One more recipe and win the books

Apple Pie….oh my!

I made this last weekend from the “Y’all Come Over” cookbook….we savored every bite.  Even hubby could have it because you use a sugar substitute in it which for a diabetic is a blessing.   This pie is so good and you can’t tell you used a sugar substitute.  I did make a small addition (I’m just that way!) and will list below.   Make the recipe – you will love it and save a few calories…..but don’t stop there… there’s a give-a-way following the recipe!  don’t miss it!

Apple Pie Sweetened with Sugar Substitute

(My choice is Splenda Sugar Substitute)

Piecrust for 2 pies (homemade or 1 {15-oz. package} refrigerated pie crust which contains two crusts)

1 cup sugar substitute  ( I used Splenda Sugar Substitute as my choice and also added 3 Tbsp. of Splenda brown sugar substitute to give another level of flavor to the tart apples – it was a good choice to do so!)

2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon (if you use a little more, it won’t hurt! – my notes)

5 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

2 Tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Fit 1 pie crust into a 9-inch pie pan.  In a large bowl mix together the sugar substitute(s), flour, and cinnamon.   Fold in the sliced apples and sprinkle with the lemon juice. (I stirred again after adding the lemon juice).   Pour into the pie crust.  Dot with the 2 tablespoons of butter.  Place the remaining pie crust over the apples and crimp the edges.  Make 4 to 5 slits in the top to allow the steam to escape.  Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.

 

GIVE-A-WAY!

Now, for the give-a-way.   As I said in an earlier post, this cookbook “Y’all Come Over” is great.  Also, before each chapter, there is the best little story that you will laugh, enjoy, and will relish reading each one.

  Her other cookbook, “Bless Your Heart:  Saving the World One Casserole at a Time” is just as good.  Oh, goodness, the recipes!  AND the stories!  Both of these are a must have.
