"Apple pie is my favorite pie. I make it for holidays and just because sometimes too. I wanted to cut out some of the fat from the butter so I cut it down and eliminate the sugar. It makes it caramel and better for you."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
  2. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work of crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
  3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I,m curious to know how many people got the new "allrecipes" mag. and what everyone thinks of it? I love it!

I made this pie yesterday and found it to be absolutely wonderful! I made no changes to the recipe, followed it to the letter. I can't wait to have another slice with whipped cream after suppe...

We really liked this pie and it didn't seem to make a taste difference that it was less sugar.
