Recipe Ingredients

Smart Balance® Cooking Spray - Original
4 cups thinly sliced tart apples, such as Granny Smith (about 3 apples total)
4 cups thinly sliced red apples, such as Gala (about 3 apples total)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup chilled Smart Balance® Blended Butter Stick, diced
2-3 tablespoons cold water
1 large egg, white only, beaten
1 tablespoon sugar

Recipe Steps

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine the apples and vanilla in a large bowl. Sprinkle the remaining filling ingredients, except the cooking spray, evenly over the apples and toss gently to blend.

Coat a 9-inch deep dish glass pie pan with cooking spray. Place the apple mixture in the pan and set aside.

Combine the remaining 1 1/4 cups flour and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in the large bowl (the same bowl the apples were in). Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the Smart Balance® Blended Butter Stick into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal.

Sprinkle with the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork until dough is moist, but slightly crumbly.

Gently press dough into a 4-inch circle on a sheet of plastic wrap, cover with another sheet of plastic wrap.

Roll the dough, still covered, into an 11-inch circle.

Remove top sheet of plastic wrap from dough circle; place, plastic wrap side up, overfilling. Remove remaining plastic wrap.

Press edges of dough together. Fold edges under, and flute.

Cut 4 (1-inch) slits into top of pastry using a sharp knife.

Brush top and edges of pie with egg white; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

Place strips of foil around outer edges of the pie to prevent the edges from over-browning and bake 25 minutes.

Remove foil strips and bake 30 minutes or until pie crust is golden.
