Gluten Free Apple Pie

As an active member of The Orchard at Tesco panel I have got money off coupons to try the new farm brands from Tesco.
Apple season is nearly here so I started with an early apple pie. This is a gluten free and dairy free version.


To the pastry you will need:

-300g dairy free spread at room temperature
-Fry Light oil spray for greasing the baking tin

To the filling you will need:


Start with the pastry.

Combine egg yolks; spread and caster sugar together with a wooden spoon.

Add the gluten free flour and mix in with your hands.

Put the pastry in the fridge – very important!
Do not be tempted to use more liquid ingredients - your pastry must be firm!

Peel, core and grate apples. Mix in caster sugar and cinnamon.

Grease the baking tin with oil spray.

Rub and push 2/3 of the pastry into the baking tin.

It is harder to work with gluten free ingredients and rolled pastry does not hold together. It is why I rub & push and use squares & pastry cutters later.

Spread the apple filling evenly.

Roll and square cut the remaining pastry. Make a nice pastry patchwork on the apple filling. You can use even pastry cutters.

Bake on 180 degree for 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar when it is still hot.
