1 1/2 cups walnuts
7 medium apples, different varieties
2 cup filtered water
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp fine sea saltIn a food processor fitted with the S blade, blend the walnuts into a fine meal. Add 8 dates and process for 20-30 seconds, just until the dates are blended and combined. Press the dough into a 9″ spring form pan, making the crust go up the sides about 3/4″, then cover with plastic and freeze until ready to use.
Add the remaining 16 dates to a small bowl and cover with water; soak for 10-15 minutes. When the dates have finished soaking, strain off the water into a measuring cup (you will need 2 cups total water, if you do not have enough, just add some). Add the dates, 2 cups soaking water, cinnamon and salt to a high speed blender and blend until smooth; about 15-20 seconds. Transfer mix to a large bowl.
While the dates are soaking, prepare the apples by peeling them and cutting into medium sized chunks. As each apple is finished, transfer the chunks to the bowl with the date mixture and stir to cover apples (this way the apples will not brown).
Remove the pie crust from the freezer and pile with apple filling. Freeze for at least an hour before serving. Keep leftovers frozen.
