One-Crust Apple Pie

One-Crust Apple Pie

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

The trouble with American-style fruit pies is that there’s always too much crust. Too much, that is, for a health-conscious diner. Many health-oriented recipes try to solve the problem by taking the fat out of the crust, rendering it unedible. Our solution, on the other hand, is to make a single crust with lots of flavor and reasonable levels of fat (in this case all unsaturated fat from walnut oil). Timing alert: The dough needs to rest for 1 hour before you can roll it out.

Ingredients

Crust

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt

¼ cup walnut oil or extra-light olive oil
