This holiday season I have been in the mood to bake. I made a delicious Sweet Potato Pie for Thanksgiving that was a big hit. However, I also wanted to make something with apples, similar to my Apple Crumble Muffins. I decided to prepare this apple pie with a crumb topping, which turned out exceptionally well.

Apple Pie with Crumb Topping

If you haven’t made apple pie, it is very easy to make. You can use my recipe for your crust, or use a store-bought one. This is my favorite store-bought Gluten-Free Vegan Pie Crust.

You can also use a variety of tart apples such as Jonagold, Melrose or Winesap and sweet apples in the recipe, such a Gala, Honeycrisp, Fuji, Braeburn. I used a blend of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg but you can substitute with a blend of cardamom and coriander for a cinnamon substitute.

If you don’t have non-dairy butter, then you can substitute with coconut oil (not melted) for the crust, you will find you might need more coconut oil more like 6-7 tablespoons, and add enough cold water to form into a dough.

You will notice that I baked my pie at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 10 minutes, the reason I slow-baked it was to prevent the topping from burning and to make sure the apples were cooked until tender and juicy.

We enjoyed the apple pie served with vegan vanilla ice cream.
