- 1 cup unsalted butter or solid vegetable shortening
- 4-8 tablespoons water
- 2 ½ cups gluten free flour blend
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons kosher or fine sea salt
- 2 teaspoon Marukan Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- Cut the butter into ½ inch pieces and place in the freezer for 15–30 minutes.
- Add ice cubes to the water so it becomes very cold.
- In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse several times to combine. Add butter and vinegar and pulse until the mixture resembles a course meal with some pea-sized pieces of butter. With the machine running, add water, a little at a time, until the mixture starts to clump together. If you squeeze some of the mixture in your hand and it holds together, you have enough water.
- Divide the dough into two equal pieces, form into disks, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Can be made several days in advance.
- 2 ½ - 3 pounds apples , peeled, cored, and sliced into ¼ inch thick slices
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup gluten-free flour blend
- 2 tablespoons Marukan Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
- 1 egg , beaten
- 2 tablespoon coarse sugar
- Combine apples, sugars, four, vinegar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Let sit while rolling out the pie crusts.
- Remove the crusts from the refrigerator and let sit for about 10 minutes. Roll one of the doughs out between two sheets of waxed or parchment paper into a 12-inch circle. Transfer to a 9-inch pie pan and crimp the edges.
- Stir apples and spoon into the pie crust. Roll the second pie crust between two sheets of waxed or parchment paper into an even thickness of about ¼ inch. Cut out the dough into shapes using large cookie cutters (smaller shapes tend to brown too fast) and layer on top of the apple filling. Brush the top with beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Refrigerate the pie for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake pie for 20 minutes then reduce the oven temperature to 350°F and bake another 40 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. If the crust is browning too fast, tent loosely with foil.
- Let pie cool at least two hours before serving.
