Homemade apple pie doesn't have to be complicated. Or loaded with sugar. Or include a buttery crust. But it does have to be incredibly delicious... Some traditions are worth clinging to!

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Cool/Chill: 5 hours

Ingredients:

2 tbsp. cornstarch

8 cups peeled and thinly sliced Fuji or Gala apples (about 6 apples)

2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener; see HG FYI)

2 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. salt

2 sheets (8 crackers) cinnamon graham crackers, finely crushed

Optional topping: natural light whipped topping (like Skinny Truwhip or So Delicious CocoWhip! Light)

Directions:

Spray a 9" deep-dish pie pan with nonstick spray.

In a large nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1 1/2 cups cold water, and stir to dissolve. Add all remaining ingredients except graham crackers. Mix well.

Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until apples have softened and mixture is thick and gooey, 12 - 15 minutes.

Carefully transfer filling to the pie pan, and smooth out the surface with the back of a spoon.

Let cool completely, about 1 hour.

Refrigerate until chilled and set, at least 4 hours.

Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed graham crackers.

HG FYI: Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener is about twice as sweet as sugar. If using a no-calorie granulated sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar instead of Truvia, double the amount called for in this recipe.
