This is the second of those delicious pies. Maple cream cheese base with cinnamon apples and chopped nuts for some texture and you have fall bliss in a crust.
Don’t skip the nuts. If you can’t have them, choose something else with some crunch – toasted pumpkin seeds or ginger chips would work.
My mom baked the pies following my instructions (we had to throw away a recipe of pie crust because she added too much water and didn’t listen to me) and we had fun making the decisions together. I didn’t change my pie crust recipe at all, except for this time I had a food processor at my disposal. If you want to make the pie by hand, my original pie recipes have the instructions.
|Gluten Free Maple Apple Cream Cheese Pie||
- For the crust
- 15 grams ground flax seeds
- 45 grams brown rice flour
- 45 grams sweet white sorghum flour
- 30 grams sweet rice flour
- 20 grams tapioca starch
- 20 grams corn starch
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick butter, frozen
- 1 tablespoon vodka, ice cold*
- 1/4 cup ice water*
- For the filling
- 1 8oz package cream cheese
- 1 egg
- 6 tablespoons grade b maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 lbs apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh nutmeg
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1 teaspoon tapioca starch
- In a food processor, combine the flours, salt and butter. Pulse until the mixture resembles sand.
- Add the vodka and then add the water a little bit at a time. You want to add water just until you can get the dough to start to come together. If you add too much water, your crust can get tough.
- Pat the dough into a 4″ disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
- Roll out the crust & ease it into a pie pan. Crimp the edges and pop it in the freezer.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the syrup, cream cheese, egg, vanilla and salt.
- In a large mixing bowl, toss the sliced apples with the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, pecans & tapioca starch.
- Take the pie crust out of the freezer and spread the cream cheese mixture in the bottom.
- Top with the apples and bake for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving
