gingerbread apple pie

Delish. It’s from Vegan with a Vengeance, and since I’m not in the habit of posting recipes from published cookbooks, I shan’t post it here. But if you know me holla at me and I’ll hook you up!

It came out really great, especially considering the fact that I subbed half of the margarine in the crust with applesauce and completely ommitted the oil from the filling part. However, I put some applesauce in to compensate for the oil, then I felt like the filling mixture was still too dry, so I put in some water. I didn’t have the tapioca starch or arrowroot powder called for, so I used cornstarch (which is considerably weaker, or at least I think so…). So too much liquid plus not enough thickener made the filling slighty soupy. Oh me…

But the spicy-apple-cookie thing it had going on was pretty cool, and it all worked out once the pie was fully chilled anyway. So next time, less liquid, a bit more cornstarch.

  2. ohhhh… that looks so good! I’ve been wanting to make that pie for a while, I like the spicy-apple-cookie description. And good to know it can take a bit of subs (if I’m making pie for no special occasion yes, I will sub out oil!). yummy!
