Sugar Free Apple Pie

4 Jun

As you may know, I’m a huge fan of baking. I frequently make treats for the office. However, my boss is diabetic and can never partake of the sugary goodness. I resolved to make him a delicious sugar free treat before I leave for Thailand. Last night I achieved sugar-free perfection. I made Swedish Apple Pie, with a few substitutions of course. I also usually use one and a half times the amount of filling per pie to ensure that it’s full of apple-y deliciousness. Here’s the recipe:

Swedish Apple Pie

Topping:
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
Mix dry ingredients. Cut in cold butter using a pastry blender until well mixed and the butter pieces are about pea-sized.

Filling:
2 cups cooked, sliced apples
2 tbsp flour
3/4 cup sugar
Pinch salt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
Smash apples slightly. Add flour, sugar and salt. Beat egg and vanilla, add to apple mixture. Beat sour cream until stiff (it doesn’t get super stiff). Fold into apple mixture. Pour into 9″ pie crust. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with topping mixture. Bake 15 minutes longer.

**To make sugar free, substitute 1/2 cup agave syrup for the sugar in the filling and 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar for the sugar in the topping.
