Notes on making eggless apple pie recipe. 1. We use soft butter as hard butter is difficult to mix in the dough with maida. We don’t need a very soft dough but it must be in between. The dough should be semi soft and not very hard. 2. Gradually add water to knead the dough and you can use 2 hands to knead the dough as it's difficult with one hand. 3. You don’t need to buy the best apples to make Indian style apple pie but they need to be firm. 3. Cooking apples are the best to use and if you don’t get them then it’s okay as we use lemon juice. 3. The dough has to rolled into 2 parts, where one third will be used for the topping. 4. It is difficult to pick up the dough for the base and hence you should roll it up and out it in the tin. Do it very gently so the dough does not break. 5. There will always be some extra dough so you can make a small apple pie or make some small tarts and put some strawberries or peaches. 6. Prick the eggless apple pie dough topping with a fork so that the dough will not fluff up. 7. Coat the eggless apple pie top with milk to get a lovely shine.

Serve eggless apple pie warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

   Hi, Yes you can make it a day before and refrigerate it, if for more duration like 2 days, you can freeze it by wrapping it in a cling wrap. You can reheat in a pre-heated oven at 140 deg for 10 minutes.
