4-6 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced, and cored
a dash of ginger
enough sweetener to completely coat the apples, plus a little
2 cup unbleached white flour
1/3-2/3 cup olive oil
6 tablespoons ice cold water
a few dashes of salt
Mix the apples with the sweetener, and put the spices on. I'm not sure how much cinnamon or nutmeg because I just shake those on. All I can say is I use a lot of cinnamon. Let that sit aside while you make the crust.
Put 2 C of flour into a bowl. Mix in the salt and then with a fork, mix the oil into the flour mixture. Pastry cutters do not work well with liquid fats. When the mixture is pebbley put in the water 2 tablespoons at a time. Divide the mixture and roll out between waxpaper. Fill with apples and put the top crust on. For decoration use small cookie cutters on the top crust.
Bake for 8-10 minutes on 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then turn down to 250 for about an hour.
