Apple and Olive Oil Pie for Very Merry Christmas

December 25, 2013
Author Notes

One of the most delicious surprises we lately had in our kitchen! Once again my guide was Yotam and his first book. But I love making my pies white flour and refined sugar free. So I have made my healthy alterations keeping it´s best taste and texture. Moist but light and fluffy, very Christmassy and delicious. Give it a try, you won´t regret :) —Ausra de Araujo
