MAKING

1) I use a pie shell from the health food store, for convenience.; they have ones in the frozen case. Occasionally, I just use whole wheat flour mixed with a small amount of spelt flour so it won't be so heavy. I use either coconut or rice oil for the molding - and add until the flour mixture is pliable. Mold into a pie pan.
2) I use organic apples; try to get the sweetest ones. I love when the honey crisps are in season but in this video I used gala's. Peel, core - and slice thinly the apples. To help them cook more evenly I steamed them about 1/2 hour so they would be soft already when going into the shell.
3) For the mixture I use a jam or jelly. Preferably as close to the flavor of the pie as possible (ex: peach jelly for peach pie). But since they don't have an apple jelly or jam that is natural with no sugar added, this time I used apricot - I like plum too. Mixed the apples with the jelly. You can also add raisins, cinnamon, chopped walnuts, shaved almonds - whatever you want - to the filling.
4) For the topping I used a rice cereal mixed with some shaved almonds and sweetened it with brown rice syrup. I also like pear sweet by wax orchards. Top the pie and place on a cookie sheet to catch the drippings.
5) Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour - to an hour and a half - based on the texture of the apples - soft to the fork.
