More detailed directions (with pictures)
It all started with the apples. How could we NOT be inspired to make them into something warm and wonderful to serve our friends!
Now let’s gather all the ingredients we need to make this scrumptious pie.
Plop those apples in a large pot.
Note: you may notice my apple slices look a little brown, I thought I would be clever and pre-peel, slice and freeze them. It was clever, but now they’re not as fresh as they could be!
Next pour in the unsweetened apple juice.
Then the erythritol & cinnamon.
It should look something like this…
Mix it all together then add the cornstarch and water in slowly, mixing to avoid lumps.
Simmer together for 5 minutes.
Then bring to a boil, reduce and simmer for 10-15 more minutes.
The cornstarch will slightly thicken the mixture.
Remove from heat and pour mixture into pre-prepared pie crust and pie dish.
Cover with pastry topping.
Cut the excess pastry off, pinch the edges for a “pie crust effect” and cut three lines across the top of the pie to allow for steam.
Cook at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until the pie is golden brown and looks crumbly.
Once the pie is done, take it out and baste with butter.
Sprinkle cinnamon on top and let cool.
Enjoy this wonderful, sugar free delight : )
