Country Apple Pie
(makes 8 servings)
1 refrigerated ready-to-bake pie crust, about 7 1/2 ounces (225 g)
3 Granny Smith apples, 6 ounces (180 g) each, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1/3 cup (6 g) spoonable brown sugar substitute
1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon (12 g) reduced-fat margarine
pinch of ground mace
pinch of ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon (15 ml) skim milk
1 teaspoon (4 g) granulated sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C), Gas Mark 4. Place pie crust in a 6-inch (15 cm) tart pan or round shallow casserole, letting the dough drape over the sides of the pan.
- Fill the crust with apple slices. Sprinkle with brown sugar substitute and cinnamon. Dot with margarine. Spindle on mace and nutmeg; fold pastry edges up over the apples.
- Brush the pastry top with milk and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 45 minutes, until apple filling is bubbly and crust is golden. Cool slightly and serve.
