I just want to make an important note for those wanting to serve diabetics: this is reduced sugar, not sugar free, as you can see in the Nutrition Facts. (apples naturally contain sugar) Also, white flour is readily converted to sugar in the body, with a Glycemic Index (GI) of 85, higher than that of the apple's 40 and even the table sugar (GI of 70). If you are looking to make this diabetic friendly, try replacing the flour with almond meal (GI of 15) and soy flour (GI of 25), and using Truvia or Purevia (a combination of Stevia and erythritol, both GI of 0) as the sweetener.
Absolutely delicious! My husband, who considers himself an apple pie guru, declared that this was the best apple pie he'd ever eaten. It was, without question, a big hit at my holiday dinner. It'll certainly be back on the menu well before the next major holiday!
This is a great, standard recipe as is. However, I have also added 1/2 t. of nutmeg, per other suggestions, and 1T of lemon juice. I also upped the flour to 2T to compensate for the lemon juice. I have also made this with different kinds of apples or a mix and everytime this pie comes out great. Thanks Quilting B.!!!!!!
@ CareBearQ - thanks for an excellent post, and excellent revisions to a sugar-reduced and carb reduced pie. Most people are not paying attention to the important ingredients you point out.<br/>As the pie recipe posted is incredibly high in calorie-count, carbs, fat and sugar, it's amazing. If you add a scoop of ice cream to this you have an 700-800 (or more) calorie dessert! Yikes !
Wonderful! I would never have guessed the pie was sugar-free.
Thank you so much for posting. I made a mini pie for my hubby, unborn baby (5.5 months preggo) and I tonight and it was amazing! This was.the first fruit pie I've ever made. My hubby swears that I am lying. The recipe was extremely easy and I made no other adjustments.
Made this as one of my many pies for Thanksgiving. It was fantastic. Everyone loved it and no one realized it was sugar free until I told them. I had one diabetic at the holidays and needed a special treat for him. Super super easy to make!
I made this pie twice this weekend and it was gone in 30 min. from the time I took it out of the oven. I used the crumble topping recipe from Lifesaver and that is my son's favorite part.
No one would ever know it was sugar-free. Wonderful pie, enjoyed by all.
I made this a few months ago for a card party. Now each month I'm making two or three.
