For the crust…
2 cups raw almonds
2 cups organic pitted dates
Pinch of sea salt
For the syrup…
1/2 cup pitted dates or raisins
1 organic orange
For the filling…
5-6 whole apples
1 cup organic raisins
2 tbs cinnamon
Begin with the crust. First put a handful of almonds in the food processor and grind. Sprinkle on the bottom of the pan as a base layer so that the crust does not stick to the bottom. Then put your almonds and dates, along with a pinch of sea salt, into the food processor. Grind that up, and then form this sticky crust into the pan using your hands.
Next, make the syrup. Mix your dates or raisins with a peeled, seeded orange. Blend until it makes a pasty syrup. Add a little water if you want a thinner consistency.
Then, for the filling, peel and slice 5 whole apples into a mixing bowl. Add syrup and cinnamon to apples and toss with hands. Take half the apples and put into food processor and blend. Fill pie with apple filling. Layer top of pie with remainder of apples and sprinkle raisins on top. It is then ready to serve!
