Apple Pie

I found this recipe and was fully intent on making it a "pan pie" until I made the crust and it wasn't big enough to cover a 9x13 pan -- so I turned it into a regular pie.

yield: one 9.5" pie

2.5C all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2C vegetable oil
1 tsp maple syrup
2 egg yolks
1/3C cold water

1 tsp lemon juice
3/4C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp sea salt
5 large apples, cored, and thinly sliced (peeled if your heart desires)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9.5" pie plate.
  3. for crust: In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking powder.
  4. Add oil, mixing with a fork until crumbs form.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk maple syrup and egg yolks until smooth.
  6. Add egg mixture to flour mixture, mixing with a fork until crumbly.
  7. Add water until the mixture forms a ball of dough.
  8. Divide dough in half and roll out half of dough.
  9. Place in the bottom of pie plate.
  10. Set aside other half of dough.
  11. Place sliced apples into a medium bowl.
  12. Toss apples with lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  13. Place apple mixture into the pie crust.
  14. Roll out remaining crust dough.
  15. Place dough over apple filling, pinching edges to seal.
  16. Make a slit in the middle of the crust.
  17. Bake 45 minutes.
  18. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
  19. Enjoy!
