Rose Mary Mogan
Originally I did make a LOW CARB CRUST, but it was very difficult to work with, so I decided to give you a recipe using the refrigerated store bought crust instead.
3 lbgolden delicious apples, peeled & sliced thinly
3 lbgranny smith apples, peeled & sliced thinly
1 3/4 csplenda or other zero calorie sweetener
1/8 tspkosher salt
4 Tbspcorn starch
2 tspvietnamese cinnamon
4 Tbsplemon juice
2 pkgdouble crust -refrigerated rolled pie crust
How to Make LOWER CARB SUGAR FREE APPLE PIE
- Add first crust to bottom of pie plate then, arrange to the shape of dish. Add in the seasoned apples. Top apples with second crust, then pinch the edges of the first crust to the edges of the second crust, then flute with fingers or crimp with a fork. Then cut 5-6 slits into top of pie crust. So that steam escapes as pie bakes. Repeat steps for second pie.
- Combine 1 egg with a tablespoon of tap water, then whisk together and brush over the top of crust, this allows the crust to brown evenly on top as it bakes, sprinkle with granulated decorators sugar if desired. Place pie on a cookie sheet to catch any potential drips, and bake in preheated 425 degrees F. oven for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F. and bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until pie is golden brown. Remove from oven allow to cool, and serve plain or with your favorite ice cream or topping. ENJOY
- THIS RECIPE MADE 2 PIES, ENOUGH TO SERVE 16.I CONCLUDED THAT WHILE THIS PIE DOES HAVE LESS CALORIES AND CARBS THAN A REGULAR APPLE PIE, it still has a significant amount of carbs because of the crusts.Nutritional Info-Serves 16, Calories per serving 319, Fat 12g, Cholesterol 10Mg, Sodium 276 Mg, Potassium 209 Mg, Carbs 55g, Fiber 5g, Sugars 19, Protein 2 g.
