all the ingredients for my sugar free apple 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!

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.
