Crustless Apple Pie

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by 3KillerBs

I can't make decent pie crust. So I make my pies crustless in a casserole dish instead. When I lived in Massachusetts, where apples are in great abundance every fall, I'd take this to church potlucks where half a dozen heart patients would see to it that I took home an empty, washed plate. They'd missed pie on their low-fat, low-sugar diets. A very controlled portion of real butter, and the natural sweetness of a good apple, make this dessert rich enough to satisfy.

This gets a 5 because I didn't think it was possible to enjoy cooked apples without any sweetener. Use less butter (maybe next time I will omit it).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use 1 teaspoon of the butter to grease a round, 2-quart casserole dish that has a lid.
  2. Pile in the chopped apples.
  3. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and cloves.
  4. Dot surface with the remaining butter.
  5. Cover and bake at 350°F for 45 to 60 minutes or until apples are tender.
  6. This is easy to expand to fill as large a covered casserole as your family or group requires.
