Homemade Apple Pie

#4 Low Fat Apple Pie

Ingredients:

  1. 5-6 Granny Smith apples
  2. 3 Tbsp applesauce
  3. 3/4 c Brown Sugar
  4. 1/2 tsp Salt
  5. 2 tsp Cinnamon Sugar
  6. 1 tsp Corn Starch
  7. 2 Pie Shells
  8. Egg White

Directions:

  • 5-6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, sliced about 1/4” thick
  • In a large frying pan, melt 3 Tbsp butter on medium heat, and add apple slices.
  • Stir gently, occasionally. Add about 3/4 c  brown sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. Continue to occasionally stir, sprinkling in 2 tsp cinnamon sugar.
  • As apples cook (5-7 min), they will soften, and there will be a syrup formed. If the syrup is thin, sprinkle in 1 tsp of corn starch to thicken. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, if desired.
  • With a slotted spoon, place apples in the pie shell, then pour the remaining syrup over the top.
  • Slice a second pie shell into strips as pie lattice topping. Brush with egg wash (egg white with a little water). Sprinkle with decorative white sugar. Bake at 350 degrees 20-30 min to brown crust.
*You can omit lemon juice for personal preference.Serve with light vanilla ice cream and fat-free cool whip.
