I wanted to make a homemade version of McDonald’s apple pie and it ended up tasting better than their pies. Here is the recipe for a serving of four.
As always, you can either use the ready-made pastry from the supermarkets if you’re not allergic to dairy or else look at my Avocado Oil pastry recipe here that is dairy-free. If you want to know how the homemade pastry is done, all you have to do is mix 1/3 cup of avocado oil, 2 cups of flour, some sprinkles of salt and sugar and mix it up together to make sure it doesn’t end up being dry & crumbly (you don’t want a collapsible pastry in there) by adding a few teaspoons at a time with rice milk or water – make sure you rest that homemade pastry dough once it’s done for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
While you’re waiting, it’s time to make the sauce of your homemade Apple Pie recipe that goes inside the foldable avocado oil pastry crust. I first peeled off the skin of a whole apple (doesn’t matter which size) before chopping them into small squares & put it onto a small saucepan filled with water where you will boil them in a low-medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Once the apples are soft after some time, put them onto a small bowl with a skimmer utensil while draining the boiled water from the saucepan away in a kitchen sink. Then mix some 1-2 teaspoons of corn starch & some lemon in a saucepan until there’s no lumps on the corn starch before heating it up again (low-medium setting) for another 2-3 minutes. After that, add the boiled apples onto the saucepan again and mix it up together with the sauce by turning off the heat where you now got your Apple Pie filling ready to go.
Now that the apple pie filling is ready alongside the rested pastry after an hour, roll the pastry dough to a decent thin size on your work bench before you add the apple filling in and fold the pastry dough by sealing it nice and tight where you will be placing it on a sausage roll maker machine for 30 minutes by flipping it over at the halfway cooking process. Once the pastry is nice and golden, cool these apple pies down for another 10 minutes so you don’t get a burnt tongue and they’re all ready to eat – how good!!
See it for yourself when you can go make your own McDonald’s style apple pie recipe that is dairy-free & delicious to eat at home.
