Apple Pie!!

Saw a recipe for apple pie and decided to tweak it into my own creation. It turned out to be yummmmmyyyy and just what i wanted. The apples, raw honey and arrowroot created an oooey gooey carmely (yes i know its not a word) goodness that is hard to resist. Add a tender strudel-liscious topping and you have the makings of a beautiful dessert! *nom nom*

Apple Pie
1 1/2 C Almond Flour
1/2 C Coconut Flour
1 Tbsp Raw Honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C Coconut Oil
6-9 Tbsp Ice Water
¼ C Coconut Sugar

4 C Apple- peeled and sliced
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
2 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp Raw Honey
1 Tbsp Vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp Arrowroot Powder

In bowl, combine crust ingredients except coconut sugar, oil, and water.
Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut solid coconut oil into crust to form pea size clumps.
A few tbsp at a time, mix in ice water till crust forms and will hold together between your fingers, but does not become sticky. 
With 3/4 of the crust, form in the bottom of a greased pie plate with your fingers. This crust is very delicate, so it will be difficult to transfer if you roll it out.
Once crust is formed, mix together filling ingredients and pour into crust
Add the coconut sugar to the remaining 1/4 crust mixing well to create crumble topping. Cover pie with topping then place in a 325 oven for 35-40 minutes.

This was really delicious. I did have to bake it a bit longer to get the apples to cook. When the timer went off, I covered the pie with tin foil to prevent the crust from burning and let it cook for another 10 minutes. When I removed the foil, the inside was bubbling...yum! Thanks for posting this great recipe!
