Sarah and I were planning to make a dairy-free e-book for the holidays. But we eventually decided to put our favorite holiday recipes online instead. That’s why this The classic dairy-free Thanksgiving menu It was created. But somehow, one of Sarah’s family favorite recipes: apple butterscotch pie has been forgotten. This recipe has a unique trick. Pour the buttery and sugar mixture over it. Most of it seeps into the pie filling, but some coats the top crust, creating the distinct flavor of the dessert.
Butterscotch apple pie is a spin on Grandma Opel’s popular recipe
Sarah’s recipe contains a few modifications from the classics of Grandma Opel. She of course uses a dairy-free pie crust and dairy-free “butter” instead of the versions with dairy. Sarah’s family prefers the flavor with the addition of a little cinnamon. Here are some more tips for making the best Butterscotch apple pie:
- capillary rindIt is essential to make a mesh layer on this pie, as it allows some of the sugary mixture to get into the apples. But there is another way…
- Hard topcoat or cleaning method: You can stir about 2/3 of the butter-sugar mixture with the apples, and place it on the top crust, then brush or brush the remaining mixture over the top layer of the dough.
- Dairy free pancake batter: Believe it or not, there are plenty of dairy-free pie crust products and uncooked pie crusts on the market. If you can’t find pie dough, you can get unbaked pie crusts (they are often sold frozen) and remove one from the tin to use on top. Or just make your own! We love this Buttermilk dairy-free pie crust recipe. It is well laid out. Sarah often uses a pie recipe like thisIt does contain eggs.
- The best appleMake sure to use apples that are made to hold up well in pie recipes. If the filling comes out mushy, it’s due to the apples, not the recipe. Also, we like a combination of tart apple (like Granny Smith) and sweet (like Honey Crisp or Gala) for balance.
- Cinnamon note: Don’t be attracted to adding cinnamon to the butter-sugar mixture. It is best served and tasted when mixed with apples. If it is used in a butter-sugar mixture, the top crust will not look pretty, and it also spoils the flavor of the candy a bit.

We have not tested this recipe gluten free. It would probably work well with your favorite gluten-free pancake batter and a flour substitute (but don’t use coconut flour—it will absorb all the moisture). I choose to use starch, I will reduce the amount to 2 tablespoons. Please let us know if you try it!
