No Butter, No Rolling Pin, No Problem! Delicious Apple Pie

Using The Fruit Truck's apples I wanted to make a pie, and I wanted to make one quickly, but I wasn't at my own house, and I had very few ingredients available. I also didn't have a car, so we were working with very few options. That didn't stop me though. No butter, no rolling pin, no problem.

Here we go:

Crust

3 cups flour

Pinch of salt

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup milk (I actually didn't even have milk, shocker I know, so I used heavy whipping cream and a little water)


Filling

5-6 apples, sliced into cubes

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup flour

1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions:

- Prepare your pie crust in large bowl. Mix flour and salt. Add milk and vegetable oil.

- Stir together

- Gently knead it into a ball and divide into two parts

- Fit one piece into your pie plate

- Dice apples, or slice them, up to you

- Mix together with brown sugar, flour and cinnamon

- Spoon mixture into pie plate

- Top with second pie crust, I did a lattice in strips for ventilation, but if you don't do that make sure to cut a few slits in top

- I also brushed on an egg wash to give the pie some color, just crack an egg and brush he whites onto crust (optional)

- Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees then 30 minutes at 380 degrees

- Let cool and top with ice cream, Cool Whip or whipped cream


**Pie should be lightly browned and pie filling should be bubbling, if you use a clear pie plate, the crust should be light/medium brown on the bottom.

This pie is super easy, and I managed to make it with very few ingredients, and I also rolled all the dough by hand. It turned out for me, it can for you too!


Also, since it's fall and we have been watching a lot of Halloween themed shows on FOOD Network, we added a little orange food coloring to our whipped cream. For looks, I wouldn't reccomend it LOL, but it sure tasted good.
