What a great Fall dessert. It just doesn't get any easier and the flavors of apple and spice can't be beat. I topped mine with no sugar added maple walnut ice cream and a drizzle of sugar free caramel sauce. Mmmmm!
Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I have been looking all over for the Lucky Leaf Apple Pie Filling that is made with Splenda. I have not been able to find that product. This recipe is so much better than a canned apple pie filling. I ate a cup of this filling with some Kashi cereal sprinkled over the top. Delicious!
I have been making a recipe similar to this for quite some time but don't add the water. I put the apples (granny smith) in the crock pot for about 4 hours adding the cinnamon and splenda about half way through (to taste). When its done its basically a homemade applesauce and turns a bowl of oatmeal into a dessert.
This tasted great but 4-5 hours on low was way too long. I checked mine after 2.5 hours and I had applesauce. It was good but I was expecting to eat chunks of apple with ice cream, not applesauce. I used Splenda and one teaspoon of cinnamon.
Does not get easier then this! Great topping to have on hand for all kinds of things. During the last hour of cooking it was looking a little saucer then I would have liked so just a bit of thickener. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the post.
This was good. I would give it 4.5 stars. This is the perfect recipe to use on apples that aren't crisp anymore, but otherwise still good. I cooked 3 apples about 2 hours on high heat although I think they could have cooked longer too.
I made it today for my mom's birthday and of my gosh it's delicious! Everyone liked it and had seconds. I actually diced the apples and served with church strawberry ice cream...yummy!
I microwaved a couple apples in micro steamer. used 2 tblsp water, 1/2 tsp splenda, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Microwaved on high for 4 min. Served in cereal bowl, topped with fat free whipped cream, and 1/3 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal. Very tasty. almost like a Apple Crisp.
I made a half recipe and the flavor was better than I thought it would be. I did not detect the Splenda after-taste like some recipes have, so I was glad about that. I cooked on low for 4 hours and my apples sort of macerated and lost their shape. Still tasted great. I topped mine with the fat-free Cool Whip. My kids had theirs with vanilla ice cream. This also would make a nice topping for pancakes. I will probably reduce the cooking time to 3 hours next time. Thanks for posting this recipe.
My family and I LOVED this "crustless" apple pie. That says a lot because they are a hard crowd to please. I didn't use Splenda (personal issues with it), and subbed 3/4 cup of sugar. I also added a little bit of ground clove and about 2 tablespoons of organic flax seed meal to add some fiber. No one even noticed I put it in! I will make this time and time again. My brother (and biggest critic) even agreed that it was good enough to serve to company!
