Grandma’s Apple Pie Recipe

Filling Ingredients

  • 1 – 2 pack of gluten-free/paleo crust of your choice
  • 6 – 8 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (I used 1/2 granny smith and 1/2 sweeter apples such as honey crisps or fuji) 
  • 1/2  cup packed coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter-flavored shortening, melted


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together apples and coconut sugar. 
  2. Place into one pie crust (set aside the second one for the top). 
  3. Drizzle with melted butter-flavored shortening.
  4. Place top pastry over filling; trim overhanging edge. 
  5. Bake for 15 minutes. Make cuts through the top crust for ventilation. 
  6. Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch strips of foil to prevent excessive browning.
  7. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the crust is deep golden brown, removing foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.
  8. Cool completely.

** for an extra special treat add 3 tablespoons maple syrup to the filling and drizzle 3 Tablespoons over the top of the pie before you bake.

** Add 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon to filling mix for a cinnamon apple pie.
