This is a sugar free fruit pie that is very good. I've served it before and no one guessed it was sugar free. You can use any kind of fruit you like. Apples, cherries or peaches work best.

The apple pie was delicious and no-one guessed that it was sugar-free! I added a dash of ginger and used a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg and this worked out really well. Try it! Read More

I used the sweetest Georgia peaches for this pie. I followed the recipe to a "T " and it was runny runny runny. I had made other sugarfree pies that didn't completely set up so after reading the reviews on this one I thought well maybe the steps taken in this recipe will make for a better pie as far as it setting up. Boy was I wrong this one didn't set up at all. It was a flop and not only that it tasted bad. I will go back to my old way of making sugar free pies. I'm glad however everyone else had luck with it but for me it was a bomb. Read More

I used this recipe for Thanksgiving Day for the simple fact that I'm a borderline diabetic and I hate it when others get to eat pie and I can't. After the meal was over and all had their desserts...I looked around and the apple pie was gone and several were asking where I got the pie at and I told them that I made it and they said "No Way!" So I would like to say Thank You for submitting this recipe and I truly recommend it to everyone. Read More

This recipe turned out really good. I have an insulin dependent diabetic family member and he was the only one informed that it was sugar free so he could have a piece of the pie.He didn't feel left out at dessert. Everyone raved about how good it was. Read More

I made this pie with 1 cup of Splenda for baking & added probably 1/2 stick of butter into the mixture for a more "authentic" apple pie taste. I used 5 big Granny Smith apples and it wasn't too tart. I've never made an apple pie using cornstarch but this worked out great because it made the sweetened spice/butter mixture stick to every single piece of the cut up apples. It was the perfect combination of sweet & tart. It was so delicious no one could believe it was sugar free! I will definitely make this again! Read More

A safe low glycemic index sweetner is agave nectar. A 1/4 cup of agave nectar can be used instead of 1 cup of sugar and it would not spike your blood sugar and it taste great!!! Use the agave nectar. It is better than honey and maple syrup because it is is lowest of the GI chart!! Read More
