Low Sugar Apple Pie :)
See that? It's actually a Healthy Homemade Apple pie and quite delicious. You will be pleasantly surprised! I had several apples past their prime and wanted to use them, so I made one of these yesterday. We really like it.
Low Sugar Apple Pie Filling
7 cups of apples, washed, cored, and sliced thinly (I leave the peelings on, but you don't have to.)
1 Tablespoon quick tapioca OR 3 Tablespoons corn starch
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
1. Stir all of the above ingredients together thoroughly.
2. Pour into a pie plate lined with a pie crust (refer to recipe in my last post, only this time, I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup unbleached.)
3. Cut 3 vents in the top crust and put it on top of the pie and flute the edges. Protect edges of pie crust with strips of foil.
4. Bake in pre-heated 350 F oven for 1 hour. Then, insert a small sharp knife into one of the vent holes and check to see if the apples are done. They need to be Very Tender. It could take up to 90 minutes altogether.
5. Cool before serving.
