Apple Pie

I tested this out with the family a few weeks ago as a trial run, although I used all whole spelt flour in the crust.  It was a hit.

Crust (from Spelt Healthy!):

2 cups white spelt flour

1 cup whole spelt flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp oil

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp water

Mix flours and salt, add oil, and “cut in” to make crumbs.  Then mix in water (don’t overmix).  Roll out on spelt flour covered surface into 2 crusts.

Filling:

5-6 cups peeled, sliced, cut up apples

1/3 cup maple syrup

1-2 Tbsp spelt flour

1-2 tsp cinnamon

1/4-1/2 tsp nutmeg

lemon juice (if apples have no flavour, or if you are trying to keep them from browning while you work)

Mix apples, syrup, and spices (if using lemon juice, sprinkle it over the apples as you go).  I eyeball my spices, and I like a lot of flavour in my pie.

Fill crust with apples, top with top crust, and mark holes for the air to escape.

Bake in preheated oven at 425 (400 if using a glass pie plate) for 10 minutes.

Turn down heat to 350 (325 if using a glass pie plate) and bake 40-45 minutes more, or until crust is lightly browned.
