Apple Cranberry Slab Pie for #SundaySupper

I am so happy to be participating in #SundaySupper again this week! Especially because our #SundaySupper theme of the week is Baking for the Cure sponsored by Chantal Cookware. Chantal and the Sunday Supper Movement have come together to encourage everyone to take a couple of hours out of their busy week and bake for someone who has been affected by cancer or someone in the medical profession who makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients.  A small gesture to show someone how much you care and brighten up their day.

This sort of gesture is especially meaningful to me as my mother is a breast cancer survivor. Over the past five years we’ve supported breast cancer charities by running, walking, and buying lots and lots of pink things. However, this is the first time I’ve ever connected cooking and baking to comforting someone touched by this disease.

Since I’m not much of a baker, I was really feeling the challenge with this one. Since my food philosophy is about simple, healthy recipes, I decided to try something fun with apple pie. I’ve see slab pies on a variety of websites and in cookbooks. Instead of doing two layers of crust, I decided to make this one open faced to cut down on calories. I made a simple whole wheat crust and topped it with tasty sliced apples, walnuts and dried cranberries. I added cranberries because I wanted some pink in the dish, and the tart sweetness complimented the apples really nicely.

The pie turned out super tasty! Sweet and comforting, but light enough not to weigh you down and make you feel guilty. A large slice has only 149 calories! This is a great way to enjoy a healthy, seasonal treat. Craig called this “Apple Pie Pizza” which is an apt description. You can even fold the slices and eat with your hands if you want!

Recipe Type: Dessert
Cuisine: All-American
Author: Dara

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 4 tbsp vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup COLD water, divided
  • 4 large apples, washed, cored and cut into 1/2″ wide slices
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp raw honey or agave nectar
  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened dried cranberries, chopped
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. In a mixer, combine flour, 1/2 cup oats and shortening. Slowly add cold water, pulsing until the mixture is crumbly.
  3. Roll dough out to fit the dimensions of a large cookie sheet with crust. I used a 18″ x 12″ cookie sheet, so I rolled the dough out to approx 20″ by 14″ to allow for crust.
  4. Carefully fold over crust, pinching to ensure evenness, as you would a pizza
  5. In a large bowl, combine sliced apples, cranberries, nuts, honey, lemon juice and 2 tbsp flour. Toss until all the ingredients are evenly coated
  6. Using a spatula, spread apple mixture evenly over the crust, making sure to evenly distribute the filling
  7. In a small bowl, combine 2/3 cup oats, brown sugar and olive oil. Mix.
  8. Sprinkle topping over the apples evenly
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes until crust is crisp and the apples are soft
  10. Slice 4×4 into 16 squares and serve warm or cold

    Dara, I love your slab pie! I’d much rather eat the filling than the crust, so this is perfect. I’m so happy your mom is a survivor…hope her good health continues! Happy #SundaySupper!

    I’m so glad to hear that your mom is a survivor. Thank God for our moms – I truly don’t know what I would do if my mom was sick (knock on wood). And this apple slab pie looks delicious! I love that you made it healthier. That’ll decrease my guilt when I eat the majority of it myself!

    Your mum is an inspiration my friend, thank you for sharing – and I simply love this delicious pie :D

    Cheers

    That’s a fun little twist between a pie and a bar! How fun! These look a little more suitable for a pick-up type gathering than a traditional pie, but has all the same great flavors.

  15. Colleen @ Culinary Colleen October 23, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    I love this idea! I’m not usually a fan of super sweet, overly heavy desserts, so this would be perfect for me.

  16. Sarah October 23, 2012 at 8:03 pm #

    hee hee I’m not a baker either and I’m not huge fan of thick pie crust. I can totally appreciate this recipe. Yummy! And it’s healthy. Who would have known?

  17. Jenn and Seth October 23, 2012 at 10:25 pm #

    i have everything to make this, yayyy! this looks AMAZING Dara!

  18. Hezzi-D October 25, 2012 at 11:55 pm #

    Great idea! Eating pie can be so messy but with this technique all you need is your hands!

  19. Nami | Just One Cookbook October 27, 2012 at 5:31 am #

    I’m not much of a baker either but your slab pie looks so perfect that I really want to make this on my own too! So glad to hear your mom is a survivor and this is a healthy baked recipe that I really enjoy learning, Dara!
