Best and Healthiest Apple Pie Ever!

posted in Food & Drink > Recipes
  • Ingredients:

    1/2 cup of whole grain pastry flour
    1/2 cup all purpose flour
    2 teaspoons sugar
    1/8 teaspoons salt
    4 tablespoons chopped butter
    2 tablespoon low fat buttermilk
    3 tablespoons ice water
    3 Golden Delicious apples
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1/3 cup dried cherries
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    1/8 tablespoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon honey
    1/4 teaspoon boiling water

  • To make the crust, put the whole-wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse 3 times to combine. Add the butter and pulse about 12 times, until you get a pebbly texture. In a small bowl, mix the buttermilk and ice water. Add the buttermilk-water mixture and pulse 3 to 5 times more to combine. Pat the dough into a 4-inch round and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, or make ahead and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

  • In the meantime, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, and prepare the filling. Core the apples and cut them into 1/4-inch slices. In a large bowl toss the apple slices with the lemon juice. Add the dried cherries then sprinkle in the cornstarch, brown sugar and cinnamon and toss until the apples are evenly coated. Set those aside.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the chilled dough into a large circle about 9 inches in diameter. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and draping the dough over the rolling pin, transfer it to the prepared baking sheet. If the dough breaks, patch it up with your fingers.

    Arrange the apple mixture in a mound in the center on the dough, leaving a 1 to 2-inch border. Fold the border over the filling. It will only cover the filling partially and does not need to be even.

  • Bake the pie at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes, and then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F, keeping the pie in the oven all the while, and bake for another 40 minutes, until the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown.

  • In a small bowl stir together the honey and boiling water to make a glaze. When the pie is done, remove it from the oven and brush the honey glaze all over the top of the fruit and crust. Move it to a plate to cool off. Cut into 6 wedges and serve warm or at room temperature. (I like warm!)

  • Thanks! Hope you like the pie (I love it!) and maybe check out some of my other stuff. This pie happens to be a lower-fat version, with only 230 calories per serving, but I think it's great. ❤️
