Apple Yogurt Crumb Pie (Gluten Free and Vegan)

Sour Cream Apple Pie used to be one of my very favorite pies. I've missed it the past couple of years. But this year instead of pining for it, I decided to rework it with So Delicous Coconut Milk Yogurt! Happy day, my pie came out great! Instead of using sour cream, sugar, flour and egg in the filling I substituted coconut milk yogurt, maple syrup and granulated tapioca. Now that Anna is able to again tolerate apples, everyone was able to partake and enjoy, and that made us all very thankful.

Apple Yogurt Crumb Pie

pastry for one-crust pie

8 large tart apples, such as Granny Smith
1 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk Vanilla Yogurt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. granulated tapioca

Crumb Topping
1 cup GF flour blend
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
4 tbsp. dairy free, soy free margarine (such as Earth Balance)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare your pie crust, set aside.

Peel, core and thinly slice the apples into a large bowl. Stir together the yogurt through the tapioca, pour over the apples and toss until the apples are evenly coated. Fill the pie plate with the apple mixture, distributing evenly. Put the pie in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn heat down to 375 degrees and bake 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the crumb topping.

Combine the flour blend through the cinnamon. Cut in the margarine with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine meal. Remove the pie from the oven. Pour the crumb topping over the apples, spreading to cover evenly.

Return the pie to the oven and bake another 30 minutes. Test the apples with a toothpick. Bake another 10 - 15 minutes if needed, until the apples are soft and the filling is bubbly, covering with tin foil to keep the topping from over-browning if needed.

Remove the pie from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
