I want you to close your eyes and join me on a magical ride to imagination land, okay? If you are scared, well too bad.Alright, fine.I can hold your hand if need be.So, here we are.A fluffy, wonderful, exciting land of vegan foods; Fruits, veggies, cakes, pies,cookies, and so on.This land, there are no animals, just the crap I just mentioned.
Now, imagine if there was a lonely apple pie who really wanted a date, something to share time with, just like many of us loser humans! They had gone on a few dates with a cake, thanks to pressure from their pie mother, but it had not worked out.Frankly pie and cake relationships do not last very long.
But then, one day, out of the blue, the apple pie met a cookie, and they fell in love, and decided to to spend their lives together.
How fucking romantic, huh? Or perhaps: How fucking insane an idea that just was and what the hell am I talking about?
Well, fine, this is is what I am talking about:Their love child, a mix of apple pie and cookie.There, now you know, and all the magic of that special bond is now gone, and I really do not know how I can go on now, but I will do my best.
I do not really know what is the best name for this, but it sure was tasty, and that is perhaps more important than some eye catching name.Of course, that is also probably why 2 people read this blog, if that.
Okay, that is a lie, I have a pretty good amount of readers, even if most of them never comment, or whatever.Anyways, that really has nothing to do with anything, so I will just get to the recipe.
- 1 cup of flour.
- 7 tablespoons of earth balance.
- 1/4th cup of sugar.
- 4 apples, peeled, cored, chopped.Somewhat small, please.
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar.
- 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
- 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.
- 1/2- 3/4th cup of chopped walnuts.
- 1/4 cup of flour.
- 7 tablespoons of Earth Balance.
- 1/4 cup of sugar.
- 1 cup of flour.
First, if you are observant, and perhaps you will note that the first three ingredients are the same as the last three.That is not a typo, that is for both layers of the cookie part of this , but make them separately.
PLease, please, please, pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.Now, grab a bowl, mix 1/4th cup of sugar with the 7 tablespoons of Earth Balance.Really whip it good, like the Devo song.Stir in the flour, till it becomes quite crumbly.
grab an 8 inch by 8 inch pan, and fill it with the mixture, making it evenly spread, and pat it down.Baking in the oven for about 12 minutes, till you just start to see the edges browning, but only slightly.
Meanwhile, in those 12 minutes, combine the apples, nutmeg, cinnamon, lemon juice, brown sugar, 1/4th cup of sugar, and mix that well.layer that on top of the cooked cookie crust that you have now baked for 12 minutes.
Now, I baked this for 10 minutes, then added the second layer of cookie crust and cooked a further ten minutes, and I do not know if that makes much of a difference.So, you could cook it either way, I think.
That sounds confusing.
Alright, so bake the cookie crust for 12 minutes, add the layer of the pie filling, and bake another ten minutes.Then, add the top layer of cookie crust and bake another 10 or so minutes.That clears up the confusion, I think.
Anyways, there you have it.
