Apple Pie With Short Bead Crust (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)

I have always enjoyed cooking and baking as long as I can remember. One of the things that I have never been much good at was a regular pie crust. So before finding out about my food allergies, I would either buy a pie crust or make a graham cracker crust. I am now going to have to attempt to make pie crusts. Well this time I just cheated and went for more of a shortbread crust and not a typical pie crust.
 I will attempt a regular gluten free pie crust at some point, but just not today…. 🙂
Everyone loved how this pie turned out…
