Sugarless Apple Pie
No artificial sweeteners are used in this double-crust apple pie. The sweetness comes entirely from the fruit and apple juice concentrate.
1 (12-ounce) can frozen concentrated apple juice
1/4 cup margarine
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Pastry for 1 (9-inch) double-crust pie*
1 tablespoon milk
- In a saucepan blend frozen concentrated apple juice and margarine. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Add butter, cinnamon, and salt; mix well.

- Spoon into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell and top with a pie shell dough; seal the edge and cut vents in the top. Brush with milk.
