    For the Crust:
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 teason ground ginger
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 cup Earth Balance, softened
    1 tablespoon molasses
    2 tablespoon cold water

    For the Filling:
    2 pounds Granny Smith apples (about 8), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground or freshly grated nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    pinch ground cloves
    1/4 cup pure maple syrup
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    2 tablespoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Make the crust:
Sift together the flour, sugar, spices, salt, and baking powder. Add the margarine one tablespoonful at a time and cut in with a pastry cutter, knife or your fingertips. Drizzle the molasses and water over the dough, mixing with your fingertips until the crumbs of dough begin to cling together. Set aside 1/2 cup of the dough. Gather together the rest of the dough and knead it into a ball. Press it evenly into the bottom and sides of a pie pan and bake for 10 minutes.

Make the filling:
While the crust bakes, combine in a mixing bowl all the filling ingredients except the arrowroot powder (or cornstarch). Sprinkly the arrowroot powder over the apple mixture and mix until the starch is dissolved.

Assemble the pie:
Fill the pie crust with the apple mixture, and crumble the remaining 1/2 cup of dough over the filling. Cover with foil and bake for 20 more minutes. Remove the foil and bake 30 minutes more; the filling should be bubbling and the apples should be tender. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serves 8 - 12. Nutrition count is for 12 servings.
