Deep-Dish Apple Pie

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4 (199 votes)

With all that delicious fruit an apple pie should be healthy, but the truth is a slice can have as much as 750 calories and 30 grams of fat. For the most part, the culprit is the crust. We use whole-wheat pastry flour to add fiber and lower the saturated fat by replacing some of the butter with canola oil. The brown sugar-sweetened filling in this pie is made with two kinds of apples for the perfect balance. A slice has half the calories of a typical version and only 10 grams of fat—sweet!

This is excellent. The pie crust was really sturdy yet very flaky. Super yum.

I loved this recipe! I used a combination of granny smith, golden delicious, fuji, and braeburn apples. It turned out fantastic! My husband was a little disappointed that the crust wasn't flakier but I thought it was good considering the low fat content.

This turns out like the old fashioned, all American, Moms-make-it-'cuz'they-love-you pies! Used a bit of Stevita instead of sugar (see that Joan cut some calories too) Thanks for the recipe.

It's the best apple pie that I have tried in along time. My husband had three helpings and he is not a sweet eater. I live in Cloverdale B.C. Canada

I was looking for a deep dish recipe for peach pie and found this one for apple. It worked wonderfully well, and had rave reviews - - the taste was absolutely scrumptious - - and now everyone is looking for me to make more. Recipe great for just about any deep dish pie filling - - according to personal taste - - used it with blueberry but left out the cinnamon and nutmeg with the second try.
