If YOU ARE WATCHING WHAT YOU EAT, & are craving a tasty low fat, lower sugar dessert, this Apple Pie may be what you are looking for. The sugar in this pie is much lower when compared to the sugars in a regular apple pie. It is quick simple & easy to make also.

Much of the sugars comes from the natural sweetness of the apples, as it is made with a Zero calorie sweetener, & no butter is added to the pie.

It really does taste great, & while you wouldn't have this all the time, an occasional dessert may be just what you need as a pick me up. Plus you omit having the guilt. Give it a try.

Slice cored apples & put into a large bowl. Sprinkle with the 2 Tbs. lemon juice, and toss to coat all sides. Now add the zero calorie sweetener into a small bowl, then add the flour, and cinnamon and toss to blend together. Then pour over the sliced apples, and toss to coat.
4
Arrange the first pie crust into the bottom of a deep dish pie plate, then fill with the sliced apples. Cover with the second pie crust. Sealing the top crust to the bottom crust, and crimping along the edge. Then make 4 to 6 slits in top of crust, to allow the steam to escape while cooking. Beat the egg with water and brush the egg wash over the top of the pie. Sprinkle with decorators sugar if desired. Place in preheated 425 degree F. oven and bake for 15 minutes. Then lower temperature to 350 and bake for an additional 45 to 50 minutes, until pie is golden brown.

Remove from oven and allow pie to cool.
