Pumpkin Apple Pie

Ciao Everyone!!

Today is Thursday, November 15th.

Do you know what that means??


Happy one week 'till thanksgiving, everyone!!

"I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High." Psalm 7:17

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song." Psalm 28:7

"In that day you will say: “Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted." " Isaiah 12:4

God Almighty is most worthy of all our thanks!

Because of the upcoming holdiday, this will now be a very holiday-oriented recipe post...

Do you know what my biggest issue is with the classic Thanksgiving dinner??

It's all so good.

So good that by the time you get to the end, there is only just enough room to try some pie..maybe..or there has to be, regardless;)

But in our family, there will always inevitably be: Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, and the amazing Apple Crisp (among whatever other spontaneous additions that somehow also made it to the party).

And I love them all.

I do not love the unsolvable equation of how to enjoy them..all of them.. without feeling wayy to full.

Not a happy decision:P

So I have invented the perfect solution!!!!!!! :)

Pumpkin Apple Crumb Pie!
(original creation)
Serves: 8-12

For the filling:
2 cups sliced apples (about 2 small apples)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon stevia (baker's bag)
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon allspice

1 (15oz) can pure pumpkin (NOT pie filling!)
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup stevia (baker's bag)
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice

For the crust:
1 1/4 cup homemade oat flour
1/4 cup + 1/2 tablespoon water
1/2 flax oil (although olive oil would probably suffice)
1/2 tablespoon vanilla almond milk
1/4 teaspoon salt

For the topping:
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup stevia (baker's bag)
2 tablespoons vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
optional-chopped nuts

to serve: sprinkle with more cinnamon, whipped cream, cool whip, or vanilla ice cream/frozen yogurt

1) Prepare crust-
Mix ingredients together with a fork; grease pie plate (9-9.5 inch); press dough into form of plate.
2) Prepare filling-
Mix together sliced apples and all ingredients listed beneath them, stopping with 1/4 teaspoon allspice; pour into pie crust and spread evenly.
Mix together pumpkin puree and all ingredients listed beneath it, stopping at crust ingredients (obviously;] ); pour over apple mixture and spread evenly.
3) Bake pie at 400 degrees; set timer for 15 minutes.
4) Prepare topping-
Mix together all ingredients for crumb topping (including any other ingredients you like, such as nuts or raisins); when pie timer goes off, add to top of pie; set timer for another 25-30 minutes, or until topping is looking more golden brown.
5) Now that your pie has baked for a total of 40 MINUTES (notice both baking times), let cool, cover with tin foil or clear wrap, and then refrigerate overnight.
6) Now it's the next day and your pie is very ready to be enjoyed by all!! :)

Ciao for now!
