Vegan Apple Pie

I was wondering if someone had some really great vegan apple pie recipes? I think that for the most part there isn’t any meat or animal products in apple pie, but I decided I would ask here for some good vegan apple pie recipes. After looking around, I learned — I have never put anything animal related in my apple pies. I do NOT add margarine or butter to the filling like some folks do and I always used crisco for the pie crust. My recipe is super simple. Diced apples with enough sugar and cinnamon to taste plus about 2 tablespoons flour. Mix well, pour into your crisco pie crust, top with another crust, seal. Cut slits in the top crust. brush with water and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on the top crust. Bake till the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown. I am NOT vegan and been making my apple pies like that for over 50 years.

    Just use margarine in place of butter and you are golden (no pun intended).

    I am antivegan! I use butter in the crust, and cheese layered with the apples in the filling along with using butter blended with the flour and spices/sugar for tossing the apple slices in.

    If you don’t know if apple pie or anything else is actually “vegan” you should not be messing with it! You have have no clue what vegan means!

    My mother baked apple pies to die for. She’s almost 90 now, so I haven’t had one in years. One day, I asked her what her secret was for such good pies. She told me and I’ll tell you too. She said, first she uses Johnathan apples. They are the best for apple pie. Others taste OK, but nothing beats the Johnathan apples. Second she said she cooks the pie on a LOW heat for a long time, rather than like most recipes call for a HIGH heat for a short time. This results in SOFT apples rather than crunchy apples in the pie! I can’t give you exact temperature, but probably talking about 250 degrees rather than 350. Some apples are sweeter than others, so , the tricky part is knowing how much sugar to add so it’s sweet but not overly sweet. That just takes practice you’ll have to work at it.

    Most pastry recipes require some sort of animal fat – butter or lard, and egg.
