use a pastry blender to cut in the butter. When you are done, your flour mixture should look like it has a lot of crumbles.
  • Add the wet ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix them into a pie crust dough ball.
  • Split the big dough ball in half and place it on flour-dusted wax paper.
  • Roll each crust to a circle shape. I rolled mine to around ¼ inch thickness.
  • In a bowl add your apple slices, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and melted butter. Mix well to coat all of the apples.
  • Place the bottom crust into the pie tin. Gently press it to the pie tin. Pour the apples inside and arrange them so they are evenly distributed.
  • Now it is time to make a lattice top crust. Don't worry, I will walk you through it. I also have a video at the top of the post to show you how!
  • Use a pizza wheel or sharp knife to cut strips in that second rolled pie crust.
  • Add strips of crust in one direction. To weave the crust, add a strip in the opposite direction, one at a time. Weave that in and out of the base strips of crust. (See the video below for a great visual to how to braid the crust!)
  • Mix an egg with 2 tablespoons of water and mix. Use this as an egg wash and brush it over the top crust. This will help it turn a nice golden brown.
  • Bake for 40 minutes until the top is golden and your apples are bubbly and soft. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!

Notes

  1. I used Cup4Cup gluten free flour blend. It is my favorite for pie crust. 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.
  2. Xanthan gum - If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter.
  4. It is optional to peel the apples.
  5. I prefer tart apples like Pink Lady and Granny Smith Apples to make pie.
  6. This pie will keep up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
