Dessert recipes: Sugar-Free Apple Pie

November is National Diabetes Month. Here's a sugar-free version of a great traditional dessert that diabetics usually have to pass up. I guarantee your whole family will fall for this delicious treat.

Ingredients

⅓ cup frozen apple juice concentrate

Sugar substitute equal to 8 teaspoons of sugar

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pastry for 9-inch double-crust pie

8 cups thinly sliced peeled baking apples

1 tablespoon margarine

Preparation

1. Combine the first four ingredients.

2. Line the pie plate with bottom crust; add apples. Pour juice mixture over apples; dot with margarine.

3. Roll out the remaining pastry to fit top of pie; cut slits or an apple shape in top. Place over filling; seal and flute the edges.

4. Bake at 375°F for 35 minutes. Increase the temperature to 400°F; bake 15–20 minutes or until the apples are tender.
