My new organic vegan apple pie recipe is healthier than the Betty Crocker version I grew up with, with no animals products, some white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour, and 25% less sugar. These changes improve the flavor, letting you taste the apples and the crust.
This juicy and fragrant organic pie costs just $1.23 cents a slice (one-eighth) or $9.83 for the whole pie, including the cost of the Sneaky Wheat Vegan Pie Crust. Yes, that means you can bake a whole pie for about the cost of a slice at a restaurant. And that restaurant pie will likely use conventionally grown apples and other ingredients. What a delicious bargain!
I’m so happy that I figured out how to make pie crust without butter so I can make pies again! What a way to celebrate Pi Day (March 14 or 3.14).
[Update June 2019: I originally figured six slices per pie, but my Taster and I found that was just too much. I’ve also switched to organic Miyoko’s Vegan Butter instead of less-expensive but not organic Earth Balance Buttery Sticks. The cost and nutritional information now reflect these changes.]
