Apple Streusel Pie

This is my grandmothers recipe which I’ve used for many many years and has been veganized. I let this one get a little dark on the top, but it will still taste just fine.

Dutch Apple Pie

Vegan Dutch Apple Pie

Filling Ingredients
6 large apples (or 7 medium sized), peeled and sliced (I prefer Granny Smiths)
3 Tbs vegan margarine
1/4-1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 deep dish pie crush (make your own or just buy one)

Topping Ingredients
3/4 cup unbleached flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
6 Tbsp vegan margarine

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Poke holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork and blind bake the crust for about 9-10 minutes. Take out of the oven and set aside.

Preheat oven to 450 F.

Topping: Mix the flour, cinnamin, and brown sugar. With a fork or pastry cutter, work in the butter till it becomes incorporated and crumbly. Set aside.

Filling: Melt the butter in a large pot. Add the apples and stir to coat. Cook for about a minute or two until they just start to soften a little. Stir in the sugar and the cinnamon.

With a slotted spoon, move the apples to the pie crust, leaving behind the juices (they will make the pie soggy). Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon if you wish. Sprinkle/pat the topping over the apples.

Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake another 15. You may need to add a foil collar around the edge of the crust after the first 15 minutes if the crust starts browning too quickly.

Cool and eat with some vegan vanilla ice cream.

  2. Awww, that's so nice.

    I think next time I make this I might try prebaking the crust. I think its good either way.

    When I made this recipe I had some extra apple slices left in the pot with all those juices – I added a little more cinnamon to it and had warm cinnamon apples that I added on top of Vegan Ice Cream for my Husband – he LOVED it!
    This was a really good 2 in 1 recipe! =D

  4. For MOFO this month, I thought it might be fun to look back through my old entries and pick out my favorites; recipes we really loved or recipes we keep coming back to week after week. I sadly don't have pics for all of them. I guess I'll have to make i
