A few new twists to liven up your Thanksgiving apple pie this year. Brandy and maple syrup marinate crunchy apples. Peanut butter infuses a buttery (olive oil butter buttery) shortbread crust. Granola inspires a crumb topping with oats, raisins, peanuts and cranberries. Despite the complexity, this pie comes together pretty easily and the three main components can sit in the fridge until there is room in the oven. WARNING: This is vegan, but not a diet food - time to indulge just a bit this Thanksgiving.

Ingredients

  • 8 Tbsp butter, preferably plant oil-based, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt and baking powder, each
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup salted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp butter, preferably plant oil-based
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 lbs apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp brandy (optional)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg and ground allspice, each
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves

Preparation

  1. In a stand mixer or food processor, add butter, sugar and peanut butter. Beat/cream for 3 minutes until smooth, then reduce speed to low and add flour, salt and baking powder. Crust will be crumby. Turn out and kneed for a few minutes until dough comes together. Put in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  2. Meanwhile preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. To make the crumb, put all the ingredients into a medium bowl and stir until combined. Cover and refrigerate.
  4. To make apple filling, toss all ingredients together in a large bowl until well coated. Refrigerate.
  5. Spray a 9-10" pie pan with cooking spray and press crust into pan evenly. Prick with a fork and bake for 10-15 minutes until just slightly browned. Remove from oven and add apple filling using a slotted spoon so liquid remains in bowl. Sprinkle with granola crumb topping and bake 60 minutes until apples are soft and browned. If needed, baste pie with remaining apple filling liquid a few times throughout cooking. Let cool slightly, slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
