As American as Apple Pie

 Slice your apples thinly, as even as possible, but don't get neurotic about it! I like to use a mix of apples to give more depth of taste, but you can use whatever you like best!
 Rinse and then sprinkle with sugar. Raw is best, but use what you have.
 Use any simple pie crust (avoiding hydrogenated oils of course!), and roll thin. To pick it up, use a pie sheet or a crust lifter such as this Pastry Mat
and prevent some of the issues you see in mine  :) But all's well that tastes awesome, right :)

In a large bowl, add 1/2 cup brown rice flour, 1/4 to 1/2 cup raw honey, a squirt of sour (I used lemon) and a jar of apple butter. Mix well and add this into your apples, toss and fold into your pie crust.


You can add butter if you'd like. I also added some pomegranate seed that I had... YUM! for extra sour!
Cover your pie with another layer of crust. Cut open holes and cover with tin foil or a Pie Crust Shield

 Bake at 425 for 35-40 minutes.
