Whole Grain Crust
2cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
- Apple Pie
12 apples peel and cut into about 6 pieces
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
Preheat Oven to 350 F
Okay, folks, let's get started! Grab a big ol' bowl and whisk together your flour, rolled oats, Maple Syrup, and a pinch of salt. Now, drizzle in that oil and give it a good mix 'til everything's cozy and combined. Splash in some water, stir it up 'til it's all come together. Give it a quick knead to scoop up any stray dry bits. If it's still a tad dry, a few more drops of water should do the trick. Now, take that dough, split it in two, and shape 'em into two nice, flat discs. Pop 'em in the fridge until you're ready to work your magic!
Toss the apples with the maple syrup, cinnamon and flour
Sprinkle a little flour everywhere – on your hands, the counter, your rolling pin, and, of course, on that lovely dough. Now, take that dough and give it a roll-out session until it's a glorious 12-inch (30-cm) round, perfect for your 8-inch (20-cm) pie plate. Here's a little trick to make it even more joyful: fold that dough into quarters, gently lift it up, and unfold it over the pie plate. Now, it's time for the star of the show – those delicious apples!
Let's keep the joy rolling! Take that second disc and roll it out into a splendid 12-inch (30-cm) round. Gently lay it over those luscious apples. Now, for a touch of culinary love, trim and seal the edges with a flourish. Don't forget to give your pie some breathing room – poke three or four little vent holes right on top so that the steam can escape without causing a pie-crisis! Now, pop that beautiful apple pie on the lower rack of your oven and let it dance in there for about an hour. Keep an eye out for that whole grain crust, it's going to turn a golden hue, and the juices inside will start bubbling with excitement!
