Stevia Apple Pie | SweetLeaf®

This recipe is featured in our cookbook, Cooking with SweetLeaf Stevia®.

Ingredients:

Flaky Pastry Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter, chilled and diced
  • 1/2 cup ice water

Directions:

In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples, lemon juice, and SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Apricot Nectar Sweet Drops. In a separate bowl, combine SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg; add to apples and toss well to coat.

Fill pastry-lined 9-inch pie pan with apple mixture. Dot with butter.

Place second crust on top of pie filling, cut slits in top of crust to vent. Pinch the edges of the crust to seal both top and bottom crusts. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolk and milk. Brush mixture over top crust.

Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 40 to 45 minutes more, until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

Flaky Pastry Crust
Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry knife or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the ice water, a tablespoon at a time, until the crust mixture forms a ball. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Sprinkle flour onto the rolling surface. Roll dough out then divide in half. Roll each half to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place crust in pie plate, pressing evenly into the bottom and sides. Makes two 9-inch pie crusts.
