In this post, I’ll show you how to make a quick and easy apple pie that doesn’ t taste like your old fashioned one.
And, if you’re a serious foodie, you can also make your own.
But, first, let’s talk about the ingredients.
I used the following apple pie filling: 1 cup of apple slices 2 tablespoons of apple sauce (or any combination of sweetener and spices) 1 cup shredded coconut (or a mixture of sweet and sour, if desired) 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste 3 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (or more to the taste) 2 cups of shredded coconut, soaked overnight (I used 2 cups, but you can use the same amount) 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, ground cloves, or ground cardamom to taste 2 cups applesauce (or 2 cups frozen applesauces) 2 ounces of unsweetened applesaucer 1 cup sliced walnuts, chopped 3 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, finely chopped Instructions Combine the applesauci and spices in a large bowl.
Add the apples and the remaining ingredients, then whisk well until well combined.
Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
Once chilled, remove from the fridge and gently peel the peel.
If you don’t have a stand mixer, you’ll need to use a spatula to scrape up the apples into a large, clean bowl.
Then, add the remaining coconut to the bowl and stir it to combine.
Finally, combine the remaining applesaucing and coconut in a small bowl, then pour the mixture into a 9×13 pan or baking dish, or into a muffin pan (or larger, pan) with a rim.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees, then remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
To assemble the crust, heat the butter and coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Add in the chopped walnuts and stir until the walnuts are starting to melt.
Add a few more tablespoons of coconut oil, then add the cilantro and stir.
Continue to stir, and then add in the sliced applesaucers.
Stir until the apples are well mixed and cooked through.
Add another tablespoon of coconut and stir well.
Cook the apple pie for another 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and bubbly.
Pour the apple sauce into a deep bowl, and toss the apples with the remaining tablespoon of oil.
Pour into the pie, filling it about 2/3 of the way full.
Pour in the remaining walnuts.
Top with the chopped cilantro.
Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, then cut into wedges and serve immediately.
