I couple this with 1 quantity of my shortcrust pastry recipe #177343, will give instructions as a note at the end of the filling recipe. Times will not include for making the pie. I put this one by my dietician and she's o'kayed it for diabetics as the sugar is very minimal over one slice. Please note I use granny smith apples and the end result is a tarty tasting filling and not sweet or gelatinous like a lot of commercial products. As an extra I've been known to forget and overcook the filling and it has made great apple sauce but then again not sweet.
