Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6-8
  • 5 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • ½ cup quinoa flour
  • ⅓ cup arrowroot flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon xanthum gum
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, separated
  • 1 cup butter, chilled and cut into chunks, plus ½ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons water, plus an additional 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • ¾ cup coconut palm sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, lightly whipped
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a pie pan with butter. Whisk brown rice flour, quinoa flour, arrowroot flour, salt, xanthum gum, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Using hands, mix 1 cup chilled butter chunks into the flour mixture until it starts to become doughy. Add 2 tablespoons of water, lemon juice, and maple syrup and continue to mix with fingers. Cut dough in half. Press half of the dough into the bottom of the greased pie pan. Set the other half of the crust dough aside.
  2. For the filling, melt ½ cup butter in a saucepan. Stir in 3 tablespoons almond flour, 2 tablespoons water, coconut palm sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Bring to a simmer. Reserve some of the sauce to pour over the crust right before baking. Take the main portion of the sauce and mix in a large bowl with the apple slices to coat them. Place apple mixture in the prepared crust, mounded slightly.
  3. Flatten out the second half of the dough, and cut into 6 strips. Place 3 strips horizontally and 3 strips vertically over the apples. Brush the egg over the top of the crust. If remaining sauce has thickened, heat on the stove for a minute or two until liquid. Gently pour the remaining sauce over the top crust. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool and enjoy. I actually like this best after being in the refrigerator overnight.
