About the Recipe

Simple fruit pie with no dairy. We make this with apples that have begun to get a little old, and it works well. It even comes out good when half of the apples are sweet apples. It's our son's favorite dessert.

Ingredients

1 unbaked pie crust

Filling

6 tart apples

1½ cup granulated sugar

¼ cup water

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

Topping

½ cup butter, margarine, or coconut fat, melted

1 cup flour

2 Tbsp granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup quick cooking oats

2 Tbsp cinnamon

Preparation

Prepare pie crust.

Peel and core apples, and slice into wedges. Place in saucepan with sugar and water. Bring water to a boil, then turn down heat. Cook slowly until apples are tender.

Add lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, mix well. Pour into 9-inch prepared crust.

Combine dry topping ingredients in a bowl. Add melted butter, margarine, or coconut fat, and combine with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over filling.

Bake at 300°F oven 1 hour.

Variations

  • For a more crust-like topping, crumble an additional half of crust recipe over the filling instead of the topping.
