    This was super easy.

    I substituted egg yolk with 2tsp chia seeds mixed with 2 tbls water and let sit till gel forms.

    Also used nuttelex in place of butter for dairy allergy.

    Also honey in place of sugar on apples just because I had no sugar left.

    It tasted fantastic!

    Just made this and it was devine. My whole family loved it. Best apple pie ever!

    I’m not very experienced with pastry, but it was easy enough to work with and came back together perfectly to hide my mistakes.

    Delicious. Took it to work and it all went in about 3.5 seconds!

    OMG – best short crust for apple pie ever. My daughter was content to just eat the pastry. I rolled mine between two sheets of glad wrap. This way you can keep an eye on what your doing without having to keep lifting the grease proof paper up to check on thickness.

    Steph, I made this recipe into mini apple pies using my TM and white spelt flour. I made 8 mini pies which I put into a muffin tin. I already had some stewed apples which I added sultanas to. I only used 40gms of raw sugar in the pastry too. The apples are sweet enough for me.The pastry was super soft and I estimate I used an extra 100gms of spelt flour. I don’t know how to link up a pic for you but wanted to let you know that I tried this recipe, love apple pie but I do not buy commercial ones due to poor quality ingredients used and i also made an absolute mess with flour in the kitchen! Thanks for sharing. Jo
