Baker’s Tips

This pie is best if you choose an apple variety that is well suited to baking, such as Pink Lady, Jonathan, and so forth.

If crust is too sticky to work with, place in refrigerator for half an hour.

Crust Directions
  1. Cream together butter, almond paste and cream cheese.
  2. Add baking powder, honey, and vanilla; mix.
  3. Add cinnamon and flours; mix until blended.
  4. Press pastry crust into bottom of Pyrex pie pan (wax paper or parchment works nicely to help form crust).
  5. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until crust is slightly browned. While crust is baking, make filling.
Filling Directions
  1. In a bowl, mix together flours, cornstarch, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  2. Cut up butter and add to mix. Work butter into dry mixture until butter pieces are pea-sized.
  3. Once crust is baked, arrange sliced apples evenly inside of crust. Spoon filling mixture onto top of apples.
  4. Place tin-foil over the portion of crust edges that are exposed after pie is filled (to prevent burning).
  5. Bake filled crust at 375° for 60 minutes.
