Happy eating!

For the holidays I made The Gracious Pantry's Clean eating Apple Pie. It was AMAZING!

Clean Eating Apple Pie
(Makes 1 [8 or 9 inch] pie)

1 batch of clean eating pie crust (You’ll need two crusts, top and bottom)
Apples, cut and seeded – Enough to fill the pie tin. (About 2-3 cups)
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup honey or agave
1 tbsp. organic cornstarch or tapioca starch
1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 1 – In a large mixing bowl, combine your apples, cinnamon, honey or agave, cornstarch and lemon juice. Stir well to coat the apples thoroughly.
Step 2 – Pour the apples into your pie crust (which should be IN the pie pan already… just sayin’…).
Step 3 – Top the pie with the second crust and pinch all around the edge to seal it. 
Step 4 – Cut a vent in the top so steam can escape and transfer the entire pie to the oven.
Step 5 – Bake for approximately 1 hour. It’s done when the juices start to bubble up through the vents you cut in the top.
