Pie Pan or Pie Plate?

The terms “pie pan” and “pie plate” are often used interchangeably to refer to the shallow, round dish used for baking pies. Traditionally, a “pie pan” was made of metal, such as aluminum or tin, and had sloping sides that were straight at the bottom and curved at the top. A “pie plate,” on the other hand, was made of ceramic or glass and had fluted sides that were slightly angled.

🕐How to make this Moist Dairy Free Apple Pie

  • First you need to make the pie dough for the pie crust. Check the pie crust recipe with detailed instructions here. In short, use a stand or hand-held mixer to mix flour, salt, and vegetable shortening in a medium-size bowl. When the dough clumps together and can form a ball, you roll it with a rolling pin and transfer it to a 9-inch pie pan. Place it in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes.

❓FAQs about the Moist Dairy Free Apple Pie

Can I make this Moist Dairy Free Apple Pie recipe gluten-free?

You can make it gluten free if you make the pie crust dough gluten free. For this you have to use an alternative gluten free flour mix that you can substitute on 1:1. However, pie dough is often tricky to make, and you may have to change the recipe, mostly the quantities per ingredient.

Is this Apple Pie recipe vegan?

This recipe is actually vegan as it is dairy free and does not contain eggs or meat. It uses a vegan butter.

Can I make this pie recipe crustless?

You can make this Apple Pie crustless by omitting the pie crust. If you do so, the recipe will be more of a cake than a pie. To make a crustless version, simply omit the pie crust and pour the filling mixture into a greased 9-inch baking pan. You will have to change the recipe and add flour to the mixture so that it does not fall apart. Bake it until the filling is set and lightly golden on top. Let the “pie” cool before slicing and serving.

How can I store this Apple Pie?

The vegan pie can be put away in the fridge for as long as 4 days. To store the pie, wrap it firmly in a wrap or aluminum foil. For ideal quality, serving the pie at room temperature or marginally warmed in the oven is ideal. To warm the pie, essentially take it out from the cooler and put it in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 min, or until warmed through.
