Low Sugar Apple Pie

Submitted by: BTVMADS

Introduction

This isn't a low calorie food -- it's a fall season splurge! -- but it is much lower in sugar than most apple pies.

Ingredients

    8 large apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
    1 tbsp. lemon juice
    2 tbsp. butter
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. each nutmeg and allspice
    2 pre-made pie crusts

Directions

In a large bowl combine the sliced apples, sugars, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Let the apples macerate at room temperature for 30 minutes to three hours. Then, place the apples and their juices in a strainer that is placed over a large bowl (to capture the juices). Let the apples drain for about 15-30 minutes or until you have at least 1/2 cup (120 ml) of juice. Combine the juices with the butter in a small saucepan. Boil 6 to 7 minutes or until the liquid has reduced to about 1/3 cup and is syrupy and lightly caramelized.

Press one of the pie crusts into a pie pan. Place the apple mixture into the first pie crust. Evenly pour/drizzle the apple juice syrup over the apples.


Cut one of the pie crusts into strips to make the lattice for the pie. You will probably only use 1/2-2/3 of this crust. Overlap the strips on top of the apple filling.

Place the pie in the fridge to chill the pastry while you preheat the oven to 425.

Bake the pie (placed on a separate baking sheet to catch runoff) for 45 minutes or until things are good and bubbly and the apples are tender, but not mushy.


Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and enjoy!

Serves 9.
