This pie is full of fruit and features a flaky crust that is made with extra virgin olive oil. The pungent flavor of the olive oil enhances the sweet, acidic fruit and gives a flaky texture to the crust.

Olive Oil Pie Crust - Fruit Pie

This super flaky crust is almost guilt free since it is not made with hydrogenized fat or butter. It is easy to make in a food processor and bakes to a flaky perfection.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 cups apples cored and sliced
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 each lemon zest and juice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 1 each egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar for the top

Instructions

  • Place the flour in a food processor. Mix the ice water and olive oil. Pour all in at once. Pulse and mix until the mixture comes together.
  • Knead the dough by hand until the dough forms a ball. Add a little more water if necessary.
  • Separate the dough into two pieces and shape them into a round flat shape. Roll the dough using a rolling pin and flour. Place it into the bottom of the pie pan.
  • Mix the apples, sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, and lemon together. Place them in the center of the pie dough. Use egg for the edges.
  • Roll the 2nd piece of pie dough and place it over the top. Egg wash the top crust, then sprinkle sugar on it. Cut some breathing holes/slats with a sharp knife.
  • Bake the pie at 375 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour. The pie is done when the crust is golden and the apples are bubbling.
  • Allow to cool and serve. Refrigerate the leftover.

Notes

You can use any pie-centric fruit like peaches, rhubarb, berries, or plums. You can even mix them. To give the apple pie a little red color add raspberries or cranberries to the filling, replacing some of the apples so that you are using 4 cups of fruit total.
