Apple pie with a twist

I had some apples to use up. I had store-bought vegan pastry. I didn’t have enough apples for a full apple pie. Then I had an idea… I made some nut cream filling from Leigh Drew’s Cherry Strudel recipe from Wrapped in Pastry. (I used almonds, but you can also use cashews). A layer of parcooked apple slices on the bottom, then the nut cream, then more apples. By this time I was running out of pastry, so I did a fancy lattice thing on top.

It was fun! and it worked well. My son and I enjoyed this with dairy-free vanilla ice-cream. My daughter just liked to eat the pie on its own.

You can watch a video of Leigh making cherry strudel on the Veganthused site.
