Apple Pie (Eggless)

This is a special dish that I made for my SuperMan - Daddy Dearest!! Yes this is a father's day treat and this day is even more special as he enters his glorious 34th year of service - a celebration for all his hardwork and dedication! 
Apple pie is a mild dessert which is very easy. I have tried an eggless version with whole-wheat flour, that I came across in vegrecipesofindia. Let us jump right away into the recipe!

For the crust:
  • Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
  • Maida - 1/2 cup
  • Olive oil or butter - 1/4 cup
  • Water - 1/3 cup
  • Salt - 1/2 Tsp

For the filling:
  • Apple - 2 medium sized
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/4 Tsp
  • Brown Sugar - 2 Tbsp
  • Whole wheat flour - 2 Tbsp

  1. Sieve all dry ingredients - Whole wheat flour, maida and salt
  2. Add oil/butter and rub the flour with your fingers, till you obtain a texture similar to that of bread crumbs
  3. Now add water and gather all the ingredients together to form a dough. Do not knead
  4. Cover and keep aside
  5. Peel the apples and cut them into thin slices
  6. Mix brown sugar, whole wheat flour and cinnamon powder with the sliced apples
  7. Grease a tart mould or muffin moulds (for mini pies) with olive oil and pre-heat the oven to 180C
  8. Divide the dough into 4 or smaller portions according to the size of your mould
  9. Roll one portion into a round sheet (similar to roti) and place it on the greased mould. Press well across the sides and remove any excess dough
  10. Arrange the apple filling and then cut thin strips from the remaining dough and seal them in the shape of checker board as a top layer of the pie
  11. Brush the top layer with some milk and sprinkle more sugar on top, for the glaze
  12. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 30-45 minutes till the crust is golden brown (Mine was done in 30 minutes)
  13. Serve warm as such or with a scoop of ice-cream! I served it warm with mango milkshake and we all loved it :)
