This is a healthier alternative to traditional apple pie but carries just as much flavor! The squeeze of lemon brightens up the tart for a fresh apple filling with a classic pie crust.

Ingredients

Pie Filling

  • 10 fresh apples granny smith, fuji, etc.
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 tsp turbinado sugar

Pie Crust

Instructions

Crust

  • Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl.
  • Add the Salute Santé! Grapeseed Oil and butter to the flour and salt.
  • Beat with a mixer until particles are the size of small peas, about 30 seconds.
  • Slowly add water, one tablespoon at a time, until particles are moistened. Use only enough water to make the pastry form a ball.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  • Roll to 1/8-inch thickness between 2 waxed paper sheets.
  • Place pastry on a pie plate or tart dish (makes two 8 or 9-inch single crusts or one 8 or 9-inch double crust.)
  • Press firmly against bottom and sides and shape into tart dish.
  • Trim and crimp edges. Tow 8 or 9-inch single crusts or one 8 or 9-inch double crust.

Filling

  • Preheat the oven to 400º F.
  • Cut apples into thin slices lengthwise.
  • Arrange fruit slices by fanning them out around the tart dish, overlapping as you go. Complete the circle.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the whole tart.
  • Sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

Notes

Substitutes: Great with other fresh fruit: pears, quince, peaches or berries.
