No-Wheat, No-Cane Apple Pie


1/2 stick melted butter

1.5 cup almonds

In a food processor grind almonds until they form a flour. While the machine is running drizzle melted butter into almonds.* Remove and press into a small (9-10 inch) piepan to form a crust. Blind bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.


3 apples slice or chopped

1/2 stick butter

2-3 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce


1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or both.

In a skillet, melt butter then add apples, cinnamon and applesauce. Simmer until apples are tender, and filling is gooey and bubbly.* Pour into crust and top with chopped walnuts. Bake at 350 for about 30-35 minutes.

* A small amount of hot water can sometimes be helpful.

    1. Well, in my case I could just remove my reading glasses . . . but, seriously, in cooking terms blind baking means to bake a crust without the filling. It’s also sometimes called “prebaking.” Basically you want to firm up the crust so it doesn’t go soggy when you pour in the filling.
