The pie that I want to make me famous, because it’s the best combination of flavors that I’ve ever put together!



Crust – 

  • 1 1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup butter, cold
  • 3 Tbsp water

Filling – 

  • 45 apples, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp bourbon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


Crust – 

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together baking flour, salt, and baking powder
  3. Slowly add greek yogurt and butter, mix thoroughly
  4. Dough will still be crumbly here, so add 3 Tbsp cold water and mix. Depending on which gluten-free flour you use, you may need a little more water, so add slowly
  5. You want the dough to be homogeneously doughy (aka, you can slam the dough ball down on a table, and it sticks together)
  6. Roll dough out between two pieces of parchment paper / cling wrap until it’s about 1/3 inch thick
  7. Grease a pie pan with 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  8. Gently lay the crust into the pie pan (either 8 or 9 inches), and pinch the edges to make it look all pretty
  9. Par-bake the crust with some pie weights for 10 minutes
  10. After 10 minutes, remove from oven, and set aside

Filling – 

  1. Start by washing and coring apples
  2. Slice very thinly, and lie in pie pan skin-side-up
  3. In a small bowl, mix together bourbon, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and cinnamon
  4. Once all apples are arranged in the pan, pour the sauce over the top
  5. Bake at 350˚F for 40 minutes
  6. Top with whipped cream / vanilla ice cream, and enjoy!
