This recipe originally called for pears, but we adapted it to apple, and it quickly has become a FAVORITE to make and enjoy.
For the pie dough:
3-4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean sea salt*
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup blood orange olive oil*
1 tablespoon prosecco wine vinegar
For the apples:
1 tablespoon avocado oil*
4 Honeycrisp apples
4 teaspoons sugar & spice dipper
1 teaspoon vanilla bean sea salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple sugar
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
2 tablespoons candied ginger, finely chopped
2 tablespoons milk
sugar & spice dipper

Instructions: In a bowl, combine three cups flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix in blood orange olive oil and vinegar, mixing into coarse crumbs. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. With your hands, gently but quickly, knead the dough just until combined, adding more flour if dough feels too soft or ice water (one tablespoon at a time) if dough is too dry. Roll out into a disk shape and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill for at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 425 F. Lightly coat four ramekins with avocado oil.
Cut apples in half. With a spoon, core the seeded area out to create a well for filling. In a bowl, combine the dipper, salt, brown sugar, maple syrup, pecans, and ginger for filling.
Spoon the filling mix into both halves of each apple and place back together. Place each apple on the center of a dough disk. Wrap the dough up and around the apple to enclose. Place each pastry-wrapped apple into the prepared ramekin. Decoratively cut leaves out of the extra piece of dough and place atop the apples to finish. Using a paring knife, cut a few small slots around the top for air to escape while baking. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Brush the egg wash on each of the pies. Finish with a sprinkle of sugar & spice dipper.
Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
