My sister is boarderline diabetic and controls her sugar intake with diet. Here is an easy apple pie with all the flavour but non of the extra sugar.
- 5 lbs apples
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened orange juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or if you're like me, use 1 cap full)
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Clean, Peel and Dice some of the apples (2-3) and add to a 2 quart saucepan. Add orange juice, lemon juice and cinnamon. Allow to "stew" on medium heat for 5 minutes. This will make the apples soft and sweeten naturally in their juices.
- Clean, peel and slice the rest of the apples and put the lid on with the heat on low for an additional 5 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and mix the corn starch and water in a separate cup. Add to apples and stir. This will prevent the apple mix from being too thin and gloopy during the cutting process.
- Add to the bottom crust of your favourate pie crust (be sure to perforate it with a fork first!), add filling and the top layer of dough.
- Since the filling is still hot, the cooking time will be cut down; bake at 450 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
- This pie is easily prepared and frozen to be cooked later.
