Low-Sugar Apple Pie

 The holidays are among us and that means it's time for baking!  I make a large variety of goodies throughout the season, however I do like to take into consideration our family and friends who can't have a lot of sugar.  This Low-Sugar Apple Pie looks and tastes every bit as good as an original apple pie, but with less sugar and calories.  Make sure this is on your baking list for everyone to enjoy!

Ingredients are as follows:

  • 10 packets SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener
  • Pastry dough for 9-inch, 2-crust pie
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 3 to 4 large, firm, tart apples
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 egg, beaten for brushing pie


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 

  2. Peel, core, and slice the apples. 

  3. Line a 9-inch pie pan with half the pastry dough. 

  4. Mix the SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch in a bowl. 

  5. Add apples and coat them well. 

  6. Pour in the apple cider. Stir to combine. 

  7. Pour the apple mixture into the pie pan lined with pastry dough and dot with butter.

  8. Roll out the top crust and drape it over the pie, or lattice weave strips of dough over the top. 

  9. Brush the latticed dough with egg and dust with cinnamon. Crimp the edges and cut several vents in the top. 

  10. Bake 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 350 degrees F. 

  11. Bake 30-40 minutes more, or until the apples are tender when pierced with a skewer and the crust is browned.
