Doesn't that look DELICIOUS?!
Well, it really wasn't that great. Lol!
(Hence the "Yummy *Looking*" title! :D)
The other day we found this recipe for apple pie in our therapy handbook of approved foods we can eat, and decided to give it a try. Well... let's just say we were a little disappointed. I made the crust (it didn't really turn out quite like it should've!) and Sister #1 made the filling. The crust ended up being hard as a rock once the pie was finished (we forgot to cover it in foil) and it just wasn't the same as the good ole' apple pie we were hoping for. I thought I would go ahead and share the recipe anyway, though, in case you happen to be interested. ;) (Of course, we used all of our organic ingredients. :)
Apple Streusel Pie
aka: Yummy-Looking Apple Pie ;D
1- 9" Pie Crust (See below)
12 med. Green Apples, sliced thin
1/3 cup crude Brown Sugar or 1/4 cup honey
2 tsp. Cornstarch or Oat Flour
2-3 tsp. Lemon or Orange Juice
1/2 cup Dried Currants or chopped Dates
pinch Coriander, Mace, Allspice
Combine dry ingredients. Coat apples. Drizzle on honey (if used) and juice. Fill pie crust. Sprinkle on topping. Bake at 300-325 F for 1 hr 15 min or until apples are tender.
2/3 cup Oat Flour
3 tsp. Crude Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Honey or Maple Syrup
1 Cup Oat Flour
1/2 Cup Potato Flour
(or use more oat flour)
1 Cup Triticale or Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp. Honey or Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Warm Water
1 tsp. Baker's Yeast
Sprinkle yeast into warm water mixed with honey. When frothy add flour and mix well. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Knead on floured board for 5 min. Let rest for 10 min., roll out on floured board. Place in pie plate that has been thoroughly coated on the bottom with rolled oat flakes. Flute edge. Let rise for 15 min. Bake at 375 F for 20-25 min.
Now, dare I say...
Just kidding! :) It really wasn't too bad... considering it was the first time my sister and I ever made a pie. ;D
I'm sure it would've received an A+ for presentation. =) Ha Ha!
~ Have a blessed evening, everybody!
