Autumn Puffpasty+Crumble Spiced Apple Pie

Use your own apples, local store bought apples or your normal day to day apples from the supermarket. This apple pie has it all, flakey puff pastry base, spicy apple filling and crumbley topping.

You will need:

  • 1 sheet of Puff Pastry (most shops sell vegan friendly, dairy free puff pastry)


  • 3/4 cup Plain Flour
  • 3/4 cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup White Sugar
  • 1 tbs Baking Powder
  • 100 grams Dairy Free Margarine (room temperatured)
  • 6-8 Apples (I used 8 small home grown apples, use less if you get bigger apples)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Ginger
  • 1 dash of Nutmeg
  • 1/3 - ½ cup White Sugar
  • 3 tbs Dairy Free Margarine
(I used the variety of apples called "Transparente Blanche")

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200C / 390F.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients for the crumble in a bowl. Add the margarine and mix well using your hands or a mixer with dough-hooks. Make sure all the margarine has been mixed in well.
  3. Clean your apples and cut them into small even sized chunks. (peel your apples if the peel is hard and thick. If not you can leave it on) Add the apple chunks to a bowl and mix with the spices and sugar. Taste to make sure it is sweet enough. Add more spices if desired.
  4. Grease your pie tin and cover with the puff pastry. Add all your spiced apple chunks and evenly spread small nobs of margarine. Now cover with the crumble mix.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes. Make sure you don't take it out of the oven to early as the risk might me that the puff pastry isnt baked enough.
Serve warm with soft vanilla ice cream


  1. i didn't know that there were vegan puff pastries out there! will have to look for it at whole foods. delicious scrumptious recipe! yay for fall inspired dessert!

  2. Yes have a look in both frozen and refridged sections at whole foods. I don't know about the US, but here alot of them are just 100% veggie margarine and some might have artificial "butter flavour" = Yay VEGAN :)

  3. White sugar? Isn't that not vegan?

  4. I love crumble topped pies, not only are they easier to make but tastier too. I'm on the hunt for fall recipes and this one looks perfect!

  5. Cerrasponda, Swedish White sugar (brand:DanSukker) is ALL VEGAN! Non of their sugars has been refined with bone char. Infact they don't even know why so many vegans call and ask them that, as that is not something they seem to do here.

    Maggie, Thats great, hope this one will become a great success in your home. Yum!

  6. This looks really good :-)
