Apple pie that makes its own crust

Recommended Posts

mg_2204

Hello!

 

This is a desert I make often for the whole family. Since I came across that recipe, I've never made another 'regular' apple pie.

 

Note : The original recipe uses 3/4 cups of sugar

 

Quick and easy!

 

APPLE PIE THAT MAKES ITS OWN CRUST

 

Use a non-stick pie dish for best results!

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of sugar (sometimes I put a little less)

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 pinch of salt

1/2 cup of plain flour

2 big eggs, beaten

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

4 apples, diced

1/2 cup of chopped nuts

cinnamon to your taste

 

In a bowl, mix the 4 first ingredients.

 

In another (bigger) bowl, mix together all the other ingredients.

 

Add the first mix to the second. Stir well with a wooden spoon until the apples are well mixed in the batter.

 

Put the mix in a non-stick pie dish (or use a regular one but grease it slightly before).

 

Cook at 350°F for about 30 minutes. For fan assisted ovens, it may take less time! For better results, check a few times.

 

The pie is ready when golden. Enjoy!

Hi Marie,

That is quite all right! LOL! By exchange, I mean Starch, Fats and Protein.Have you ever tried this with Splenda? I am not on meds & am trying to control with diet & exercise, which is going well. I am on a 1500 calorie diet by the dietician. I made some Cinnamon cookies last night from a diabetic cookbook I purchased. They were yummy, and you can have 3 and it is only 1/2 starch for all THREE! They are tiny, but wonderful. Thanks for the receipe! Tina

Hello again Tina!

 

I'm very sorry, I don't have the fat, protein, sugar values for this recipe. It was originally given to me by someone who is on the 'Slim for Life' program. I'll try to get a hold of her and ask, ok?

 

I did it once with Spenda but my family didn't like it.

 

I still make desert for my family but I try to avoid it myself. On either Friday or Saturday I'll have a tiny bite of some low cal desert I've made. The less I eat desert, the less I miss it.

 

I'll try to get back with the 'exchanges'!

 

Bye!

 

Marie

Thank you Marie, I would appreciate it! It sounds yummy. Being new to all of this makes it difficult. I am sure as time goes by I will get used to it. Meal planning is a tough one with my 6yr old and husband.(they are too much alike........FUSSY! LOL) I try to make one meal so I dont feel like I am sticking out like a sore thumb. My husband helps with the planning, which is great! If your friend does not have the exchanges, that is fine too. Thanks a bunch
