Rustic Apple Raspberry Pie for One

Rustic Apple Raspberry Pie

Many times folks say they cannot make a pie that is small enough for one person. Ok, two people if you are feeling generous. So here is one that is super easy and extremely yummy.

Enjoy and happy holidays.

Love Chef Mel xx



3/4 cup flour – any kind works, wholewheat, oat, spelt etc

1/8-1/4 cup coconut oil warmed
Sea salt

1/4 cup apple juice

1 teaspoon kuzu diluted in a little water

2 medium apples cut into chunks

12 raspberries

juice ½ tangerine

generous pinch of cinnamon

1 tablespoon kuzu diluted in a little cold water

1 tablespoon rice syrup

Spring water


Pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees

Place the flour and 1/8 teaspoon sea salt into a mixing bowl and whisk lightly.

Add the warmed coconut oil and mix together with your fingers until it resembles bread crumbs.
Add enough water to bind into a dough. 
Be gentle at this point otherwise dough will become hard.

Roll out the dough to fit a 5 inch dish.
Lift gently and place into the dish.
Don’t worry if it breaks apart.
Place the pieces into the dish and gently press together.
Lightly prick the base with a fork.
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
Remove and let cool for a few minutes.
While the pie shell is baking, place the apples, cinnamon, pinch sea salt, tangerine and apple juice into a pan. Bring to a boil on a medium flame and simmer for about 5-10 minutes.

You can do the washing up while the apples cook!
Remove the apples from the pan, and place into the pie shell.
Add the raspberries. 
Leave the juice from cooking the apples in the pan. Add the diluted kuzu and heat on a low flame, stirring until the juice thickens.
Pour over the apples and raspberries.
Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool before serving.

Rub oil into flour to resemble bread crumbs
Roll out the pastry
Place into a pie dish and prick base with a fork
place apples, juice and cinnamon into a pan
Place cooked apples and raspberries into the pie shell
Add the kuzu to the apple juice and stir until thickens
pour the kuzu over the fruit and pop into the oven

 And now for the fun part - relishing every morsel!
