This mouth-watering hearty gluten free apple pie is pure magic – the buttery, flaky cheesy crust complements perfectly the sweetness of the creamy and flavorful filling.  Granny Smith apples work best but you may use other tart green apples.


  • 1½ cups gluten free all-purpose flour, plus some extra for dusting
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Gouda cheese, shredded (you may use white cheddar or American cheese)
  • ¼ cup ice water
  • 1/3 cup chilled butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 egg yolk (optional)
  • Filling:
  • 6-8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk


Step 1

In a food processor, combine gluten free flour, salt and butter and pulse for a few seconds at a time or until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

Step 2

Add egg yolk (if using), and drizzle water, one tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition, until the dough just holds together. Toss the shredded cheese with 1-2 tablespoons of gluten free flour and add to the pastry dough. Pulse until combined.

Step 3

Wrap dough with cling film and place in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes, while you prepare the filling.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 375 ̊ F, grease lightly a 9-inch pie dish and set aside.

Step 5

In a mixing bowl, toss together all filling ingredients.

Step 6

Divide the chilled pastry dough into two pieces, one about twice larger than the other. Dust the work surface with gluten free flour and roll the larger piece to about 1/6-inch thickness. Carefully transfer the rolled pastry to the prepared pie dish and press to cover the bottom and sides of the dish.

Step 7

Spoon filling into the crust, roll the remaining dough and cover the filling. Make a few slits with a sharp knife, crimp the edges and chill for 15 minutes.

Step 8

Brush pie with some milk and bake pie for 35-45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack before serving.
