  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 to 7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3-5 tablespoons ice water

  3. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time, or until the dough holds together well when you make a handful of it and form a disc.
  4. Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar, flour and spices; set aside.
  6. In a large bowl, toss sliced/peeled apples with lemon juice. Add sugar/flour/spice mixture; toss to coat.
