Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose gluten free flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the pie:

  • 4 honeycrisp apples
  • 3 plums
  • 1/4 cup currants or raisins
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose gluten free flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • Juice of half a lemon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a 9 inch pie pan. Set aside.

For the crust:

  • Combine pecans and brown sugar in a food processor until grainy and well combined.  Add in flour, butter, vanilla, egg and salt and pulse until a ball forms.
  • Press dough into the buttered pie pan and chill in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, covered.   This dough can be frozen up to a week if you want to make the crust ahead of time. 

For the pie:

  • While the crust chills, peel the apples and thinly slice by hand or food processor.  Remove pits from plums and chop.  Add apples, plums and currants into a large bowl.
  • Add flour, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and lemon to fruits in bowl.   Toss pie filling so everything is combined.
  • Using a fork, poke a few holes in the bottom of the frozen pie crust and then pour the fruit filling into the pie crust.  
  • Bake for 60 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and crust is golden brown.  
  • Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.   Sprinkle powdered sugar on top if desired.
