Gluten-Free, Vegan Skillet Apple Pie---

Apple pie baked in a cast iron skillet is amazing, add to that gluten-free and vegan, and it is Pie Nirvana. 

Let's make some gluten-free, vegan apple pie!



  • 2 (9 in.) gf pie shells--we used Wholly Wholesome Gluten-Free Pie shells (these are also Vegan)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 10 cups tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
  • dash salt
  • 4 tbsp. Earth Balance


  • 2 tbsp. almond milk
  • sugar to sprinkle on top


  • In a large mixing bowl, add sliced apples. Coat with the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss well. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. This allows the juices from the apples to be released into a syrup.

  • Drain the syrup, place in a small saucepan. Bring to boil and reduce heat. Simmer until mixture slightly thickens, about 15 minutes. Remove. Let cool completely.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add flour and salt to drained apples. Mix well. 

  • Spray skillet with non-stick spray. Place the first pie shell on the bottom. Add apples. Pour syrup over apples. Add dollops of Earth Balance. 

  • Place remaining pie shell over the apples. Cut slits in the top (I break the pie shell, and add another because I love the crust.) Brush almond milk over the pastry. Sprinkle with sugar.

  • Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 50 minutes. Cool and serve.
