No Sugar Added Apple Pie

This is an experimental Apple Pie which hopefully doesn't send my blood sugar into low Earth orbit. It's made with 100% white grape juice and a sprinkle of Stevia in place of sugar. The apples are fresh. I peeled them with my handy dandy apple peeler and corer machine, a bit of kitchen tool self-indulgence I picked up a year or two ago. The pie is tasty, but not overly sweet. Here's how I made it.

  • 5 apples peeled, cored and sliced.
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup white grape juice
  • 1 tsp. allspice
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. margarine or butter
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 pie crusts
  • Spray oil
  1. Place water, grape juice, allspice, cinnamon, corn starch, flour, in large pot and heat till blended.  
  2. Add apples to the mix and bring to a low boil.
  3. Spray the pie pan with oil and spread bottom pie crust over the pie pan.
  4. Fill the crust with the apple mix.
  5. Sprinkle the apples mix with Splenda or Stevia. Spread small dots of margarine or butter over the top of the filling.
  6. Spread the top crust over the bottom, flute the edges to seal the top and bottom.
  7. Cut 5 evenly placed slits in the top crust to vent while baking
  8. Bake at 350ยบ until the crust edges and top crust begin to brown
  9. Cool for an hour
Serving Suggestion:

It's really good pie, warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream (sugar free for me).  It's lightly sweet and the cinnamon and butter makes it pop.
