You won’t miss the dairy butter in this delicious, ginger-forward apple pie. You’ll be too distracted by the spiced tender fruit and crispy, hearty streusel. A tablespoon of fresh grated ginger seals the deal with its welcome snap. The ginger may also soothe your stomach after a heavy meal—just another reason to serve yourself a slice of this pie.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured work surface. Fit dough inside a 9-inch pie plate, pressing into bottom and up sides of plate; crimp edges. Set aside.

  • Stir together oats, salt, ½ cup of the flour, and ¼ cup of the brown sugar in a large bowl until combined. Add vegan butter. Pinch butter into flour mixture using your fingers until mixture resembles wet sand. Set aside.

  • Stir together apples, ginger, cinnamon, and remaining 1 tablespoon flour and ¼ cup brown sugar in a large bowl. Spoon apple mixture into prepared crust, mounding apples slightly higher in the center. Sprinkle with oat mixture.

  • Bake in preheated oven until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 60 minutes, tenting with aluminum foil after 50 minutes if needed to prevent over-browning. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely, about 2 hours. Serve with nondairy frozen dessert, if desired.
