Lovely not too sweet. DD (toddler) and I enjoyed this as breakfast which I made gluten free. I made 3/4 of the recipe in a smaller ramekin dish which is approximately 7 1/2" - 8"'s. I made the full amount of crust which was too tough but I blame that on of my gluten free conversion for which I wouldn't recommend in the way it was done. I used lesser brown rice flour, white rice flour and half the amount of tapioca starch to flours and a little less than 3/4 tsp guar gum, I think adding too much water and mixing too much may be the culprit, I made a cutting motion with two butter knives as my food processor has gone to its resting place. I buttered the ramekin dish as we are not watching weight. I used organic Lobo apples, a not so sweet, delicious, hard type of apple, white rice flour and half the amount of tapioca starch in both filling and crumble, a bit of allspice in place of nutmeg as we do not consume intoxicants, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for ALMOST 5 GAME.
I decided to give DH a treat and actually make a crust for a change. In an attempt to make me feel a little better about that I used whole wheat flour, I don't recommend that, LOL. Also I made a very ragged outer edge on the crust in an attempt to give it a "Halloweenie" look but it just looked like someone didn't know how to make a crust. Anyway, the pie was delicious in spite of my crust tampering. I cur the apples thicker but that is the way I like them in a pie. I used Splenda in place of the sugar and I loved the fact that this recipe isn't over sweet. It's just sweet enough to allow the apples and spice to shine and enjoy the spotlight. Yumm!
I'm not on WW but I enjoyed it a lot. I used a Tenderflake crust to save time. I used 4 medium to large Cortland apples. I used only cinnamon but 1/2 teaspoon. The crumble is great. Delicious. Thanks Lainey :) Made for 123 hit wonders
I made this for my husband, who loves apple pie but I'm trying to cut down on all the butter/fat involved! I had a lot of fun making this. I used Splenda for the sugar & used my hands for a lot of the mixing! Hubby liked it but thought the crust wasn't quite sweet enough so I may add some brown sugar or more Splenda. I also used about 1/3 cup Splenda in the apple mix. Thank u for sharing; am hoping this will be the "go-to" pie for our home!
O.K..mine might have a few more than 5 pts. included as I dotted the top of the crumble with a few pats of Smart Balance Butter. But, I will say this is the easiest pie I've ever made. I'm not a pie maker b/c of being intimadated by making piecrust, but doing this in the foodprocessor made it so very easy. It came together in no-time. It took about 2 1/2 T. of water. What a great fall-time recipe Lainey:-) Made for HolidayTag.
Great pie served warm. Well worth the 5 points.
