Healthy Apple Pie

Low Calorie Apple Pie

Kimberley K. Eggleston
Limiting the sugar helps to make this apple pie a little healthier. We prefer this healthy apple pie warm, with a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt or ice cream.

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Crust:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chilled butter
  • 3 Tbsp ice water
  • Filling:
  • 2 cups peeled, cored and sliced granny smith apples
  • 2 cups peeled, cored, and sliced gala apples
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp flour
  • 2 Tbsp butter

Preparation:

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut in the chilled butter, using two knives or a pastry blender. Sprinkle the ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time into the mixture, mixing with a fork after each addition. Using your hands, form the dough into a ball. Roll the dough into an 11-inch circle between two sheet of plastic wrap coated with cooking spray. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

3.Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap from the pie dough. Turn the dough over into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray, and remove the remaining layer of plastic wrap. Press the dough into the pie plate, and flute the edges, using your fingers.

4.Toss the apples together with the lemon juice in a large bowl. In a seperate bowl, combine the remaining sugars and flour. Combine this sugar mixture with the apples, and then pour the apples into the pie crust. Use a knife to cut the remaining butter into small pieces, and distribute the butter pieces over the top of the pie.

5. Bake at 425°F for 10 minutes, then turn the heat down to 350°F and bake an additional 30 minutes.

I made this pie and I added cinnamon and saltanas, I think without them it would be quite bland. And you definatly need something like cream with it, otherwise a very good, healthy apple pie recipe! :)
