A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don't like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!

Directions for: Whole Grain Crusted Apple Pie with Maple Yogurt Topping


For the Crust

1 ½ cup whole wheat flour

1 cup rolled oats

2 Tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp salt

½ cup vegetable oil

½ cup or so of water

For the Filling

6 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and cut into 6 even pieces

½ cup honey

3 Tbsp whole-wheat flour

1 Tbsp of cinnamon

For the Topping

½ cup yogurt

¼ cup maple syrup


For the Crust

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Whisk the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Add the oil and mix well. Add the water and stir just until the mixture comes together. Knead it once or twice to gather up all the dry ingredients. Add a few drops more of water if needed. Divide in half and form into 2 flattened discs. Chill until ready to use.

For the Filling

1. Toss the apples with the honey, flour and cinnamon.

2. Flour your hands, the work surface, the roller and the dough then roll one pastry disc out into a 12-inch round and fit it into an 8-inch pie plate. You may find it easy to fold the disc into quarters than pick it up and unfold it over the pie plate. Add the apples.

3. Roll out the other disc into a 12-inch round and place over top of the apples. Trim and seal edges of pie and poke 3 or 4 vent holes into the top of the pie so that steam will be released and not blow out the crust. Place onto the bottom rack of the oven and bake for 1 hour, until crust is golden and juices are bubbling.

For the Topping

1. Whisk the yogurt and maple syrup together and serve with the pie.
