Apple Pie

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook time: 30 minutes Serves: 4-6

This apple pie recipe is simple and quick to prepare. One of our favorite activities of the fall is visiting the apple orchard, but invariably we end up with far more apples than we ever possibly could eat—and we eat a lot of apples. Of course, I can’t help myself from climbing all the apple trees and collecting the biggest, choicest apples. And so begins Apple Pie Season!

You can have your apple pie, and you don’t need a single egg, a drop of oil, or even any butter!


  • 1 Simple Pie Crust
  • 8 cups peeled and sliced apples
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp corn starch + 4 tbsp of cold water
  • A dash of salt
  • A dash of allspice
  • Sprinkle with unrefined sugar (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Put all the apple slices in a pot with the sugar, syrup, lemon juice, water, and spices. Mix well and bring to boil.
  3. Mix the cornstarch and water thoroughly, and then add the cornstarch slurry to the pot. Mix well and reduce heat to a simmer until apples slightly reduce and sauce is thick.
  4. Line the pie pan with one of the two crusts from your Simple Pie Crust recipe. Pour filling into crust. Gently level.
  5. Take your other crust and make several cuts to allow steam to escape. This is your opportunity for whimsical design! Lay the crust over the top, crimping the edges and cutting off the excess.
  6. Sprinkle it with your unrefined sugar. (Optional)
  7. Bake for 30 minutes.
