Prepare the pie crust according the recipe and press into a 9-inch pie plate. Place 1/3 of the apples and all the salt, cinnamon, dates, and vanilla powder in a food processor. Process the mixture until it is almost the consistency of applesauce. Continue adding apples, processing only until apples are chopped into small to medium sized pieces. Add raisins to the mixing bowl. Stir in ground flax seeds, mix well, and set aside for 15 minutes. The raisins and flax seeds will soak up the juice from the apples. Pour the apple mixture into the prepared pie crust.
