Caramel Apple Pie ~ Raw
5 apples, peeled and sliced 1/8 inch thick
1/2 cup raisins
4 tablespoons agave
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice Crust:
1 cup walnuts
1 cup raisins Caramel:
4 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons agave
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons water
1. For filling, in a lidded container (I used a zip lock box), toss the apples and 1/2 cup raisins with the agave, lemon juice, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice until well coated. Spread out on a lined dehydrator sheet and dry for about 2 hours, stirring once or twice. This isn't meant to dry the apples, but to soften them and let the flavor intensify.
2. For crust, in a food processor fitted with the "S" blade, process the walnuts and 1 cup raisins until the mix starts to stick together. This takes a couple minutes. Press the mix into the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of an 8 inch spring form pan. Put in the freezer for a half hour to firm.
3. For the caramel, in a bullet type blender, puree the almond butter, agave, olive oil, and water until very smooth. Spoon the apple mixture from the dehydrator into the chilled pie crust and pour the caramel evenly on top. Chill for another half hour, if desired. For extra creamy goodness, serve with a scoop of vanilla banana ice cream.

This may possibly be the best apple pie I've ever had.
