Three Cookbook Pie

It’s the pie that three separate cookbooks built!

I had a lot of organic apples that were just starting to get mushy, so I thought–oh! There’s a great recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance for roasted applesauce! I’ll make that!

Cut to me, unable to actually make the apple smoosh into sauce. I didn’t have a good food processor at the time, so I just froze my apple concoction with the hopes of someday making it into a pie. That day arrived!

Step two was defrosting, and mixing the apples with a can of drained tart cherries and about 1/4 cup sugar. After they boiled away on the stove for about 10 minutes, some of the liquids had thickened up and made a nice sugary syrup.

I used the pie crust recipe from Veganomicon–it turned out much better than my previous crusty attempts. I don’t even think I did it correctly (my dough was a little on the dry and stiff side), but it still rolled okay, and made a nice flaky crust.

And since I like my pies to have a crumble top, I whipped out Vegan Cookies Take Over Your Cookie Jar and halved the Blueberry Crumb Cookies recipe. It still made a little more crumb than most people like, but I’m a streusel girl, and I loved it!Now I kind of want to make a berry pie, with every berry I can get my hands on. I can’t wait for summer!

For recipes, of course, buy the books! Or at least check your local library.
