“There's nothing like this old-fashioned apple dessert recipe to top off a good dinner. It's low in calories and can be made even lower if prepared with sugar substitute.”


    • 5 cups sliced peeled baking apples
    • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute-sugar blend equivalent (see Tips)
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • ½ teaspoon apple pie spice
    • Topping

    • ¼ cup sugar or sugar substitute-sugar blend equivalent (see Tips)
    • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • ¼ teaspoon apple pie spice
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • Frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed (optional)


  • 1 For filling: Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl combine apples, 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute, lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon of the apple pie spice. Transfer apple mixture to a 2-quart square baking dish.
